network configuration file not working

Aug 21, 2012 at 2:43 PM

I have created a feature dataset with an osm file, I downloaded from geofabrik. Now I first wanted to use osm2nds from 52north but after 3 days of not getting it to work, I gave up and downloaded the editor.

But once I use the osm network dataset tool from the new beta, and integrate the motorcar parameters I downloaded from here:

http://52north.org/communities/geoprocessing/osm2nds/configuration.html

I get an error saying that the parameters in line 2 char 2 is not declared. Hope that somebody can help me with this? Or maybe has an idea where I can get a network configuration file? Or a good tut on how to do it myself?

Hello cyaegha,

The configuration files that come with the OSM2NDS tool will not work with the ArcGIS Editor for OSM 'Create Network Dataset' tool - their XML schemas are different.  You can get a configuration file compatible with the tool from this location: http://www.codeplex.com/Download?ProjectName=esriosmeditor&DownloadId=462970  

Also - we do have a workflow for using the Network Dataset Tool. See this wiki topic: http://esriosmeditor.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Create%20a%20Network%20Dataset%20from%20OSM%20Data

Keep us posted on if this helps.
