Maintain an own local dataset whith local attributes while keeping it in sync with OpenStreetMap (OSM)

This plugin allows a user to maintain an own local spatial vector dataset, which is strongly related to OpenStreetMap (OSM), while keeping it in sync with OSM. The dataset is being defined as an Overpass query and the dataset can contain additional, local features and features can contain additional attributes.

The plugin has two main functions:

  • Iterate forth and back through the features of the layer (similar to Go2NextFeature).
  • Synchronize the local dataset with OSM data on user demand, which means, that it flags updated and deleted features and that it downloads new features.


The plugin requires a simple configuration (.osmds) which is a sidecar file to the local dataset (e.g. a GeoPackage) and uses an Overpass API to retrieve the OSM data.
