Re: [Tagging] RFC: vaccination / COVID-19 vaccination centres

2020-11-26 Thread Phake Nick
I think it depends on where yoj exactly are at, in Hong Kong the government
established a few dozens indoor testing spots, tested a million people and
a half, and then shutting down the facility knowing its positive rate isn't
high.

Re: [Tagging] Extremely long Amtrak route relations / coastline v. water

2020-11-22 Thread Phake Nick
Excuse me, what is the limitation here against tagging "Extremely long
Amtrak relations"? Some of those Amtrak services, while long, in my
knowledge are still far from the longest in the OSM database, like they're
shorter than the train route between Moscow to Pyongyang, which have been
tagged as a regular relationship with no observable problem to me.
In my opinion, since these long Amtrak service are still just a single
services, with no break or cha.ge of train or change of train number
in-between, it seems outright bogus to tag them separately, and would
confuse anyway who wish to use OSM data to provide navigation involving
such train routes.

Re: [Tagging] Update - RFC - Special Economic Zones

2020-11-02 Thread Phake Nick
How do you identify different types of soecial ecobomic zones? For exmaple,
in China, you have Hainan, which is a special economic zone for tourism,
you have Shenzhen, which is for policy innivation, you have Tianjin Binhai
new area, which is for logistics, you have a Cloud computing special
management district in Chongqing for internet, you have Shanghai Waigaoqiao
free trade zone for tax, you have Pingtan comprehensive experiment zone for
cooperation with Taiwan, and then you also have Qianhai Special economic
zone which is a service and industry themed zone within the special
economic zone of Shenzhen.

Which of them should/shouldnt be tagged as special ecobomic zone? How to
differentiate between them?

Given the history of language evolution, people keep adopting different
terms for discriminatory use and thus what uacceptable vs what is not will
always be changing. And since it is almost possible to predict what term in
the future will be used by duscriminators, it is basically impossible to
guarantee it will happen again. The best we can do is to minimize such
chance and hope next time it happens will be more than a millennium from
now.

admin_level=1 is by definition higher than national level.
I would say a historical example could be German Confederation, before the
unification of Germany
Another historical example could be the Communist Bloc, which is larger
than the Soviet Union.
It might also be useful to map the limit of power of other countries that
formally controls a number of tributary, vassal or proxy states beyond its
own border.

[Tagging] Should admin_level=1 tag be applied to EU?

2020-07-29 Thread Phake Nick
Cureently, the wiki say the admin_level=1 tag is for supernational border
like EU, but it have not be tagged as such in the OSM database itself.
Should it the tag be applied this way?
Also, another thing is taginfo seems to be showing a number of current use
of the tag admin_level=1 on different features. Are they all incorrectly
applied?

As repeatedly covered in this thread with examples being cited, a
razed/dismantled railway could still leave indication for its railroad
alignment on the ground.

You can have rows of private houses and blocks of factories building over
former railway yet the railway remain can still be visible on the ground.

They're not historical, they're currently existing as remain, and is of

Except, it is relatively common for traces of old railway remain visible
even after new development (e.g. house, factory, shop, road) have been made
on top of their original site. So that cabnot be used as a criteria to
determine whether that should be removed or not although the exact
situation varies a lot in each individual cases.

To add on it, I think something like
https://minkara.carview.co.jp/smart/userid/177050/blog/43940205/ should
still be included in the OpenStreetMap since some of their trace still
exists on the ground and that it's still more or less possible to locate
the alignment of the abandoned rail route.

It is in the OpenStreetMap wiki itself that EU is a
super-national.organization:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:boundary%3Dadministrative

What I'm thinking about is, does Realm of New Zealand
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Realm_of_New_Zealand count? Those territories
in the realm seems to still have some sort of power over comprosing
territories despite proclaimed independence.
Likewise, what about Kingdom of Denmark (relation 9110211)? It is now being
tagged as an administrative boundary but with no admin_level.
And what about British Crown Dependencies (relation 9110397) and British
Overseas Territory (relation 3969434)? The British Crown Dependencies is
now tagged as boundary=historic which seems wrong to me as it's still
current. The British Overseas Territory is tagged as
boundary=administrative but with no admin_level key.

I personally think such should still be tagged as long as the space, or the
right of way, still remain, but not when it have been completely removed,
integrated into surrounding area, and redeveloped, unless traces or marks
of either the remain of the rail system itself or the space previous used
by the rail can still be found despite redevelopment.

Re: [Tagging] Meaning of "administrative" in boundary=administrative, in your country?

2020-05-13 Thread Phake Nick
In South Korea/Japan/China/Taiwan, the minimal administrative level are
usually equivalent of neighborhoods, and have little to no substantial
administrative functions.
For example, https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/3987250 this is
admin_level=9 in South Korea, https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/5830985
this is admin_level=10 in Japan,
https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/9230465 this is admin_level=9 in
Taiwan, https://www.openstreermap.org/relation/8248082 this is
admin_level=10 in China.
Note that admin_level=10 also exists in Taiwan but only a few of them have
already been mapped as a relation in OSM.

It can be explained, but not necessarily intuitively so. Like you can
attribute the fare different and access restriction to them using
motorcycle vehicles, but these are not properties of a motorcycle itself.

Yes, but it would be impossible to check if the motorcycle tag become

I am more thinking about analysis of geographical data of cities or

to be managed.
Even if you view it from the viewpoint of people trying to get a ride, I
would not expect cross-display of the two types of mobility items in the
same format as that would lose the meaning of having the two types of

At the end of the day we are not taking motorcycle taxi and taxi
themselves. What's being tagged are waiting area for taxi or motorcycle
taxis. What matters is that, if one is created as an optional subtag of
another, would not using such subtag result in incorrect analysis of data
when someone use those data, and the answer seems to me as yes.

I saw one mapper who shared their view on why motorcycle taxi should be a
type of taxi, unfortunately I cannot see the rationale within the
explanation given by the editor. I think it would be helpful of the
proposal can be modofied and RFC be restarted so that hopefully other
editors who held similar views can provide a more easy to understand

What you said doesn't make sense.
The existence of a space within the word doesn't inherently make them
separateable.
Like for the tag amenity=charging_station, do you think the space mean ot
make sense to change the tagging scheme into amenity=station +
station=charging ?

Your interpretation on public transit service is incorrect.
When you board a plane from London to Paris, you didn't fly to Paris
because they told us they would fly to Paris. You're going to Paris because
you have expressed interest in going to Paris. Same with rideshareing or
other rented mobility services.

"I pay a driver to take me where I want to with his vehicle" is something
that would also be true for any other public transit vehicles.
Motorcycle taxi is different from 4-wheeled taxi because they provide a
different experience with different speed, charge different fare, have
different level of convenience, can access different area, and various
other factors.

In addition to them being different kind of services, for the purpose of
openstreetmap tagging, it's better to remember that a motorcycle taxi stand
would look quite different from a taxi stand, use the streetspace
differently, and thus mixing them together would also hurt any downstream
data user who might wish to understand the situation of 4-wheeled taxi
penetration in certain geographical area due to conflating the data with
others that aren't of the same type. They're often regulated by different

That they exists doesn't mean they make a different. Taxi with low
pollution and taxi with electric power are same type of taxi as regular
taxi while motorcycle are not the same type of service as regular taxi.
That is like saying we shouldn't have a separate tag for bus versus cars
because there are many different types of cars, including electric car and
fuel efficient cars.:

The reaso  why you get the feeling of people saying "you don't understand"
to you is because you couldn't tell others why your concern is legitimate,
thus making it read like nonsense, even if they might make sense to you,

Because the difference between motorcycle taxi and 4-wheeled taxi is not
propulsion? Your argument was like saying we should use a amenity=stop tag
for all bus stop, taxi stop, helicopter stop, and cruise ship stop because
they are just "services with different propulsion engine" which obviously
wasn't their main differences.

If you don't understand why they're different, you can ask, but you didn't
and just said "They are the same therefore " which obviously didn't
make sense.

Given the proportion of opposing comment being raised, I would say "more
than what have been discussed", as barely anyone raised the point during
the discussion. The only two remotely relevant mentions about it during the
discussion process was 1. one user who think there should be a new parents
tag that cover both regular taxi and motorcycle taxi, and 2. another who
incorrectly assuned "motorcycle taxi" is a combination of two different
features just because the term come with a space. That clearly indicate
discussion was not sufficient and that the proposal should restart the
discussion process.

Since the wiki say,

, and given most reason appeared on the voting page, I would say the
correct action right now is to improve the reasons listed in the paragraph
on why alternative tagging are not available, and then enter discussion
phase again to see if such similar opinion still surface, and then head
into the voting phase again.

1. Let say you are on a random street named "East Okmulgee Street". There
are probably no preexisting translation to the street name in Chinese. But
why shouldn't a translation be made? A Chinese monolingual speaker is not
going to read a street that is named as "East Okmulgee Street". It is same
as a English Speaker would not be able to read the name of a street named
"شارع الإمام محمد بن عبدالوهاب" on the map. There are no person speaking
Mandarin in an area doesn't mean Mandarin speakers from around the world
wouldn't have a chance to look at the map of your place.
Transliteration make no sense in such scenario either. Like the Arabic
street name I just quoted can be transliterated into "sharie al'imam
muhamad bin ebdalwhab" but this is not going to make any sense or help
English speakers in any tangible way to know where they are. They need to
be translated into the English name, which is "Imam Muhammad bin Abdul
Wahab Street", for general English speaking reader to understand the name
of the street.
2. As for duplicating local name, as previously stated, how else are you
going to tell whether the absence of alternative language key is intended
or not? And how can you tell whether a fallback is desirable or not? If a
monolingual English user is navigating a map feature with the following
keys:
name=ཁྲོམ་གཟིགས་ཁང་། 小昭寺
name:bo=ཁྲོམ་གཟིགས་ཁང་།
name:zh=小昭寺
How can the map software know whether they should transliterate or
translate or simply display the values in the original form because it
might be intended?

As an example, https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/3970414 is a relation
for a district named as "Dalseo-gu" in Korea. To transliterate Korean name
into Chinese or Cantonese language, the general rule is that one need to
identify the etymology root of the Korean word. In this case it is "Dal
City (Ancient name of Daegu)'s Western District". The best software that
can do this matching is Google Translate the machine translation site but
even they can only offer ~90% accuracy in identify name of places (They
failed in this example), and that's barring name of places that don't
follow this rule including all Korean name that have no Chinese roots.
Those words need to independently phonetically or etymologically
translated. After identifying the etymological root, one can then
transmiterate the etymological root into Chinese characters, which have a
smaller but still non-zero chance of failing due to the simplification rule
of the Chinese character system especially for the Simplified Chinese. And
then in the end "Dalseo-gu" in Korean will be translated into "Daxiqu" in
Mandarin Chinese and "Datsaikui" in Cantonese.

Names in OSM map is to show the world reader what each objects are.
Unlike Wikipedia and Wikidata, OSM map everything on the ground.
Let assume the world's common language is now priparaish, and English is
now only spoken by a small insignificant African tribe, and is also the
only language in the world that use latin script. And you as a member of
the English-speaking tribe, trying to navigate the map of the world on the
OpenStreetMap, and see objects everywhere outside the area of your little
tribe are in the format of လူတိုင်းသည် တူညီ လွတ်လပ်သော , do you think you
would be able to read and use the map? If you heard a news which said a
terrorist attack occurred at Ketsumisomewhere in local language, turn to
OpenStreetMap and search for the place name, and then find out there are no
Ketsumisomewhere in the world because your language is deemed spoken by too
few to be worth including into OSM and the only name listed in OSM for the
place is केट्सुमीसोममेरे, do you think it is going to be helpful?
According to OpenStreetMap's mission statement, one of the core value of
OSM is "We want OSM data to be used as widely as possible". You cannot use
OSM data as widely as possible without providing the name of all different
features in all different languages, even if some languages might only be
spoken by relatively few people, they are still human that can digest OSM
data. Do you think it is a good idea not to translate the name of an
"Nofoaga faʻapitoa mo fesoasoani faʻafuaseʻi" object into English because
no one speak English at the place it's established even thought people from
aroind the world travelling there who speak English might come and seek
help at the emergency assistance center?

How can a data consumer know that whether end user of a certain language is
going to understand the original language?
And transliteration cannot be automated. There are many specific rules and
exceptions when transliterting place names in different language software.
There are already some OSM-based software that would offer automatic
transliteration but their results are far from being usable. Making
translation is *absolutely essential* for people from different part of the
world to make use of OSM data. Last time when I was travelling in some
foreign nations, I have to give up using OSM because of poor coverage of
translated name for my language in that country which make me unable to
understand what the OSM map is saying.

Isn't that the function of the key? How else are you supposed to use data
in OSM for users who use different languages? Even if a name isn't unique,
how can data consumer figure out the name automatically?

I cannot see why Esperanto being constructed language would cause any
problem to the addition of value in the language into OSM. The wiki
description for lang:xx say it accept BCP47 values, and the "xx" part of
the BCP47 is actually based on the ISO 639standard, and eo is indeed the
ISO 639-1 code for Esperanto.

Yesterday someone added a few dozen Klingon names to countries in OSM. I

Adding Klingon name would not cause copyright issue since vocabularies are
not copyrightable. It's like if you come up with the word "McDonald's" and
then say it is the name of your shop, you cannot stop others from speaking
or writing the word "McDomald's" or claim there are any copyright involved
in such usage.

In my opinion, a name:xx tag should only be added if you can demonstrate

How are editors supposed to demonstrate that when editing OSM? This is

They are a great help to the project of OpenStreetMap and I have been

use. Deviation due to temporary situation even if it doesn't affect
existing stops would usually have prior notice unless during emergency.

It is not the question of grade but it is related to turn diameter and
obstacles and emission regulation and such on different roads, and they
differ according to specific bus models used by each routes.

In PTv2 one can simply select all the ways and then add them into relation,
unlike this proposal where I woild need to try and see where I needs to add
waypoint, and identify if there are any way that can be rendered
differently on different renderer despite it might coincidentally appear as
expected on editor's software.

1. Yes, the chance of route changes are very low, and that's why I ask how
to fixate a route against such changes which would affect how routing
engines route a route.
2. As I have mentioned previously, my greatest use of PT mapping is the
geometry of the routes. So even if stops are the same that'd still affect
my intended use of those routes.

Re: [Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - Public Transport v3

2020-03-06 Thread Phake Nick
As my personal biggest use of the public transportation relationship is to
visualize the ways that public transit route would take, I must say I am
personally against the idea.
>From my personal experience of using a non-OSM website "wikiroutes", which
is a website that let public enter public transit information from around
the world into the platform for navigation and suggestion purpose by
letting users first pick stop.m locations on a map, then try to
automatically display the routing and finally let users correct the routing
to complete the public transit route record in thdir database, I would say
it's easier said than done to expect a software being able to auto-generate
the ways based on station location, even with additional waypoints.
First of all, I don't think there are any existing routing engines for
trains on rail or bus or minibuses on street, so they will need to be
developed first for renderer to be able to visualize these routes,
especially for roads that regular vehicles cannot use. And then, for such
renderer to work, access restriction for public transit vehicle need to be
complete, which is rather difficult not just because of the work it take or
the current incompleteness of the amount of keys in OSM that can be used to
represent multiple localized types of transportation, but also because of
things like mechanical restrictions of bus models that would not be
available in any public document and cannot be verified outside of the
public transit company.
Second, when a user map a public transit relation using waypoints to handle
a special case, how can they know when a waypoints would be needed? Even if
such renderer is built into editor to show which route it would take and
let users add waypoints when that's incorrect, different routers used by
different renderers might route a route differently, what doesn't need a
waypoint on one router maybe different on another router, how can editors
know when it is necessary to add a waypoint to show a route correctly? If a
new road is being built next to existing road which doesn't affect existing
public transit routes, how to preemptively make sure routing engines won't
automatically redirected a route to the new road?
Third, way points are more transient than ways. It's more easy for a node
to be deleted or replaced when editing geometry than ways. How to maintain
integrity of a route geometry when others edit road geometry?

You can consider using BCP 47 extension T as language tag in OpenStreetMap
follow BCP 47 practice. The extension T is for denoting content that have
been transformed from one language into another, so if you write fr-t-frm
then it would denote the content is transformed fron Middle French
(15th-17th century) to Modern French (with frm being the ISO 639 code for
Middle French, and thus you can write name:fr-t-frm=X into the object. You
can read the BCP47 original document for more information.

Re: [Tagging] Roundtrip and closed loop in relations

2019-12-21 Thread Phake Nick
Reminder 1: There are loops within bus route doesn't mean the route is a
circular or round trip route.
Reminder 2: The roundtrip=* key is designed to use in combination with
hiking routes or bicycle routes. A hiking/bicyle route that goes A→B→A
which come back with the same start point with exact same alignment as the
other direction doesn't really mean anything so I don't think a special
value would be needed for such case. As for bus routes, whether or not it
goes back along same road doesn't really mean anything either.

Re: [Tagging] [Talk-us] Trunk VS primary,

2019-12-19 Thread Phake Nick
Problem with applying different road classification system from different
places with their individual tags onto local roads is that:
1. Even if we ignore countries that have different rules within different
part of a single country, there are still about 200 countries in this
world. Each of them having different road classification values, supposedly
each country should have at least a few different levels, would mean there
are thousand of different values that data consumer or renderer or routing
engine and such need to handle and process, which is a pretty big task for
anyone who wish to use these data. It also make inter-country data
comparison difficult or impossible.
2. It will be difficult for a mapper from country A to map for country B
which might be less mapped through means like satellite mapping, video
mapping or site visit, as the mapper would need to familiar themselves with
local classification instead of applying universal standards onto them.
3. Road classification system within each single country is not always
static. Country sovereignty on localities are not static either. When
either of that change, you would need to re-tag every single road in that
place or that country to the new standard if you decided to introduce
country-specific tagging, which would be a very big task.
4. If you are going to setup a table to tell people which road level in
which country is equal to what in other countries, then why not just tell
people with a table that these roads which are tagged with universal tags
corresponds to those level in local classification?

The current usage is that, "Use roundtrip=yes to indicate that the start
and finish of the route are at the same location". As in a route from Paris
to Milano to Frankfurt then back to Paris would be tagged as roundtrip=yes.
You have edited the wiki against established usage to make it become a no.
A word used as a key isn't perfect doesn't mean you can suddenly edit the
wiki to change its definition without regard of all the established usage
in the osm database.

Re: [Tagging] Opening hours syntax for non Gregorian calendar

2019-05-18 Thread Phake Nick
That doesn't seems to solve the problem that would occur. For instance, how
to represent the first Sunday (a feature in Gregorian calendar) after
Chinese traditional ceremony X (a feature in Chinese traditional calendar)
in the opening time syntax, if they're split up for "simplicity"? What
about when the opening time also cover non-holiday festivals that only
occurs according to either calendars?

I don't think those tags like "landuse" should exist in the same OSM object
as closed way barrier tag, because the area inside closed way is a
different object from the barrier that make the closed way and thus per the

Of course such shop will also need to indicate the closing date in
Gregorian calendar fashion, but as those date are not fixed, if you are
typing that information in Gregorian calendar into OSM then you're
effectively inputting one-off event into OSM that needs to be changed every

[Tagging] Proposal: add Tag:route=share_taxi and Tag:route=minibus for public transportation relationship

2019-03-16 Thread Phake Nick
In Hong Kong, it is previously decided that, when tagging routes or
access restriction of public service vehicles, a large-sized
franchised bus can be represented with key/value or "bus", a green
minibus can be represented with key/value of "minibus", while a red
minibus can be represented with the key/value of "share_taxi", because
of different nature of all these service. See
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Hong_Kong/Transport/Public_transport
.

However, in the PTv2 tagging scheme, it does not include support for
either route=minibus nor route=share_taxi, and alternative schemes
like route=bus+bus=minibus or route=bus+bus=share_taxi being proposed
also doesn't seems to receive any support so far. As such I would like
to propose including the tag value of route=minibus and
route=share_taxi into the PTv2 tagging scheme in order to represent
those minibus routes in the OSM database via the PTv2 tagging scheme.

Re: [Tagging] Tagging disputed boundaries

2019-03-14 Thread Phake Nick
Come to think of it, if the goal is to represent different perspective of
disputed territory, then mapping disputed territories as disputed territory
using claimed_by=* controlled_by=* does not seems like a good idea, as such
an area in OSM would need to include a line separating the disputed
territory from the territory it control which a number of countries would
refuse to recognize. I think it's better to simply map the outer boundary
of those countries' theoretical border and apply relevant tags describing
the identify of the area instead.

The three most prominent area that are still using the calendar nowadays
are China, Korea, Vietnam. Each of them have their own version of this
lunar calendar with the most notable difference being the meridian used to
create the calendar. So that once in a few years you could see reports
saying that the lunar calendar and the festival that depends on it are not
correct on some software.

Let's say you represent the Lunar New Year as L01 01. The software can
assume it mean Chinese New Year in China, Vietnamese New Year in Vietnam,
and Korean New Year in Korea. So far so good. But then these festivals
aren't just celebrated within these three countries. Places like Thailand,
Indonesia, Japan, Australia, America, and many other countries around the
world all have different events that would take place for the Lunar New
Year. Sometimes they're commercial events that are currently catering
specifically to Chinese New Year. Sometimes they are diaspora population
that celebrate the festival on the same day as their parent countries. You
cannot know which exact day it's referring to without referring to the
timezone being used to calculate the calendar, and at least it need to
specify Korean/Chinese/Vietnamese version and that is assuming the region
will not create any new timezone in the future, like how time changes
related to the Vietnamese war caused the North Vietnam and South Vietnam
celebrated the new year at different date back then and resulted in some
military advantages.

One might think it'd be easier to add CNY/KNY/VNY into the variable holiday
separately like easter instead, but there are a number of other events
that're celebrated based on local lunar calendar and is celebrated at more
places than those aforementioned countries, like Confucius birthday,
mid-autumn festival, double nine festival, and so on. If calendar-specific
version of all these holidays are all getting their own values as
variable-holiday then there would be too many of them.

And there also other scenario that timezone value is useful, for instance
iirc Fiji decided that the country will implement DST but the school system
operation time will not follow the transition. Or in places like Xinjiang
or West Bank where there are two different timezones used by different
population living in same area.

Except other solar terms are still used. For example March equinox and
September equinox are national holiday in Japan. Setsubun celebration in
Japan is mainly a day before first solar term in February but also a day
before first solar term in May, August, November. Qing Ming (mainly China,
Korea, etc.) is the first solar term in April.

It is usually just numbering, but in Chinese there are nickname for the
11th and 12th month, while in Japanese there are nickname for all the
months. Consider that those nick name are less popular, regional-specific
and language-specific, it seems like it would be a bad idea to name them
after the months.
The "leap" version are for when a year have 13 lunar months. Instead of
naming the additional month the 13th month, various criteria are used to
select one of those thirteen months, and then name it as the "leap" version
of the previous month. There are on average about 7 years with leap month
in every 19 years.

Separating it from the current system might have the advantage that it
will not need to use the same syntax to support all regional specific
methods of day counting and time counting at once, but even after
separated it will still need to support the full set of current

[Tagging] Expand the key:opening_hours

2019-03-13 Thread Phake Nick
I found that the current way of mapping opening time of features in
OSM map are too limiting, and the opening time of some features cannot
be properly represented with only the current syntax, therefore I have
written a brief idea about how the syntax in key opening_hours could
have been expanded to match more different needs at the article's talk
page. See 
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Key:opening_hours#Proposed_extension_to_supported_syntax_in_the_page.
. It would be nice if these features can be added into the scheme so
that relevant featurs opening days and time can be represented by the
scheme directly instead of via text description and external link.

The most significant part of what I would like to see are support for
solar term(節氣/节气/節気/절기/Tiết khí) and (East Asia) lunar (lunisolar)
calendar(舊曆/旧历/旧暦/음력/Nông lịch). And because the calculation of both
are dependent on timezone and then when some countries celebrate these
festivals they use the calendar that is not based on their own
country's time but use the Chinese time (or time of other countries
for overseas diaspora of them) so I have also added a proposal to
support timezone specification in the scheme which is also desired by
some other users on the talk page. Note that the scheme I proposed to
express solar term and lunar month representation wasn't actually that
much intuitive but I believe it have an advantage that it's more
internationalized and thus providing a common way of tagging features
across different regions that use the calendar.

Additionally, I have also written in the proposal that I would like to
see additional supported values for bank holidays, offset in term of
number of weeks, and also support for timestamp beyond 24 hours in the
scheme. Expressing time beyond 24 hours can be especially meaningful
when the operator of those features decided to release their time this
way and it can reduce error when inputing or transporting data into
OSM as it is not uncommon for people to forget properly converting
dates when they are asked to change the time format back to 00-23h
format.

And while it seems like the de facto standard, I would also like to
see the formalization of the handling of time range representation
like Su 23:00-07:00 that in such syntax the 07:00 is referring to
07:00 on the next day.

Any thought on the proposal?

For the coordinated schedule, as an example there is a route that departure
at the following time:
08:00, 08:00, 08:03, 08:06, 08:09, 08:12, 08:15, 08:18, 08:22, 08:25,
08:29, 08:33, 08:38, 08:38, 08:38, 08:41, 08:44, 08:47, 08:51, 08:54,
08:57, 09:01, 09:05, 09:09, 09:13, and of these departures, 08:00-08:15
departures are operated by operator A, 08:18-08:33 departures operated by
operator B, 08:38-08:54 departures operated by operator A, and then
08:57-09:13 departures are operated by operator B.

I would say if you map them as multiple relationship then end users would
have no idea which relationship is the one they want. It's also
unnecessarily increasing the number of route variants that need to be
maintained by the order of magnitude of hundreds.

Re: [Tagging] Use of old_name (was Re: Mapping deforestation)

2019-03-12 Thread Phake Nick
Sometimes a feature is so famous that people continues to use its name to
call the place even after it have been removed. For instance one would
still told their friends let's meet up next to where the McDonald's was
located. Or how transportation companies are still telling people "This bus
terminate at Daimaru department store" even though the particular store was
closed almost a quarter century ago. As long as people are still using it,
then it should be considered "current" and be mapped on OSM, even when the
feature itself have already ceased to exists.

Re: [Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - police=*

2019-03-10 Thread Phake Nick
Is it actually a good idea to put everything under police=*? Like
prison/detainment facilities, yes in China police have some sort of
detainment facilities that can detain people for a given number of days, as
an alternative to go through juridical trial and get into actual correction
facilities, but is the difference really that big? Is it not enough to have
something like amenity=prison and operator:type=police?

Likewise, China is also building some sort of new naval base for its
coastal guard managed by their armed police unit, which are already using
ships that are at warship level and they're preparing it to fight against
forces from other countries, in this situation police=naval_base would fit
but is it really necessary to create such tag instead of simply using
military=naval_base+police=*?

Or, in China some police divisions even managed to setup their own
for-profit companies, like hospitals or construction companies, that would
serve general public and compete in business environment in order to create
additional revenue stream for their police division. I don't think it would
be wise to tag them police=hospital or police=commercial either?

Nope. For example: https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/3352395 The route
us currently operated by two different operators on coordinated timetable
and each operator have their own ETA system. While they do not provide a
GTFS feed for now, it can be expected that each of them will provide their
own feed if they would like to do so in the future. However it doesn't make
sense to have multiple relationship for them as they run on exact same
route with exact same route number and run on a coordinated schedule.

In Hong Kong, we have many area that are officially destinated as
"sitting-out area" that would fit the description. These area usually have
a few benches along with little bit of plantation around them for people to
sit inside. They are managed by government and usually sandwiched between
different streets or buildings. Some of them are currently tagged as park
and garden but that doesn't seems to be the most appropriate description
for these spaces.

are these guaranteed to be accessible? Are they part of the residential
properties, or public space (by property not accessibility) between the
properties?
If they are part of the residential parcel, you could see them as kind of
gardens (within the residential landuse), if they are public property you
could distinguish the intensively maintained (garden and parks) from the
grass areas and from "urban wasteland" (leftovers).

Sometimes, public property (housing) will be sold and the new owner might
treat the public spaces around them differently (privatization of these
spaces).

For indoor tags to be compatible with 3D rendering, there should be a way
to indicate 3D position of bridge/tunnel/stair/any other structures that
connect multiple structures together. Unless I'm mistaken, I don't think
there's currently a universally accepted way in indoor tagging and 3d
tagging to tag a bridge between level 3 of a building and level 6 of
another nearby building, which is a rather common scenario for building
cluster built on a mountain or slope and thus each individual building have
different ground levels.

Speaking of which  many editors, users, editing software, tenderer and such

correct. For instance, I am currently sitting at level 3M of a particular
building, which is physically outside the building and is higher than level
3 while lower than level 4 of such building. If expressed in numerical

I believe many time the boundary of a peninsula are politically defined,
for instance most would often see the Iberia peninsula end at where Spain
meet France, Indochina peninsula's boundary will probably be the southern
border of China, and Sinai peninsula's boundary would be the current border
between Israel and Egypt.

Other time there could be natural features that separate peninsula from the
mainland it connected to, like a mountain range or a low lying corridor, or
man-made structures like canal.

However there are also situation that peninsula are separated from mainland
using simply a straight line, depend on coast direction of surrounding land.

I think there are some cases that might not be sufficiently covered by the
current proposal and it might be a good idea to explain how they can be
tagged in example section of the proposal if they can be represented by it:
* Minamitorishima, where it is undoubtably a Japanese natural feature,
however there are dispute on the nature of the island, which affect whether
Japan is able to enjoy 200nm EEZ from the feature.
* Southern Sakhalin and Northern/Central Kuril Islands, where it is de
facto controlled by Russia, and Japan have already renounced their right
there, however Japanese government insist the ownership of these
territories are not determined yet.
* Sub-national disputed boundaries, for instance the recent city-level
dispute between Hong Kong and Shenzhen over the Sha Tau Kok River
* Different active level of claims for different parties, for instance
Republic of China (Taiwan) still haven't renounced their claim on part of
Russian and Myanmar territories, yet it doesn't seems right to list them as
a party in territorial dispute between China (Mainland) and other
surrounding countries on the same level as PRC itself
* Other different types of claim, for instance the 9-dotted lines which
China claims "historical right" within the line
* The proposal supported by various governments around the world to turn
Jerusalem into a corpus separatum
* Dispute between a national government and a sub-national entity, for
example dispute between Somaliland and Puntland, where according to my
understanding Somaliland is an unrecognized country while Puntland is an
autonomous regional government that is intended to be part of Somalia.
* Dispute between regional government and their national government, for
instance disputed in area for Kurdish autonomous region in Afghanistan
* Some special situation about United States - should Wake Island be
controlled by US or UM (US Minority outlying islands)?
* Guantanamo Bay, where the controlling country (or force) doesn't claim
the area but continues to control it anyway


It would be nice if the proposal can be extended to cover them.

Also, among the existing list of example, for Shebaa Farms, the
claimed_by=* should also include Syria. For Israel-Palestine dispute, it
should also separately list out Area A/B/C for West Bank as each of them
have different status.
