I have a osm map for a certain region. Also using osm2po I extracted the graph which includes edges and nodes into the database. Now I want to visualize the map and then visualize the shortest path. How can I visualize the map in QGIS first? I mean it doesn't directly take the osm file? How can I accomplish this?

Try the OpenStreetMap Python plugin that ships with QGIS.

Choose the Plugins-> Manage Plugins... menu and enable the plugin.

Next, read the new HTML manual on using the plugin:
