Notice to OSM: The OSM format can contain a large tree of nested tags. As a result, The OSM driver creates own attribute for each branch of the tree.
The OSM format is specific to OpenStreetMap. The OpenStreetMap project maintains a free database of the world's streets.
A JPEG is a type of image format that is saved using the method of lossy compression. The output image, as result of compression, is a trade-off between storage size and image quality.
