Total newb how to modify this query to get all the available postcode nodes for France in http://overpass-turbo.eu/ . I'm mostly interested in just getting the json returned (if possible).
...I am mostly interested in just getting the lat/long (point location) of all available 'addr:postcode' tags....is that plausible to do without querying for the relations (or will I miss nodes in the process if I do NOT query the relations?
So you are looking for all nodes in France whose address information include a postcode ?
The query is http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/oxp but you will need a much longer timeout.
I cannot speak for France, but e.g. in Flanders, we attempt to not map the postal code on individual nodes. We prefer to use postal code relations.
I also do not know how may of the addresses are mapped as nodes in France. Perhaps addresses are also mapped on ways. So be prepared to end up with a large collection of nodes that do not represent anything at all, because data is mapped in another way.
