[OSM-dev] OSM 2 Oracle

For this particular purpose, I don't want to build any mapping service on top of the Oracle database. This database will be used to do validation analysis and quality measures, using a tool that works with Oracle data only. The required set is a reduced one. The minimum set may include id, name, type and geometery and some node tags for each layer.

(It isn't surprising that there would be far worse support for
proprietary databases, as few people are in a position to use them.)
I would guess that the interfaces to Oracle Spatial are not so different

various tools that load into postgis (in support of mapnik rendering)
without extreme effort.
Are you trying to store the entire dataset in the schema used by the
rails port, or the schema used by mapnik, or a reduced set for your
analysis, or ?
