OSM data update


#1

How often is OSM data updated for ORS?
It would be nice if the ORS App could show you how up-to-date the data is.


#2

We did an update last week on all profiles. And going forward (in 2-4 weeks) we’ll be able to update weekly again!

You’re right, that’d be nice. We’ll try to integrate that info into our new app, which will launch in a few months.

If you need to know: Send an example request on our playground (you need an API key for that), in the response there’s a field called metadata which has the property engine.build_date, which is +/- a few days the date of the OSM dump. Be aware though, that each profile might be built at different dates.

Thx this will help for my osm data testing for ors :slight_smile:

@nils seems like this not true in every case or there went something wrong with the build on
2019-05-29T14:22:56Z.

Here is an example request which is routing across the area mentioned in Over a month to update map from OSM

https://api.openrouteservice.org/v2/directions/driving-car?api_key=[enter-key-here]&start=16.334095,%2039.316022&end=16.342463,%2039.305961

The response gives:
Auswahl_598

The change was made on 2019-04-02:

But the route is calculated like this:

Was the profile built on 2019-05-29 not using an up-to-date OSM dump?

For comparison the calculated route with GH from openstreetmap.org:

The above case is now solved using the graph with build_date: "2019-09-20T13:57:05Z".
