How to download proper polygons from osm-boundaries?
I would like to download proper borders on country level. I only need two countries, but osm-boundaries does not seem to get me there...
The issue is described here on stackoverflow, but essentially non of the settings I can place here allow me to get a proper polygon of the landmass of a country, as long as it isn't an island.
Just read your Stackoverflow post as well. It's not possible to see what database you are using, but you should probably try another. OpenStreetMap is broken fairly often. OSM-Boundaries provides data as is, ie we do not repair it. That's one of the reasons to why we provide historical data.
Land-only is probably very broken in the April database from 2023, because the costline in OSM didn't work properly at the time.
