Permissive Byways, Bridleways and Footways

Reported by: ben_robbins_@… Owned by: crschmidt

Component: mapnik Version:
Keywords: permissive footway bridleway Cc:


Ways wich are privided by the landowner are not currently visible. Footpaths that go around woodland are most commonly there not by law. Its inportant to be able to see this visually as they are marked differently, if marked at all, and Will have not have the same laws linked to them as rights of way. They may also shift or come and go at any point, so people should be awair of this for travelling, and for mapping/updating osm.

The tag used (recomended by the standadised tags page on osm), is highway=footway, and permissive=yes is additonally attached to the way.

For Rendering it would need to render relative to the highway tag. As byways/bridleways and footways are curretnyl the same except for colour difference just making them black would make it inposible to diferenciate between them. Not shore how to get around this, but I think just decolouring them would be logical as they are the same appart from there legal status wich is what colours show.

There are many other more inportant things, but I may as well mention it so it can be implimented at some point in the future.

Thanks, Ben
