So I have downloaded the file for Berlin from http://download.geofabrik.de/europe/germany.html
and have extracted it to
And want to preprocess it for my usage and for that I want for every possible tile all data relevant for graphical output in single files.
What's the logic for extracting?
Is there a good open source software, except those using Java?
Is software usingt the .pbf files faster because of the file format better processable?
