[Tagging] Ways that change names while crossing divided roadways

2010-04-24 Thread Tyler Gunn
I installed the Garmin OSM map for my area and have been using it while I drive around locally. The one thing I've noticed is that there is a lot of inconsistency in how streets that cross divided roadways are named. For example: http://osm.org/go/Wpz_F8RFl- Note Sunset Blvd on the left and

I'm slowly filling in the local mega-retail complex near me: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=49.82432lon=-97.20558zoom=17layers=B000FTF Its a pretty large area, and there are a load of businesses and shops within the area. All of the roads in the area are for the commercial development only;

+1. Micromapping may be on the rise, but that doesn't mean it's necessarily a good thing. I'd still like to see a means of specifying, on administrative boundaries, tags that are to be assumed (inherited) by contained objects (e.g. sidewalk=yes, surface=paved, lanes=2, maxspeed=25 mph,

[Tagging] Parking for businesses..

2010-05-17 Thread Tyler Gunn
I was using the OSM maps for my city on my Garmin recently and when I listed the parking POIs I noticed a whole slew of parking showing up in there; mainly unnamed.. It got me thinking why those are in there but then it dawned on me that in my area I've started adding in the parking lots and

From http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Parking: The distinction between public parking lots, customer parking lots (such as at cinemas etc.), and private parking lots (such as for staff in a business park) is handled with access=* tags. To me, reading that directly that would seem to

Access=private works fine, then (along with access=public andaccess=permissive).  Preferably with an additional tag (or relation) withsome indication of who is allowed to park there. Maybe access=customer isn't needed after all. How about something like: access=private

Agreed, although the situations in which it's not so clear are the ones where OSM could really get an advantage over the competition. So many times I'm directed by Google Maps to a location quite a distance away from the parking lot I'm trying to get to. It's especially annoying when there

Rather than permitted=*, why not use parking_use=*? That would then be consistent with your proposed relation. Though permitted is more general and might be able to be generalised to other features... Or perhaps something like permitted_parkers; I don't think there's anything wrong with a

Why shouldn't it? Probably depends on the situation, but if the occur on an object that we generally tag with waterway, it should be clear. This technique was already used in ancient Rome for special parts of aqueducts (where they had to bypass an obstacle). Aren't they a kind of culvert?

I see how the example you're shown works though; I can just see it getting ugly as you can't characterize the landuse of an entire section of the city as one. Thanks, Tyler -- Tyler Gunn ty
