Keywords: waterway river labels Cc: UFeldmaus


Labels for rivers (waterway=river) are not displayed on the Mapnik rendered map. They are displayed properly for canals (waterway=canal).

Example (showing a river and a canal):

River names should be displayed too.

Hi, to support and to make more specific the request: river names should be rendered

  • with zoom level 13 and higher
  • the name of rivers - and of canals - should be repeated according to zoom level, I mean it cannot be that the name is rendered once for a 1.000km long river, but should appear in the area selected

I strongly support this requirement. The cycle map shows the river name correctly and for long rivers in several instances. With Mapnik names of canals are shown correctly, but for rivers and streams the river name does not show up with Mapnik. Please make it urgent!
