I am struggling to get the correct order of nodes out of an Overpass query.
I am aware of this similar question How do you get the nodes of an area in Overpass API in the "right" order? but I am not sure if I understand the solution hinted there. I wish the text was a bit more explicit how this is solved in the end.
Let's for example use way ID 35565161: http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/35565161#map=15/49.3949/4.0426 http://api.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/way/35565161
What I found is that running my query "api/interpreter?data=way(35565161);>;out body;" does not return the nodes in the correct order.
I think I understand the answer to the question linked above that I have to first run a query on the way to get the order of nodes, then run another query on the node details to get the node coordinates.
With those two available iterate over the way, referencing the detail results from the second.
That seems a bit too much work - I guess there is an easier way to do this in one query?
