It will take a while until all amenity=shelter that could be tourism=* have been converted. Until then, we just have to live with the bed symbol on amenity=shelter, or use a custom TYP file. Sorry Peter Hendricks and others who feel amused or offended by the bed symbols on amenity=shelter in urban areas, the solution is to redefine the amenity=shelter icon by using a TYP file. >> Side note: the unsearchable 0x6412 'hiker symbol' could be a good >> choice for some minor hiking feature.

As an all-weather, all-year bicyclist, I agree with you. This was one of the main reasons why I added the rules for highlighting shelter=yes/no in bus stop names. Best regards, Marko
