I'm building an application which will display maps via OSM and I'll need to be able to reference a couple of countries and cities from within my app.
Assume these are:
- Italy https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/365331
- Rome (capital of Italy): https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/41485
- Greece: https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/192307
- Athens (capital of Greece): https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/441183
Can I assume that those types + ids (e.g Italy is a relation with id 365331 and Athens is node with id 441183) will never change in OSM?
Or should I base my application on long/lat for those places which will, obviously, never change?
