Ticket #2326 (new enhancement)
[roads] Render refs of tracks/footways/paths
|Reported by:||ColinMarquardt||Owned by:||mapnik-team@…|
in Italy for instance, lots of hiking paths are numbered. In order to get the number shown, these commonly also use the name key for the number, in addition to ref.
So for that reason, the ref should be shown. Since the name is centered on the line, the ref could be drawn along it with a dy offset.
Example with name and ref set to the same value: http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/34909410
Example with *different* name and ref: http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/24863658
