I've been reading up on Overpass syntax and I think I get the basics. For example, let's say I want to get the IDs and coordinates of every town in Andorra that OSM has a record of:
This is great for keeping the data stream light -- say, if you're targeting smartphones and are trying to be conscious of data plan costs.
Now, what if I just want to get the "name" tag of each of these towns in addition to the ID and center? I know how to get all of the tags -- just add " tags" right before the final semicolon -- but that gives me a whole bunch of tags I don't want and a bloaty data stream.
Does anyone know whether/how one can selectively include tags in the Overpass output stream?
That is, not filtering nodes by tag but rather filtering tags by tag name.
