NAME

osmium-output-headers - Header options that can be set on output files

DESCRIPTION

Most osmium commands that write OSM files can set values in the file header of the OSM file using the --output-header option.

The format generally is --output-header=OPTION=VALUE. For some commands you can use the special format --output-header=OPTION! (ie. an exclamation mark after the OPTION and no value set) to set the value to the same as in the input file. See the individual command man pages for where this is allowed.

HEADER OPTIONS

generator
Set the “generator program” value. Default is “osmium/VERSION”. Can also be set using the --generator option. (XML and PBF files only.)
xml_josm_upload
Value of the upload attribute on the osm XML element (true or false) for use in JOSM. (XML files only.)
osmosis_replication_timestamp
Timestamp used in replication (PBF files only).
osmosis_replication_sequence_number
Sequence number used in replication (PBF files only).
osmosis_replication_base_url
Base URL for change files used in replication (PBF files only).
sorting
Set the Sort.Type_then_ID property in the PBF header if set to Type_then_ID. Other values are currently not suppored. (PBF files only). Note that this only sets the header option, it does not actually sort the file! Use osmium sort for that.

EXAMPLES

Copy the file in.osm.pbf to out.osm.pbf setting the generator to myscript:

osmium cat --output-header=generator=myscript -o out.osm.pbf in.osm.pbf
