A small script that wraps around the overpass-api to return geojson instead of the custom overpass json format for easier use in applications.


The live instance can be found at

An example query could look like this:


When posting to the default overpass api you can either send an url-encoded body with a data= prefix or just send a plain query in the body. This service only supports the latter so please do not add the data= prefix.

⚠️ Note: The service expects json data from overpass so you must include [output:json] in your query.
