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

I am new to Maps.

I have selected an area in the map and I have exported .osm file which contains latitude and longitude of all the nodes in that area. My task is to create a boundary line for that area.

Only thing i know is I need to create boundary using coordinates(latitude and longitude)

Which Api should I use?

Note : I am using html,javascript and python language. Can someone share your knowledge on this

Can you be a bit more specific what you mean by "boundary line for that area". Is this the same as a bounding box?

Depending on your download option, this information would already be included in your file:

<bounds minlat="47.6645" minlon="9.21153" maxlat="47.6699" maxlon="9.22442"/>
