[mkgmap-dev] [patch] hide abandoned highways in default style

From Ben Konrath ben at bagu.org on Sun Nov 22 12:33:13 GMT 2015

Hi Gerd,

Here's a patch to hide abandoned highways in the default style. Abandoned
highways have some evidence of their former existence but are no longer
used. I made a separate rule for this change to highlight that abandoned
highways could be useful in topographical maps.


The rule also matches highway=abandoned. While not an official OSM rule, it
is being used in the US an Europe:


I also found a German wiki page for it but not a page in English:


Let me know what you think.

Thanks, Ben
