Sorry, I'll post to the user list next time.<br>One last question, on the cloudemade links you both provided, what do the different formats mean?<br><ul class="select_map"><li>

  I'm trying to get an OSM xml file for Seattle however whenever I try<br>
  requesting it from OpenStreetMap.org's "Export" tab it says that the request<br>
  is too big. I don't want to use planet.osm because that's far too large for<br>
  the application I need. Any suggestions?<br>
<br>
  The corner coordinates I'm looking are between:<br>
  47.979, -122.686<br>
  47.346, -121.522<br>
<br>
</div></div>Cloudmade has extracts by state, which are pretty manageable:<br>

<br>
</div>you can then use osmsosis to shrink it if it isn't small enough.<br>
