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

From Gerd Petermann GPetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com on Sun Nov 22 14:54:13 GMT 2015

Hi Ben,

I think it is okay, but I don't yet see a need to handle abandoned:highway.

I find > 2100 ways that with abandoned:highway=* and highway=*.

Do you think these are not usable highways ?

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
