I managed to write a query which extracts all windfarms:

{{geocodeArea:"Bad Gandersheim"}}; 
{{geocodeArea:"Rotenburg (Wümme)"}};

out meta;

The Problem is, that some of the administrative regions have the sam e Name as a City in this Region. Unfortunately overpass takes the name of the city instead of the region, so that only the wind farms in the City are selected.

Is there a way I can make clear, that I am searching for the Region and not for a single City?

  • Easier method, yet with some gaps in the data: get the excel from bundesnetzagentur.de/DE/Sachgebiete/ElektrizitaetundGas/…, save it as csv and import it. – Erik Feb 8 '19 at 9:41
  • Thank you, I am beware of this method, but I am trying it to do it with overpass :) – Hannes Feb 8 '19 at 10:01
  • Since there are not that many wind turbines, you could limit the data types you want to receive to "point" and then do the whole state? For Mecklenburg it worked. – Erik Feb 8 '19 at 10:19
