What is OSM about?
The OpenStreetMap (OSM) project was founded in the United Kingdom in 2004 and is aimed at creating a free, world-wide geographic data set. OpenStreetMap wants to be for geodata what Wikipedia is for encyclopedic knowledge. The focus is mainly on transport infrastructure (streets, paths, railways, rivers,buildings), but OpenStreetMap also collects a multitude of points of interest, buildings, natural features and landuse information.
What is this Plugin?
The C4D OpenStreetMap importer is a very powerful importer which lets you simply drag and drop a *.osm or *.osm.xml file into Cinema4D. The data is is first compacted into a binary representation of the text based XML data, which is much more efficient to work with and allows you to import data sets of up to 2GB if you have enough memory.There is no other software, for any application, on any platform that will let you import and work with such massive data sets. Once the data has loaded into C4D, you can then begin filtering out things that you do not need.Before converting to the filtered data to splines or polygon areas.
