I can't get any OSM data from the Get Map Data option anymore. CE sits for about a minute at "Creating resource blahblah/map.osm" and then returns a window saying "Selection is empty!". However, there is definitely data there because I can get it straight from OSM. Also, when I use the function in CE 2016.0, it works as expected.
What could be the issue here? It worked a few days ago, and the computer setup did not change. I might have saved my password in the program, which I usually don't do, perhaps it's because of that? Clearing it didn't fix anything, but maybe it can be cleared "properly" elsewhere.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you for reporting this issue. Internal testing also revealed it.
The CityEngine team is working on a solution.
So far, a login problem can be ruled out, the OSM data is available to everyone.
The login is only required for obtaining Esri data.

Grabbing the map.osm in the maps folder from CE 2016 also works. I ran into another OSM problem: the streets don't stay aligned properly in any non-EPSG 4326 project when exported to a CE webscene. This affects only the streets, buildings stay in the proper place.
The misalignment is caused by a known issue. The webscene (3WS) exporter cannot handle two layers having the same name.
Workaround: Rename the streets layer from "map" to "streets" prior to the export.
Hello Thomas, Do you have a patch for the 2019.1 version? I am having the same issue. Using 2019.1 version. Online connection ok. Get map data feature is not working regardless of whether the scene has a coordinate system assigned. getmapdatafeaturenotworking
