January 28, 2019: Looking for Mapzen Metro Extracts? You may have been redirected here from the Mapzen Foundation website. OSM Extracts are free, powered by open-source software, and now generally available (that is, the developer preview is complete). OSM Extracts continues to refresh data every day!
Fresh & Local Each day, OSM Extracts by Interline mirrors the entire OpenStreetMap planet and creates city and region sized extracts. The perfect size to run your own regional routing engine (using, say, Valhalla), to generate your own map tiles, or to build your own creation (using QGIS or other GIS software).
Open OSM Extracts is inspired by Michal Migurski's Extractotron and Mapzen's Metro Extracts. Both are now defunct, but we've learned from them and built their best aspects into PlanetUtils (the open-source library that powers OSM Extracts).
