$test = Invoke-WebRequest -Uri “Overpass API Query Form”
$dbForm = $test.Forms
$dbForm.Fields[“”] = “[bbox:50.662127,5.9748990,50.857233,6.218150];node [natural = tree];out meta;”
$r = Invoke-WebRequest -Uri (“http://www.overpass-api.de/” -$dbForm.Action) -Method Post -Body $dbForm.Fields
and i write this code but it didn’t work well.
Any tips will make me glad.
That’s unfortunately not how HTTP passes forms; they get passed in the request header.

You’ll need to understand exactly what the web server expects n
