In this talk various Julia packages for processing spatial data coming from the Open Street Map (OSM) project will be presented. OSM is an excellent source of information about road system that can be explored by tools such as OpenStreetMapX.jl However, the OSM files also contain useful information points interests (restaurants, hotels, schools, stores etc.) that can be extracted and analyzed in Julia.
