Overpass Turbo

Overpass Turbo is a nifty OpenStreetMap server which allows interactive experimentation with map filtering, display formats, etc.


This should produce a skeletal map of a neighborhood near UT Austin, showing only roads (i.e., no buildings) as unlabeled, fixed width lines:

  • In Settings > Map:
    • Set "Tiles Opacity" to 0.
    • Set "Don't display small features as POIs."

  • Enter an address (e.g., "26th and Guadalupe, Austin, TX, USA").

  • In the left-hand (code) area, enter:
      way[highway]({{bbox}}); out; >; out skel;

  • Click the "Run" button.

Here's a screenshot:
