BBOX.ME (OSM to Google Earth) via FME
Left toolbar highlight large data download - red (large) amber medium and green is small data.
(OSM Servers will restrict large downloads automatically)

Take OpenStreetMap and via it's API, users can download an area of interest.

in this case:

"http:\\api.openstreetmap.org\api\0.6\map?bbox=-0.4994028225856829,53.73689294256218,-0.4839962145221512,53.74135397370099"

is requested from the OSM server via the OSM API.

This does use FME Desktop (a 30 day trail is available) which can convert the OSM files into Google Earth

Somebody must write osm to google maps v5 vector converter with 'height' and 'building:level' , so all osm will be in offline with fastest render engine from google.

Realy, realy a good Solution to Extrakt OSM with FME without using geofabrik or cloudmade. it is Easy to handle. I think there is only One possibility to use a bitter extent with the xapi, isn't it? Good Job Ulf.
