[mkgmap-dev] tagging/rendering ways with multiple relationsFrom 987654321 at use.startmail.com 987654321 at use.startmail.com on Mon Jul 25 19:59:30 BST 2016
Hi I have been learning OSM mapping now for a while and struggle with best practices for name tagging ways. As an example please view the 1779 Trail on which I have worked which is shared in part by the 1777W Trail, the Timp Torne Trail links included below. What I have done here is * created a relation for each of the individual trails adding the name of the trail to the relation name. * leave the name tag on the way blank. However a problem arises: On waymarked trails this portion of the trail is rendered as follows: http://hiking.waymarkedtrails.org/#route?id=6292324&map=18!41.3237!-73.9884 showing symbols for the 3 trails that the way. On openstreetmap.org it is rendered as follows: https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/41.32387/-73.98884 showing neither the symbols or the 3 associated trailnames. I am wondering 2 things * What is the best practice in dealing with such a situation? * Should I be adding the contents of every relation tag associated with a way, to the name tag of the way? This seems like it would be very cumbersome. * Would it make sense to have the default openstreetmap.org page render the name tag of each associated relation and if there are no relations then render the name tag of the way itself?
