multipolygons in potlatch

Reported by: dieterdreist Owned by: richard@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: potlatch (flash editor) Version: 1.0
Keywords: multipolygon display area Cc: RichardF


I noticed that potlatch doesn't display multipolygons correctly: it requires the tags for the relation (e.g. building=yes) to be attached to the outer way, which is clearly false. It doesn't interpret (display) them right when set inside the relation.

I assume you're talking about P2 rather than P1 (which doesn't display multipolygons at all). Consequently I'll close this as invalid because trac is not yet used for P2 - there are wiki pages and a TODO.txt instead.

That said, this is a known issue but I'm not sure whether it's an issue with P2 or with tagging practice. Putting way-level tags on the relation is not used anywhere else in OSM and consequently violates the principle of least surprise. I have no idea how you would even begin to code a feature saying "take the tags from the way, unless it's a multipolygon, in which case take it from the relation". I suspect it would be horrible.

Nor am I convinced that it's 100% universal practice - maybe in Germany but not the rest of the world. ;)
