QGIS 2.0 uses overpass to query osm data. I want to make customized queries like only buildings or only roads or both. And i only want the geometry so i'll go for skel mode in overpass. I may also need to set the timeout options for large data.

How can i make these custom queries from qgis?


In case of someone is looking for this answer nowadays, you can use the QuickOSM plugin from the repository.

Unfortunately, I think that it's not possible to make specific query from qgis. Maybe you can use overpass turbo which allows you to export data in many formats .
