I have a shapefile of OSM data. I plan to use the data for an ArcGIS Engine application, and I was wondering if there are any existing solutions to getting the data's schema into your typical GIS format. What I'm talking about is the "tags" attribute. It contains a comma-separated list of categories and their values, whereas typically you would see these values as separate fields in a feature class.
Are there any tools available that separate the tag values out into separate fields? It would probably be straightforward to create a Python script that separates these out, but I'd like to know if a solution already exists before I create one myself.
