  Description     : Fast and flexible C++ library for working with OpenStreetMap data

The Osmium Library has extensive support for all types of OSM entities: nodes,
ways, relations, and changesets. It allows reading from and writing to OSM
files in XML and PBF formats, including change files and full history files.
Osmium can store OSM data in memory and on disk in various formats and using
various indexes. Its easy to use handler interface allows you to quickly write
data filtering and conversion functions. Osmium can create WKT, WKB, OGR, GEOS
and GeoJSON geometries for easy conversion into many GIS formats and it can
assemble multipolygons from ways and relations.

Osmium is a header-only library, so there is nothing to compile to build it.
Just include the header files you need.

This package is part of the new Osmium family superseding the existing osmium
source package. The new Osmium family consists of libosmium,
node-osmium, pyosmium, osmium, osmium-contrib & osmcoastline.

The packages for the Osmium family will be maintained in the Debian GIS team.
