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

Hi! I'm using a php script to get node, way and rel from osm. This script use this url:

$url = 'http://overpass-api.de/api/interpreter?data=[out:json];(%20node%20[%22historic%22]%20('.$coo['min_lat'].','.$coo['min_lon'].','.$coo['max_lat'].','.$coo['max_lon'].');%20way%20[%22historic%22]%20('.$coo['min_lat'].','.$coo['min_lon'].','.$coo['max_lat'].','.$coo['max_lon'].');%20rel%20[%22historic%22]%20('.$coo['min_lat'].','.$coo['min_lon'].','.$coo['max_lat'].','.$coo['max_lon'].');%20);%20(._;%3E;);%20out;';

Now I would to add some tag and not only historic. Can I use a single url or have I to create a query for each tag I need? Thanks, Mk

You can combine as many queries as you want in a union:


Here's an Overpass Turbo Wizard generated example:


Also, note the "raw data directly from Overpass API" option in the Export dialog. You can use Overpass Turbo to test out queries and then quickly get the query as a url.

mmm ... ok so my $url become

        $url = 'http://overpass-api.de/api/interpreter?data=[out:json];('.

now, is it possibile so specify ('.$coo['min_lat'].','.$coo['min_lon'].','.$coo['max_lat'].','.$coo['max_lon'].') only time, maybe at the end url? Thanks!
