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

I'm trying to query the Great Lakes in overpass using the id (http://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/1124369)...is this plausible?

Here is what I have so far.


(   relation["name"="Great Lakes"][ref=1124369];   way(r);   node(w); );

out skel qt;

To query by OSM id, do something like rel(1124369);

Once you have that object you need to use the recurse down relations operator:


It's about 90 megabytes of data.
