#2583 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Optionally hide administrative boundaries

Reported by: stevage Owned by: richard@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: potlatch (flash editor) Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Administrative boundaries (that is, boundary=administrative) tend to (in my region, anyway) have been mass-imported once, and never really need to be edited again. However, they really clutter up editing (since, again in my region, seem to be part of a multipolygon relation), and risk being joined onto carelessly by ways that cross them.

Suggestion: 1) Hide them by default, or make them much less obtrusive. The big thick purple multipolygon line is particularly painful. 2) Make them optionally visible, per-user. 3) Consider what other kinds of boundaries/areas should be hideable.

This request is motivated by a discussion on the talk-au list. John Smith made a similar request for JOSM.

I assume that this is meant to refer to Potlatch?

I think this is probably best left for Potlatch 2, which has user-selectable (and user-editable) stylesheets so you can control what gets rendered. I agree that the exasperating tendency of people to import any old random shit can rather mess up the map for those of us who go mapping, but jury-rigging Potlatch 1 to cope with it is probably a less productive use of time than finishing Potlatch 2.
