I wonder if someone can clarify as I'm confused.
I need to load planet OSM data into PostGIS so I downloaded a small data set of a UK County and followed the instructions here loading the Google Mercator projection 900931.sql first.
looking at the data in GeoServer the co-ordinate readout on the location bar appears to be in metric East / West and not Longitude/Latitude yet the osm wiki states World Geodetic System 1984 is the coordinate system of OSM data.
What am I doing wrong?
Also is there a best practice for displaying OSM as a base layer?
Where can I get a Point.sld from?
