I wanted to export the graphical outline of a river in OpenStreetMap. I tried using the Overpass Turbo.

This is the script I used:

out geom;

I get the map on the right side of the terminal:

enter image description here

But when I goto export it in the Export tab and click png I get a very off output.

How to fix that?

I would like to download the geoJSON or some sort of data format and fire it up in a GIS software, still this is not accurate enough.

Export the data as GeoJSON and use it as a layer in QGIS, like:

Overpass data exported as GeoJSON over OpenTopoMap

then export it as a png or whatever Project -> New Print Layout..
