I have an application that retrieves small areas of map data via the Overpass API to generate custom-rendered maps of interest. However, if the area of interest is completely inside certain relations (e.g. in one case, a multipolygon of natural = heath), this relation is not returned by the bbox query and therefore the landuse is not tagged appropriately. I understand that simple areas (closed ways) and named relations can be retrieved using an "is_in" query - but how can I retrieve unnamed relations such as the example above? Thanks!

Could you post the routine?

My usual query is:

node(53.113093987353764,-4.054470062255859,53.11925273065562,-4.040318727493286);<;>;

I've also tried to union that with an is_in query (after extracting the nodes from the area):

is_in(53.115,-4.05);

Neither find this relation:
