Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


I have sent this query to get relations. The server response give me the relations but not the nodes used in this relation.

My query is : http://overpass.osm.rambler.ru/cgi/xapi?relation[type=enforcement][bbox=-5.9,42.3,9,51]

I want with the relations, the node associated with this relations, not all the node !

what can I add to my query as to have the nodes description ? Where is my mistake ?

Best Regards Michel

It's not really clear what you want, maybe you can ask the question in your own language.

I believe the response I got from that was relevant to the query. (All relations within bbox of type enforcement). I got the nodes related to the relations.

To get the relations only, the query


is fine. If you want something else, you should use Overpass QL to formulate what you want exactly.

Relations only (again):


Relations and only nodes that are members:


Relations and the node and way members and the nodes belonging to the way members


Or if you want to process the data with JOSM or Osmosis, you need meta data. Replace out; by out meta;

http://overpass.osm.rambler.ru/cgi/interpreter?data=(rel[type=enforcement](42.3,-5.9,51,9);>;);out meta;

In case your browser has difficulties with spaces in URL:


Caution: these queries may take some minutes.
