How to extract street names from OSM data

Paul Zagoridis

Can I use the API or some other easy way to extract a subset of OSM data?

 

Specifically I want to get a list of street names in Sydney Metro to double check addresses in a database.

 

Suggestions?

 

Regards

 

Paul

This is probably what you want in this case:

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/OSM_Protocol_Version_0.5#Retrieving_all_objects_in_a_bounding_box

You can also get it by selecting from the map. In case you don't know, after
zooming in, turn on the data layer/overlay (available from the top right hand
side expanding menu), then in the "frame" on the left, refine your area (can be
drawn). When you have your bounding right, you'll see a hyperlink to "API" at
the bottom of all the object names. It should give you the same XML output you
get from the API.

Hope that's what you were after.

Cheers
