What is OSM file?

The OpenStreetMap or .OSM files are used to store geographic data. The .OSM files are created to share the geographic data easily across the internet. It is a standard format for share geographic files across the internet. The file with .OSM extension is coded in XML. These files store the geographic data in an ordered and structured format. It requires special tools to open the .OSM files. 

Programs that support OSM file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the OSM file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the OSM file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the OSM file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the OSM file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the OSM file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the OSM file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
