I see that overpass turbo works quite good in running queries.
However the main objective here is to do OSM data filtering from a given default url base say (http://overpass-api.de/api/interpreter) and then passing a string query at run time to get only desired data in the XMLStream.
A short example for query string would be to specify:
bounding box and then tag filters or node filters and then only get the sorted osm file loaded in the InputStreamreader of a JavaClass.
I do not see that the overpass turbo returns the filtered osm rather it just points out the query terms in the map. I am currently working with OSMFilter but there I want to specify an XSD file for the query language used by http://overpass-api.de/api/interpreter. But as you said there exists no XSD for the QL. So I need to either write an XSD for the query language myself or try some other url along with querying options for openstreet map (with also xsd file).
I’m really not clear on what you need the XSD for. Can you elaborate a bit on that? OSMFilter has no way to deal with XSD files at all.
Are you maybe trying to follow some guide you found on the web? If so, can you please post that as well?
I will explain you the workflow for our current project.
We need to have XSD for OSM query language and then combine this along with the “openstreet map query” to get a combined XML with data and further apply XSLT transformation to get the apt. OSM query language.
Also, I would like to make one correction, We are using OSM2WORLD for this purpose.
I’m really struggling with the following statement:
It would be good, if you could refer to commonly used terminology, or at least clearly indicate which terms you introduced on your own… e.g. there’s really no such thing as “OSM query language” in general OSM-lingo.
Also, if possible please try to explain your ideas in a more natural language. I found it very hard to figure out what you’re trying to do, as you provide little to no overall context.
Something like "We want to have a 3D view of OpenStreetMap, but want to limit our view to certain kinds of buildings, … we looked at OSM2World, … We thought about some new language to faciliate xyz " or the like.
As I’m running out of ideas, maybe someone else can fill in here…
