OpenStreetMap overlay example

Tag: toolbox

The problem

OpenStreetMap is a great resource and there is a lot more information stored there than you can easily see.

The solution

Go to and enter a filter script similar to the following :

  <query type="node">
    <has-kv k="amenity" v="recycling"/>
    <bbox-query {{bbox}}/>
  <!-- print results -->
  <print mode="body"/>

This example will highlight the recycling points near a target location. From there you can build almost any filter you can think of!
