    Hi,

    I would like to use the natural earth data for rendering the map and I would like to know whether it is possible to update the natural earth dataset from the OpenStreetMap (OSM).

    Are these datasets correlated at all? Is Natural Earth derived from the OSM data?

    If so, are there any tools I could use to take the diff OSM file and apply these changes to the natural earth dataset?

    Thank you!

    @Dennisk: Can you provide specific examples of your desired data correlations? I’m not quite following you. Natural Earth is good for zooms 0 to 8. OSM is more zoom 12 to 19. The midzooms between are a free for all. No, Natural Earth is not made from OSM, but complements it.
