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

Hi there,

I am trying to get all waterways in a specific area like a postcode area as a shapefile. So I know how to get waterways via overpass api and I know how to get waterways in an specific Box which consists out of Coordinates. But is there any possibility to get what I need?

All help is appreciated :)

There's an example within Overpass-turbo: click "Load", then "Examples" and take the "mountains in area" example. direct link You can tweak this to for example geocode a name of a country or the name of an admin_level=7 item.
