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


We try to tune the rendering of admin_level data in OSM Carto:


but we need some stats about specific admin level distribution in the world (it's important for us to have global data, since rendering on OSMF servers covers the whole planet). How could we create a spreadsheet showing the size (area) or length of each admin level polygons? Unfortunately I'm not a coder.

Probably PBF analysis would be more convenient and versatile, but maybe a script using PostgreSQL/PostGIS features might be easier to write. I guess Overpass online is too limited for such queries, since many times I get errors about too much used memory, but maybe I'm wrong.
