I want to cut extracts from planet.osm.bz2 . I have found this command
bzcat downloaded.osm.bz2 | osmosis --read-xml enableDateParsing=no file=- --bounding-box top=49.5138 left=10.9351 bottom=49.3866 right=11.201 --write-xml file=- | bzip2 > extracted.osm.bz2
Only concern I have the disc space. planet.osm uncompressed is 400GB!
How much space would use this command from WIKI?
