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

A short question: I would like to extract all ways that are included in a set consisting of both ways and relations. How can I do that?

Assume the set is called "x", then, I tried:

  • way(w.x);
  • way(.x);

all without success because recurse is not defined for way-way and a bit overkill. Feels like there must be a simple solution, I just cannot see it ;)

Thanks for a hint!

Sorry, it is explained in the wiki:

"To read elements from a set, append . and the set name to the command.


will return all nodes in the named set a that have the key amenity with the value foo."

So, in my case, it boild down to: node.x;
