#10947 closed defect (fixed)

"No data found in this area." message when Overpass query times out

Reported by: bastiK Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone: 15.09
Component: Core Version:
Keywords: mirrored_download Cc:


When making the following request in "Download from Overpass API":

out meta;

I get a popup message "No data found in this area."

However, I see that the request timed out (wireshark):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<osm version="0.6" generator="Overpass API">
<note>The data included in this document is from The data is made available under ODbL.</note>
<meta osm_base="2015-01-07T23:38:02Z" areas="2015-01-07T10:31:02Z"/>

  <bounds minlat="38.9013" minlon="-17.8052" maxlat="61.7253" maxlon="38.1959"/>

<remark> runtime error: Query timed out in "query" at line 3 after 31 seconds. </remark>


I would prefer if this message was parsed and displayed in a message window or at least on the command line.

In Overpass turbo, this request finishes within a minute:


This is what JOSM sends (increasing the timeout to 130 seconds still fails):,38.2664307,39.4348281,62.1076115

How can I get rid of the bbox stuff (in case it causes the problems)?

Bascially by passing the query to the standard "File > Open location ..." dialogue. The bbox comes from the bbox selector and can currently not be turned off.

Detect "runtime error" in the <remark> element of the returned XML.
