2020-12-03 Thread Adam Franco
*hazard=frost_heave, hazard=bump?* One of the common road hazards I encounter and would like to tag are large frost heaves that occur at consistent locations every year. A few roads in my region like VT-17 and NY-8 have poor roadbeds and get damaged by frost heaves the first winter after

Re: [Tagging] Deprecate water=pond?

2020-11-12 Thread Adam Franco
I'm wondering if rather than deprecating water=pond, it would be better to keep it as a value with overlapping usage to lake (like river/stream) and instead focus tagging on the actual differences between different bodies of water. I'd suggest two new tags that get at the heart of what I've been

As someone who renders a driving-focused map of [the most twisty] roadways, I specifically have done exactly what Volker describes (looking at highway=crossing nodes only). To provide an example, my renderer walks down each vehicle-legal way and demotes the

Re: [Tagging] Rio de la Plata edit war

2020-08-04 Thread Adam Franco
It seems to me that the main underlying conflict is that (at least in the default Carto rendering on a few years ago) the Rio Plata was getting rendered as land at low-zooms and South America simply looks wrong when such a large water area is rendered as land.

I have a question about `name=` and variants of names. I've been reading a lot of local history and in the architecture/history world, houses are generally named for the first resident that they were built for. E.g. "Johnson house" and are referred to in this way even after many generations of new

What areas are "dangerous" is very much a matter of race and class in the USA and likely in many other parts of the world. For example, there are wealthy mostly-white neighborhoods in many American suburbs where a person-of-color just walking or driving through is cause for residents to
