Hourly or daily diff files containing all referenced data

Večerek, Radim

Hi all,

We are building a global database of some places of interest.

The initial step has been: Parsing the latest planet file as a stream of entities provided by Osmosis (a custom plugin used), then storing objects into local DB. No OSM Entities are kept permanently so far.

Now, again using Osmosis and combined diffs we need to keep the database in sync. The problem here is that those combined diff files (in .osc.gz format) may not contain all Nodes referenced by created or modified Ways. Building geometries for them is impossible in many cases.

Is it actually possible to access any diff files (Preferably using Osmosis, but not limited to), that contain data for all referenced Nodes without maintaining some form of planet file clone containing huge volume of data?


Kind Regards,
