Tyler, Mhairi – marvellous, many thanks for the quick follow-up.

Soren - many thanks, too. About Geofabrik: it provides a great service; the limitation in this case is that includes only the 'name' tag, and not the various different language tags of place names (as a totally random example, see the tags at http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/286653976).

Best wishes -

Hi Nick,

I discussed this in the morning with our product manager Mhairi (cc'd) and we are adding Greece. Mhairi will let you know once it's done.

Thanks for the compliment on the tool!

Hi All –
I was trying an export for the eastern Mediterranean area (where MapAction volunteers are deployed, supporting UNHCR), but found it was outside the ‘valid export region’. Is there any way to bypass this please? I can always go to Overpass, but the HOT export tool makes the process much easier ☺
The particular query I have just now is settlements in Greece with (where available) names in Greek and Roman alphabet.
Many thanks as ever,
