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


I uploaded bunch of GPX traces using batch upload but I accidentally left visibility to PUBLIC instead of IDENTIFIABLE. I would like to use API to fix it, but I found nothing there about updating the metadata. I can do it on the webpage, but the list is too long. Is there some API-like way to do it?

Yes, you can update the metadata of the GPX trace via the API. Simply PUT the new details to api/0.6/gpx/[id of trace]. If you need to see the format of the XML required to do this, GET the same URL first.

To get a list of all the traces that you have uploaded already, then GET /api/0.6/user/gpx_files
