I imported into postgis osm data using osm2pgsql. My objective was to get a database with roads elements for a specific region of Italy (i.e. traffic lights, driving directions and turning direction at junction). However there are a lot of missing data, because almost all the cells are empty. I would like to know if I did something wrong and if there is an alternative way to obtain these data. For instance I would like to know if there exists a way to retrieve data from google map (transport infrastructure or even real time traffic information)? Thank you Selini
