#5003 closed defect (wontfix)

Labels for boundary=political should not be rendered

Reported by: cg909 Owned by: mapnik-team@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: mapnik Version:
Keywords: boundary Cc:


Currently mapnik generates labels for all boundary relations if they have names. This is contraproductive for boundary=political, as these boundaries aren't interesting to many people but tend to have similar shapes to administrative boundaries and their labels can obscure these of the administrative boundaries.

Example region:

Current rendering: In the center of a political boundary is a label with the boundary's name.

Expected rendering: The boundary should be invisible

Currently the only workaround is using another tag except `name' to record the name, but this makes editing harder as editors like Merkaartor or JOSM use the name tag in relation overviews.

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

This issue is probably rendered moot by recent changes to the catch-all labelling statements.

If it is still an issue, open a ticket on the openstreetmap-carto issue tracker.
