exporting large maps into XLM

hello. sorry if this has been asked but i couldnt find an answer…

i’m trying to export an area of australia, namely city of Perth. i set my map scale to 5km/2mi, and the XML radial button becomes enabled. i then hit export, however, the download dialog never came up. i was just taken to a page with nothing on it.

now, if i zoom in one more level, i can successfully export XML data. is this a limitation of the service or is this something i should be able to do?

thanks in advance.

Yes it’s a limitation on the server, it’s too much data for one request, you can try to do it by splitting up the download, or by using the openstreetmap extended api: “xapi”.
