Download object

source:/trunk/images/downloadprimitive.png Keyboard shortcut: CTRL-SHIFT-O

Load an OSM object (node, way or relation) from the OSM API server either in the current data layer or in a new data layer. The downloaded data will contain the way nodes for ways and optionally any referrers (ways or relations that reference the downloaded object). Note: Only the referrers of the downloaded object itself are downloaded, not the referrers for any of its children (way nodes).

The following dialog is displayed:

You can choose the type of object to download and enter its ID and click Download object.

You can choose whether or not any referrers are to be downloaded:

  • if Download referrers is selected, any referring objects are downloaded
  • if Download referrers is not selected, no referrers are downloaded

You can control whether the data is loaded into the current or in a new layer:

  • if Separate layer is selected, the data is loaded into a new layer
  • if Separate layer is not selected, the data is merged into the current data layer

If there isn't a data layer yet, a new data layer is always created.

Data source

The OSM API server specified in Connection Settings is the data source used here.
