Rendering railway=station below public_transport=platform

Reported by: rayquaza Owned by: mapnik-team@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: mapnik Version:
Keywords: train, station, public transport, railway, area, platform Cc:


Currently railway=station is rendered above public_transport=platform, which means that if the station is mapped as an area (to tell which switches and tracks are within a station and where the station begins/ends as suggested by OpenRailwayMap? and others) platforms will disapear.

Since the building of a railway-station would be correctly tagged with building=train_station instead of railway=station building=yes (which is sometimes used by unexperienced mappers) I don't know any case where the current rendering would be better.

Example: Heidelberg Central Station on Mapnik (Platforms are invisible because of the railway=station, which is rendered above), Heidelberg Central Station on Gravitystorm Transport (platforms are visible, since they are not rendering railway=station as area)

I'm suggesting to render railway=station below platforms to solve this.

The correct place to report bugs against the "Standard" stylesheet on is the openstreetmap-carto issue tracker

public_transport=platform is not rendered at all, so it's not under anything. For *that* feature request, see
