The CACI solution is a “conversion engine” which takes as input a raw OSM XML (.osm file extension) data file and outputs a file geodatabase. With this solution there is no need to rely on secondary intermediate formats and schemas controlled by entities outside the US Government as it allows one to work with the full, complete and up-to-date actual OSM data in its native format. However, the real power of this solution is that the exact way the conversion takes place can be completely controlled by the user by editing, or specifying an existing, Python based file. The “heavy lifting” of the conversion is done by the conversion engine, while the user can control the feature class where an OSM feature belongs, and how attribution is set.
