Overpass API


The Overpass API is a read-only API to access OSM data. It provides permanent IDs to OSM objects that can serve as a replacement to create the missing permalinks:

To make linking easy when creating the wiki page, that link is encapsulated in a template. In the wiki page, just write {{DisplayRoute|network=BAB|ref=A 555}}. If you want to describe a route identified by network and ref, you can just fill the template with the values of your object.

One general advice: If you create any new templates on this wiki, suitable for Overpass Queries, please include them in the category Category:Overpass API/Templates so that people can find them and make use of them.
