I am aware of the great QGIS plugin QuickOSM to download OSM features into QGIS, and I know that QGIS supports importing a
.osm file that was downloaded from an exported view like this one, however: how does one import a single OSM feature exported as XML?
- Go to an OSM feature, e.g.: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/23922428
- Click on "Download XML", which is the same as using this link: https://www.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/way/23922428
- Try to import into QGIS
Using QGIS 3.16 on Ubuntu 18.04, the import dialogue asks me what kind of features I want to import, but they are all empty once in the project. I tried using the extensions
.osm on the file, but it didn't help.
Any idea what might be going wrong here?
