[demo] Emojis in overpass turbo!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Posted by mmd on 7 January 2017 in English (English)

Emojis are only a fingertip away on your iPhoneโ€ฆ it was only a matter of time until they show up on OSM as well. The following query finds all those emojis - worldwide: http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/l6r

Thanks to tyr_asd for the MapCSS enhanced version below

A bit more serious: how about searching for mixed language names like name=Vinh-Loi Asien-Supermarkt ๆฆฎๅˆฉๅธ‚ๅ ด : check out the following query! http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/l6s

Do you find regular expressions with full Unicode support useful and want to see them in one of the next official Overpass API releases? Itโ€™s your turn now, vote for it on Github or leave a comment here!
