Hi OSMappers,

I'm using overpass to get all the suburbs of a city. I can do it by setting this option:

area[name="CITY NAME"]

but what I want to is to get the infos by the ID of the city instead. Is it possible to do something like this?

area[id="CITY ID"]

This is my actual url:

http://MY-URL.com/api/interpreter?data=[out:csv(::type,"place",::id,"name",::lat,::lon)];area[name="CITY NAME"][admin_level=8][boundary=administrative]->.RESULTS;rel(pivot.RESULTS);node[place="suburb"](area.RESULTS);out;

Thanks in advance!

If by city id you mean an OSM id for an object representing a city, there is a mapping between OSM ids and Overpass areas. There is decent discussion of how it works in the documentation: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_API/Overpass_QL#By_area_.28area.29
