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


I want to download load some OSM data which indicates personalized walking routes. They're not linear (think of it like a spiders web) nor are there any unifying tags, so it's difficult to use Overpass API.

I'm aware of tracing webpages such as uMap, but that's laborious & not very accurate. Ideally I'd like to have a rendering of the map where I could click on each way I require which then gets stored so all the data can be downloaded once they're all selected.

Is there such a program?

In an attempt to answer my own question I tried JOSM for a solution. If there's a way to export selected (highlighted red) ways then it's keeping it well hid. Is JOSM able to do this?

I think copying the selection to a new layer would do it.

Ah, of course. I'm not a frequent JOSM user but I should of remembered that. Thanks.
