Rendering waterway=drain as an area

Reported by: JohnSmith Owned by: mapnik-team@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: mapnik Version:

Currently waterway=drain only renders as a way, it would be nice to also render any drain areas tagged as well, as many drains can be quite wide and these can now be mapped in detail from aerial imagery.

As for how they should render, not sure, might need to assume the default surface=grass and then render differently if drains are tagged with surface=concrete.

waterway=drain is defined to be linear only.

You can use the combination of a linear waterway=drain + a natural=water around it to convey the true area of the drain. Similar to the way waterway=river (linear) + waterway=riverbank (area) work.

BTW: Did you change the tagging in that example area? The north-south bit of drain shows up wide enough.
