A recent UI change has removed the old "export" tab. Currently, the link is now in the left-hand side bar under the "Data" heading. Or go directly to "Export Data".

Hi Frederik,

Thanks for your early reply. As shown in the attached screendump (1) the link under "Data" heading does not generate any option to select an export format,amongst others the XML format which expect to use in Maperitive.

The same action as by clicking the (old) export button happens: opening the weblink in Chrome / Firefox. Nothing happens further on.

Can you advise an other remedy?

Thanks in advance. Peter

@Goudkust: Which "format" at you looking for? And for the non-responding page: did you try a very small (zoom in) part? Same result?

The area shown in the picture is quite large. Thus you should rather use a read-only mirror. Replace in the URL by

Both requests give the same data, but the latter is usually faster.
