The osm2shp application is now updated so that one column in the dbf file is created for each tag in the input OSM data.
This does raise a question. The generated dbf files seem quite large, as there are a large number of columns which are redundant for most data. However, this might not matter too much as the .dbf can be compressed to a fraction of the size. The alternative would be to define a set of standard POI types with mappings to OSM tags. What do people think are best?
