comment Is Cloudmade still updating OSM data downloads?
@Mapperz I have previously looked at geofabrik but they break the Americas out into multiple different sections. I'm not sure how successfully I could update my existing americas-only PostGIS database from this source

comment Joining 2 tables to create layer in Geoserver with MultiPolygon and Point data types
@Crazenezz the problem you're describing also happens if GeoServer publishes an Oracle view that isn't registered in user_sdo_geom_metadata (Oracle's equivalent of PostGIS geometry_columns). If you have added your view in PostGIS (not via GeoServer) and included it in geometry_columns but it doesn't work try restarting GeoServer to reload all layers.

comment Partially cached maps
GeoServer with GeoWebCache can easily support this, but like geographika said you need to provide some details about your platform.

comment Large Open Street Map OSM file to Shapefile. Is there any hope for 32-bit FME?
@GIS-Jonathan a co-worker told me the same thing, but also suggested Safe could be persuaded to include the changes in a future 2012 Service Pack if I made a good enough argument. I'm working on it...

comment Large Open Street Map OSM file to Shapefile. Is there any hope for 32-bit FME?
@Mapperz I'm generally not a shirt-and-tie guy so I'll assume you mean caveats :) FME 2013 dealt with all 40,000,000 features in my dataset and memory peaked around 600 MB. I watched my C drive space slowly decrease but in the end I think it only used about 1 GB.

comment Large Open Street Map OSM file to Shapefile. Is there any hope for 32-bit FME?
I tried reading OSM and writing straight out into another format using FME and turning off all the options that would use grouping under the covers (e.g. build areas from lines). It still ran out of memory - it all happens during the XML parsing stage. I have plenty of temp space on my machine and the disk is not being filled, so FME is definitely giving up when a memory limit is reached and is not off-loading memory requirements to disk. If I was able to get the raw data into a database I think I would still have problems as a single category (highway) makes up so much of the data

I downloaded the beta and so far it is doing much better - FME has already read-in 6,000,000 features and memory usage is hovering around 130 MB. The product I'm testing this for is scheduled to go live around October 2012 so hopefully I will be able to get a stable copy of FME 2013 by then.

comment Large Open Street Map OSM file to Shapefile. Is there any hope for 32-bit FME?
I have to check later as I don't have access to the db right now, but I assume not - I think the db schema very closely minics the XML format which doesn't provide any grouping. When classifying features in the way I described FME gives the option of default, very broad, or very narrow categories. I think this means that somewhere buried in FME there are 3 definitions of FME-specific OSM categories and a set of rules which group features into them. If I could find these rules I might be able to use them against the db schema, but I'm working on a number of assumptions here.
