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

I'm querying water in a 5 km radius of Paris city centre and was expecting the Seine to show up in its entirety; however, it's only showing in part as a polygon?

What am I doing wrong, please?


nwr["natural"~"water"] (around:5000, 48.8693488, 2.319511); 
out meta;
>; out skel qt;

I do query the using 'river' separately but I really want the polygon and not the line!

Please have a look at the wiki on different ways to tag rivers. The Seine to the East of your selection is tagged as waterway=riverbank.

Thank you!

I have that in my separate river query - however, I only get a polyline back in my output. Is there no way to get a multi-polygon instead, please?

Well you get the objects back that are in the database. If you want to join them or whatever it is you hope to get out of a multi-polygon you have to do some post-processing afterwards.

Maybe you describe a bit better what it is you try to achieve if I missed something.
