#2367 closed enhancement (fixed)

size of rendering nodes with building=yes

Reported by: einarr Owned by: osm@…
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: osmarender Version:
Keywords: building, node Cc:


Rationale: Sometimes it is useful to tag buildings without knowing the outline of the building. The tag building=yes is already used on nodes by several people.

Rendering suggestion:

  • A small filled square in the same colour as the border around building outlines is now rendered. (In paper maps for hiking, buildings are often marked as small black squares.)
  • Size probably close to how mapnik currently renders power=tower.
  • Visible from z13 and in. (Perhaps also in smaller size from z=12)
  • name rendered below or above the square from z=15 and in.

A node with building=yes and a name tag is located here: (Node id: 331324803. The node is not rendered by any other rules)

(In [18104]) Make a node with building=yes render. Zoomlevel z17 shows name as well. Also add such a node to the testdata. Fixes #2367 and #1667. Perhaps building=* should render, but I'm not sure...

The building nodes look now nice in osmarender, thanks petschge, just in zoom 14 and 13 squares could get a bit smaller, see the cluttering of residential areas in
