OpenStreetMap

Hello World.

So much has changed in OpenStreetMap. Wow!

In my process of learning more, I start a map that locates artworks or cultural monuments you may enjoy while driving through the roundabouts of this beautiful island Mallorca.

Why thinking of artwork in roundabouts?

As we pass by, we miss quite often the chance to learn more about the piece decorating the roundabout (and preventing you from crossing this area the shortest way).

My interest was triggered when we passed the roundabout near Santa Margalida. A huge red devil, made from metal, chained in the middle, seemed to be somewhat disappointed… I needed find out more about this!

Seems like fun. I’ve often thought we should pay more attention to adding tourism=artwork stuff in general. Worldwide there’s probably quite a few bits of artwork mapped within roundabouts already. It should be possible to find them and show them all on a map i.e. find all the tourism=artwork nodes located within junction=roundabout areas. Who can show us how to do that in OverpassAPI?
