Description

I would really love to have site-relations integrated in the current mapnik stylesheet. Here are some examples: http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/relation/1030019 http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/relation/1029540 http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/relation/1026680

i second that. there are a lot of site relations already. also there is a proposal for parking_spaces which makes use of relations tagged with site=parking, which would benefit greatly from that too: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/parking

I second this change request. site relations are very usefull but not supported in Mapnik.

+1 for that

here are more usecases where proper rendering of relation and most importantly entrance=main and entrance roles would greatly improve the usefulness of the map for tourist:

  • Skanzen Strážnice - http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=48.90183&lon=17.30796&zoom=17&layers=M - the basic information - from where to come as a turist is not presented. There are two gates and only by human heuristic you may guess that the eastern one is the main entrance. Funny think is that recently someone added to the entry way name "vstupní cesta" (entry road in Czech) to help tourists to find it. This is obviously not very systematic - the way does not have this name - it is just a track going to main info centre. However it helps to remporarily solve the problem.
  • Prague ZOO - http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=50.11555&lon=14.41097&zoom=16&layers=M - in this case is difficult to guess correct entrance even for local people as it has changed recently. It is very well mapped, but as there is no way to mark the entrance it is again left on the imagination of turists where they will stop their car. It is a pity, as this is exactly the usecase where OSM could excel and surpass other maps.

How should this be reflected in the rendering, concretely?
