Imports Open Street Map Data

Open Street Map is an open source XML based file format for City Map data.

The OSM Import node parses OSM files and converts them into Houdini geometry.


Also see the OSM Filter SOP, OSM Buildings SOP and MapBox SOP for more OSM related workflows.


All of the OSM Tags are parsed and stored as primitive attributes, hop over to the geometry spreadsheet to see more info about the data you imported.
