    Lulu-Ann> Hi Josh What about:

    Lulu-Ann> 4. You download the .osm world file and filter the area
    Lulu-Ann> you want yourself?

Or
5. Use xapi.openstreetmap.org or www.informationfreeway.org instead of
www.openstreetmap.org. I already noted this possibility some time ago
in this list.

Best regards,
Igor.
