#3585 closed enhancement (fixed)

Barrier=embankment should show at zoom level 14 or 15

Currently the rendering of objects with barrier=embankment show up at zoom levels 16 and higher and are rendered as a thin grey line. I would like to have the rendering rule for just this subtype of barrier show up at levels 14 and 15 as well using the same rendering style.

There are currently around 1500 usages of this tag in the database and all but 50 or so have been entered by me in a sparsely populated area of the Sahara desert along the northernmost border between Egypt and Libya. Since this area is very empty anyway the additional lines would not overly clutter the map and the embankments serve as about the only landmarks in this area and so should be featured prominently.

The proposed rendering change would still have these objects be less prominent than highway=service and would not cause any more clutter than these do.

I marked the priority as critical since this is a HOT area and there are currently many refugees trying to move here and these barriers would serve as useful landmarks on printed maps of the area.
