Hello,

As a low-fi backup for my smarphone that I use as GPS during bike trips, I'm thinking of printing it on a single page to have a rough idea where I should head using a compass, and run a script that will 1) take the (simplfied down to 500 points) trip as input, 2) query OSM for all the towns and cities along the way, and 3) output the list that I'll then use as a road book.

Provided Overpass won't complain with too many queries, would someone have some code to share (ideally Python)?

Thank you.


Edit: The following query looks close to what I need. Is it the right way to find the city/town a point lives in?

//How to also search for _nodes_ in just one query?

way["place"~"(city|town)"](around:500,50.540853270068986,8.048780365649707,50.53106288705902,8.030823236553783);

(._;>;);

out meta;
