Welcome to osm2city’s documentation!

While the article on FlightGear’s Wiki presents in general terms what osm2city is and what features it has, this manual goes into depth with many aspects of generating scenery objects based on OpenStreetMap (OSM) data and deploying/using them in FlightGear.

Before you generate your own sceneries, you might want to get familiar with the output of osm2city by first deploying some of the downloadable osm2city sceneries and have a look at chapter Using Generated Scenery. See amongst others Areas populated with osm2city scenery or look for announcements in the Sceneries part of the FlightGear Forums.

User in the context of this guide means the end user in FlightGear using osm2city generated sceneries. Developer means a person using osm2city to generate a scenery.
