OpenStreetMap-in-a-Box (short *OSM-in-a-Box* or osminabox) is a dedicated server software which imports semi-structured OpenStreetMap (OSM) data and stores it as geographic features (entities). In addition, it keeps its base data in sync with the original OSM hosts. It is scalable, offers well-known geographic web services and is based on proven software components. As of now this is a read-only database (see [[Discussion]]). Updates need to be fed through the usual OSM software and hosts.

Often it’s important to have an own map server either because one needs reliable and fast webservices or because one wants to have individual map graphics (e.g. no buildings) and regionalized contents (e.g. local names). OpenStreetMap-in-a-Box (OSM-in-a-Box) delivers a software bundle which does this 'out-of-the-box' with an easy installer. Using OSM-in-a-box users get their map mashups with personalized styling which includes nice loooking background topographic maps which is something which you don't get with Google Maps & Co. Its written in Java and based on PostgreSQL/PostGIS and !GeoServer.

The OpenStreetMap-in-a-Box software consists of following parts:
33 14 Stefan Keller
* A converter (Java) called *osm2gis* which imports OSM data and stores the relevant part of it in the database (PostgreSQL/PostGIS) in a geospatial, relational database schema.
34 1 Anonymous
* A spatial information server with geographic web services (!GeoServer), like WMS, Tiling/Caching and WFS (read-only). 
35 1 Anonymous
* A web site to demonstrate the project (see showcase below).

...as we are aware of (as of Mai 2011) besides "osmosis":http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Osmosis (Java, Open Source) which is the robust software directly used by OSM database. Therefore it's tied to the OSM schema (nodes, ways, relations, tags). Can create linestrings but no polygons. Can do bbox and some filtering.

* "osm2gis/OpenStreetMap-in-a-Box":http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OpenStreetMap-in-a-Box (Java, Open Source) - Outputs relational geospatial entities (as opposed to OSM schema), like roads, railways, pois, buildings, etc. for regions (i.e. smaller than planet). Uses PostGIS and hstore. Can do differential update.
42 14 Stefan Keller
* "osm2pgsql":http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Osm2pgsql (C++, Open Source) - mostly used by Mapnik renderer. Outputs a schema with osm_point, osm_line, osm_road and osm_polygon. Usage of hstore gives flexible tag access. Produces still osm_nodes, osm_ways and osm_rels which comes close to OSM schema. Does 'heavy' filtering (unless parametrized otherwise). Can do differential update.
43 24 Stefan Keller
* "Osm2postgresql":http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Osm2postgresql (Bash, Open Source) - Sets up a PostGIS database, imports OSM data usinng osmosis (including multi-polygons with holes) and proposes a classification.
44 23 Stefan Keller
* "imposm":http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Imposm (Python and uses C/C++ libraries like GEOS, Open Source) - Import tool similar to osm2pgsql with no diff functionality but support for custom database schemas with separate tables for each data type lie osm2gis.
