When trying to download OSM data in QGIS 2.8 I am using a layer to provide the extend for the requested data. The extend basically covers all the countries that share coast line of the Baltic sea (Russia only a small bit).
Now when I start the download process the process always fails with: Network request http://overpass-api.de/api/interpreter?data=(node(47.2701,5.86667,70.0924,41.3899);<;);out; time out
- is the extend to big?
- is the amount of data requested to big?
- is there an error in the network request?
- is the function faulty in QGIS 2.8?
- is there another way to extract OSM data, based on a given spatial extent?
