[placenames] Shift minimal zoom level for place=hamlet and place=village

Reported by: jekhor@… Owned by: mapnik-team@…

Description

In non-urban areas the map seems almost empty. Villages are rendered at zoom levels >= 12, and hamlets at levels >=14. But for Belarus, for example, reasonable minimal zoom level for villages can be 10-11 and for hamlets --- 12-13. Probably, this values will not be acceptable for other countries.

With current values, place=hamlet is almost unusable with renderers.

Can't render country specific filters at the moment. Will consider bringing in at one zoom earlier. Can you give a typical Belarus URL so I can test?

At left part --- typical current Belarus state. At right --- my experimental change (hamlet->village) for small area. We, as OSM local group, want to keep right information in the database instead of changing it for getting more useful renders.

Is there any progress in resolving this bug?

Replying to steve8@mdx.ac.uk:

Is there any progress in bringing hamlets one zoom earlier? The map looks empty, when it has borders of hamlets but not their names.

Just my two cents. This problem is actual for Russian territories, too.

Yes, i think these villages on screnshot (OpenStreetMap_1263553735171.png) should have visible names at that zoom level (zoom=12), but their names appear only on 14 level, when village contours have very big size on screen.

These villages have no population in tags (just marked place=hamlet), populations are about 50-100.

I agree with ticket reporter that level 12-13 is good for hamlets.
