Export pecial objects from OSM

Hello everybody,

I am new to OSM and have a question. I would like to export special objects with all existing information from OSM and import them into ArcGIS. Specifically, my question deals about objects with the tag: railway = switch. Can someone explain to me how I can export all objects with this tag and their properties in a certain area?

Many Thanks,


Hi, I have no experience that would help with importing OSM data into ArcGIS, but for obtaining objects with a particular tag from OSM, the Overpass API and specifically the “Overpass Turbo” frontend work well.

Example query for railway=switch within a bounding box.
