#3417 opencyclemap missing some terrain tiles opencyclemap defect Dec 26, 2010



Appears to be a rendering error?

#5334 Barriers of all types with the key "bicycle=no" should be rendered opencyclemap defect Jul 16, 2015

Barriers of any kind that block bicycle traffic (bicycle=no) should be rendered on the map. There are some known cases of paths accessible for cyclists, but blocked at some point by a barrier.

For a real-world case see for example this:


and its corresponding note


To render those barriers is highly useful for planning routes!

#1283 cycleway=track not rendered on Cycle Map opencyclemap Wishlist enhancement Oct 22, 2008

Sorry for posting this on the "Mapnik" trac, but there does not seem to be a "Cycle Way" trac. Although some people argue that drawing a separate "highway=cycleway" next to an existing road is better then adding "cycleway=track" to that road (I am not one of them), the "cycleway=track" is still heavily used (i.e. in the Netherlands). However, the "Cycle Way" map view does not render the "cycleway=track" roads as being special for cyclist. "cycleway=lane" however is rendered. In my opinion both tracks and lanes should be rendered.

#2221 pub rendered as postbox opencyclemap defect Aug 26, 2009

Somehow the pub "Earl of Marchmont" gets rendered as a postbox here in the opencyclemap. It could just be render priority, meaning the postbox gets rendered over the pub.

#4004 Town labels missing in Opencyclemap opencyclemap defect Sep 15, 2011

Paisley: http://opencyclemap.org/?zoom=12&lat=55.85006&lon=-4.40583&layers=B0 Shows Gockston, Ferguslie Park, Arkleston (all smaller areas of Paisley). Expected to see Paisley; it appears at no zoom level. The openstreetmap labelling of Paisley/Glasgow? and the suburbs is more like what I'd expect: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=55.813&lon=-4.242&zoom=11&layers=M

Stirling: http://opencyclemap.org/?zoom=12&lat=56.1287&lon=-3.92346&layers=B0 Shows Raploch, Riverside, Broomridge. Expected to see Stirling. Stirling disappears at zoom 10.

Also eg Dunfermline, Linlithgow, Gourock, Greenock, Port Glasgow, Largs - all disappear at zoom 12. This may be a different issue, since Paisley/Stirling? seem to obscured at lower zooms by their suburbs, while these smaller towns mostly disappear with no other label nearby.

All of the above are tagged as Towns in OSM.

#3074 Rendering aerialway ways opencyclemap enhancement Jun 20, 2010

Please consider rendering the aerialway ways? They are very useful here in Switzerland as landmarks when mountainbiking (and some cyclists use some of the for transport).

#2805 Transfer tags to relation merkaartor enhancement Mar 20, 2010

IWBNI to have a menu item for multipolygon relations, to transfer all the tags from the outer way(s) to the relation itself. This would eliminate some of the repetitive (thus boring, so error-prone) work when adding islands to lakes, and similar tasks.

#1762 Show changeset comment merkaartor enhancement Apr 27, 2009

When you show a way or node, you can view history but you can't see changeset comment. It's very important when multiple people work on the same area to see the associated changset with history and especially the comment. And it will be better to have a panel for history and changset comment. Personnaly I don't use GPS with merkaartor but only gpx file so I have free space on right side for this panel. It will be better to have links enable on this panel to view the full changeset and select other ways or node ... but optional feature.

#2740 Expanded Tag Template merkaartor enhancement Feb 23, 2010

In the spirit of "release early, release often", here's a tag template I've been working on for my own use, but happy for other people to take a look.

It covers more features than the default template, but I've missed some stuff out that I don't use, like Karlsruhe addressing. If people think this is heading in the right direction, I'll do more work and post the results.

merkaartor incorrectly renders forest.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Press Ctrl+G and go to


  1. Point mouse to cemetery
  1. Scroll to increase scale to x16

Expected: Forest is near the town boundary

In fact: Forest is drown over the cemetery

#1090 Allow login to the wiki using an OSM account wiki Wishlist enhancement Aug 9, 2008

I'm new to the community and I came across a stumbling block last night. Basically I signed up for an account and then the next day I couldnt log in again. I tried resetting my password and all sorts and nothing worked I just couldnt get signed into the page. After an hour of getting really pissed off with the whole project I came to realise... you need two separate accounts, one for the map and one for the wiki, I had signed up for one but not the other.

Is there no way you can have the same log in details be for both? I groaned at the prospect of having to create a 3rd account just to post here and suggest this, but it turns out the map password works here also, so in that case why can't it work for the wiki?

One login to rule them all!

In fact, how about supporting openID that way I dont even need to sign up for any accounts!

Keep up the good work guys.

#5216 Nominatim should link localised keywords to english keywords nominatim defect Aug 26, 2014


Nominatim should link localised keywords to existing english keywords used as tags in OSM, like "station" being linked to "gare" (french word for station), "bus stop" to "arrêt de bus", and so on.

It would make us able to find these items when querying Nominatim in our native languages when different from English (currently most of the time I'm not able to find them).

This could be done using localisation files giving matching equivalents for each language, and would be very helpful for making trips using public transportation networks, but also for routing in general.

#3510 Problem with omitmetadata=true in PBF Binary Task and ObjectStore osmosis defect Feb 4, 2011

Application of the parameter omitmetadata=true in the write-pbf task sets the 'version' attribute of an processed entity to -1. When trying to write such an entity to an ObjectStore (e.g. SimpleObjectStore) the version attribute is casted from an integer type to a char in method org.openstreetmap.osmosis.core.util.IntAsChar.intToChar(). A negative number obviously cannot be casted to a char and so an OsmosisRuntimeException is thrown.

I could set the version attribute to a valid value prior to storing it in an ObjectStore. However, that's only possible if the entity is not readonly. Otherwise I have to clone the entity, which is not very memory efficient in an Osmosis pipe with much parallelization (e.g. --tee 20).

The easiest and I guess most reasonable fix to this problem would be to write a '0' instead of '-1' to the version attribute in the --write-pbf task when omitmetadata is enabled.

#3605 Mapnik doesn't render specific multipolygon configuration osm2pgsql defect Mar 25, 2011

Situation: Small fenced park (leisure=park+barrier=fence+name=) being an "inner" of a multipolygon representing a larger park (leisure=park).

The problem: smaller park is not rendered by mapnik (even the fence is not rendered). If I change leisure=park to e.g. landuse=grass, both polygon and fence are rendered, however such tagging is not really correct.

I believe that's part of "compatibility" with broken multipolygons which are expected to have tags which belonging to multipolygon on both inner and outer ways. In any case, it should be fixed, as it prevents rendering properly tagged objects correctly, while masking data errors (however, I haven't seen such broken multipolygons in a first place).

Here's the problem: http://osm.org/go/0t21K6eJK--

#3542 Do logging output to stdout instead of stderr osm2pgsql enhancement Feb 14, 2011

#1373 AI for tag completion merkaartor enhancement Dec 2, 2008

(Ok, this is about polishing a rather well-working feature, so has low priority. Some of the suggestions would likely need further tweaking based on user response.)

I imagine the tag completion in the tag editor could be improved if a match was selected from several "buckets" of different priority. If a match is found in more than one bucket, the one with the highest priority would win. (A shortcut would cycle through the matches.)

Priorities could be (from highest to lowest): strings from loaded GPX waypoints; tags that I typed in in this session (prefer the match I typed in most recently over other ones in this session); tags that were downloaded from OSM.

For ways, prefer tags that are on other ways; for nodes, prefer tags that are on other nodes. This would be beneficial to my editing habits even if nothing else was implemented.

For values, complete values that have the same key first, but also match values from other keys (with very low priority though).

Another possibility would be a spatial awareness, i.e. prefer tags that are used close by.

Or... Save all tags that I ever type in myself (cumulated over all editing sessions), and select from this pool. This alone could also be a big improvement (especially if we filter out the name key, as that tends to be unique).

What I'm missing most right now is that Merkaartor seems to only do completion on downloaded tags, but not on my own edits in this session. As a first step, could these be dynamically added to the list of possible matches as I edit along?

#1595 Deleting ways outside the bounding box leaves empty nodes merkaartor enhancement Feb 15, 2009

When deleting long ways, that range outside the initially downloaded bounding box, the nodes of the way will remain in the database, since they might be shared with other ways, that were not downloaded outside the bounding box.

I'd suggest to either give a warning message, when deleting such ways or, better, try to download the regions outside the bounding box and check if it is safe to delete that node, as it is done with streets that are entirely inside the bounding box.

#1675 Restore name completion in tag editor merkaartor enhancement Mar 28, 2009

Would it be possible to restore autocompletion of the name tag in the tag editor, it appears to have been removed deliberately? in svn revision 12225 @ src/EditCompleterDelegate.cpp line 50

I found the name completion very useful as repeated or similar names are actually fairly common, for example many roads may need to be split for various tag changes like surface, highway etc, but still have the same name. Additionally at least in Sydney it is common for parks to be named something like "{Street Name} Reserve"

#3711 Error message is unclear if OSM server bandwidth is exceeded potlatch2 defect Apr 24, 2011

If the OSM server thinks that a user has downloaded "too much", then the error that Potlatch 2 displays is the vague: "Couldn't load the map".

It would be better if this error message was "Bandwidth exceeded. Could not load map data", so that is clear to the user what the problem actually is.

#3205 Split and Join ways history api Wishlist enhancement Sep 4, 2010

Whenever a way is split (to insert a bridge for example) one section maintains the full edit history, while the other half only lists the user who split the way. This doesn't recognise the previous efforts of others. It would be far better if both halves on either side of the split maintained a full copy of the user edit history with the current user added to the list as per normal. This is also a problem when two ways are joined with the ctrl-click method. I love to have accurate maps, but I feel terrible when I am the only one credited with a previous history going back many years, because I slit a way to insert a bridge or something similar. Thanks.

#3484 Share links for search results website Wishlist enhancement Jan 27, 2011

Imagine the following scenario: You want to describe someone (via e-mail) how to find a certain POI - say, a restaurant.

You go to the OSM site, enter the name of the place in Search and get a list of results. You click the one you were looking for and get an arrow on the map, pointing to the location.

Now... how do you get this to that other person?

It would be nice if search came up with an easy way to get a link like http://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=42&mlon=42&zoom=16

mlat, mlon being the position of your chosen POI, zoom the currently selected zoom.

Such a link could easily be sent by e-mail, and it would take the visitor directly to the surroundings of the POI, with a marker showing the POI's position, at the zoom level set by the sender.

As long as Nominatim has access to the coordinates (which I suppose it does), the link shouldn't be too hard to construct. The only design issue is where to place it on the screen. How about

(share link)

next to each search result?

#3581 "users in your area" should be order by active users website Wishlist enhancement Mar 14, 2011

The feature of "users in your area" can be really usefull but the current implementation need some enhancements.

some enhancements can be to extend the radius as #436 or haev multiple radius as #437.

But what i think is easier and better is to order results by "active" users... or at least users that has already mapped something.

because in my area there is a lot of users but none has already edit the map.

we only need to change the :order close in the nearby method: http://git.openstreetmap.org/rails.git/blob/refs/heads/master:/app/models/user.rb#l117


#3895 suppress inactive users "near you" website enhancement Jul 7, 2011


on the user page (http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/<username>) there are users "in the neighborhood.

For me, more than two third of the given users did never map anything and half of the remaining did their last mapping more than a year ago.

Frankly speaking, in the current way this function is quite useless. Maybe the users around someone should filtered if they did map anything. Or better - use the definition of an "active mapper" in the contributor terms and show only "active mappers".

Greetings Christian

#3555 bad characters in tags make GPX-upload invalid website Wishlist enhancement Feb 28, 2011

#3939 Viewing GPS trace animation: add background map website Wishlist enhancement Jul 31, 2011

Just an idea concerning usability: I'd like to see a background osm map when viewing the animation of a single GPS trace - similar to http://gpslib.net/tracks/.

That would simplify the decision, whether the GPS track is worth to download or not. Looking at the naked track animation gives no hint at all where the track is on earth and clicking on the map link just opens a small zoomlevel=14 part of the track. So one has to download the whole track and open it in an external application to get to know where the track is. BTW: The track animation itself may look nice but is actually of no use.

The background images could be static if dynamic means too much server traffic...

Same idea could even apply to 'GPS Traces' tab listing the traces.

#3947 Download gpx api api Wishlist enhancement Aug 3, 2011

I put priority 'minor' (because it's true), but it's important to me, and it's so easy to do for you guys, so please consider it ;-)

I'd almost like the same thing than what's here (more a less) : http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/API_v0.6#GPS_Traces

1/ but in XAPI I don't want to log in just for retrieving gps traces.

2/ and I just need the IDs. For instance, here is what I have from your exemple with api v0.6 <trk> <name>20110625.gpx</name> <desc> support ride</desc> <url>api.openstreetmap.org/trace/1040543/view</url>

<trkpt lat="51.631283" lon="3.3e-05"> <time>2011-06-25T08:57:54Z</time> </trkpt>

<trkpt lat="51.631257" lon="9.6e-05"> <time>2011-06-25T08:57:55Z</time> </trkpt>

... ... </trk>

here is what I wish (more or less) ... I fact I don't need to overload your server with long resquest when I just need the ID. <trk> <name>20110625.gpx</name> <desc> support ride</desc> <url>api.openstreetmap.org/trace/1040543/view</url> </trk>

or even better <trk> <name>20110625.gpx</name> <desc> support ride</desc> <url>api.openstreetmap.org/trace/1040543/view</url> <id>1040543</id> </trk>

Why ? because I am developing a small tool for android named "Osm Mapper Helper", and I'd like to spot roads, streets already having good traces (not too old, with small point interval ). I'd like to filter traces younger than 12months, 18months, 24months.... why ? (again) because where I live (for the moment) every thing's changing quickly. Most of the atlas you buy are wrong !!! With an Id list, I can easily detect what's already available and what's new a bounding box.

#2452 Nominatim web API should give possibility to download all records in certain bbox nominatim enhancement Nov 14, 2009

Since Nominatim is official tool which generates info about which places are in which area, it should give functionality to use it as "where is the place" database (it deprecates is_in tags).

To give ability to use it in other applications, Nominatim should give possibility to download XML dump of all records placed in certain bbox.

Note: See TracReports for help on using and creating reports.
