       osmcoastline_segments - analyze OpenStreetMap coastline changes from segment files


       osmcoastline_segments [OPTIONS] SEGMENT-FILE1 SEGMENT-FILE2


       The  osmcoastline  program  can  write out all segments of the coastline into a file (when
       started with the -S, –write-segments=FILE option).  This program can be  used  to  compare
       two  of  those segment files in various ways to detect coastline changes between different
       runs of the osmcoastline program.


       -h, –help
              Display usage information.

       -d, –dump
              Dump segment list to stdout in plain text format.

       -g, –geom=FILENAME
              Write segments to geometry file or database using OGR.

       -f, –format=FORMAT
              OGR format for writing out geometries.

       -V, –version
              Display program version and license information.


       osmcoastline_segments exits with exit code

       0      if the segment files are the same

       1      if the segment files are different

       3      if there was a fatal error when running the program

       4      if there was a problem with the command line arguments.


       Just return 0 or 1 depending on whether the segments are the same in both files:

              osmcoastline_segments old.segments new.segments

       Dump the list of removed and added segments to stdout:

              osmcoastline_segments --dump old.segments new.segments

       Create a shapefile with the differences:

              osmcoastline_segments --geom=diff.shp old.segments new.segments
