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

Hello everyone, I have a list of ways and I'd like to get the whole objects (ways with their nodes and coordinates). This operation, if I'm not wrong, should be done with osmium add-locations-to-ways

I can't figure out the right syntax, while I expect to have a list of ways (or an xml file), an extract containing all the geometries needed (e.g. a whole country), and an output file.

In the manual https://docs.osmcode.org/osmium/latest/osmium-add-locations-to-ways.html there are two examples, but I'm a bit confused as just two (instead of 3) file OSM are used.

Thank you, Alessandro

I think you might be after the "osmium getid" command where, from a full OSM data file, you can extract a list of ways which are given by their IDs, and if desired you can extract the required nodes too. -- The add-locations-to-ways thing only means that the node coordinates will be folded into the way object, but still the node information needed for this must be present in the same input file as the ways.

Hello Frederik, thanks so much for your kind and prompt reply.

Yes, I've run the osmium getid command, but reading the command name add-locations-to-ways I shifted my focus on the latter command.

Reading again the osmium getid help, I realized I missed the recursive -r option.

So, running the command "osmium getid -r -f xml somalia-latest.osm.pbf w128441129 -o way-with-nodes.osm" I've got back the full way with its nodes.

Thank you, Alessandro
