[mapnik] render tracks with different tracktype grades differently

Reported by: openstreetmap@… Owned by: steve8@…
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: mapnik Version:
Keywords: mapnik obey tracktype Cc:


mapnik is currently not evaluating the tracktype=grade(1-5) tag on highway=track.
my rendering proposal is:
grade1: continous line
grade2: dashed line (as it is rendered now) - - - - -
grade3: chaindottet line -.-.-.-
grade4: dotted line (or short dashes) .....
grade5: dotted line (or short dashes) with more space inbetween . . . .

Passed to Steve, but I'm not sure that there is any real consensus on this tag.

well as far as i can see, it's heavily used here in germany to set the quality of a track.

osmarender obeys this tag since several months:

after talking with others and rethinking i would propose this rendering:

grade1: just like highway=service
grade2: continous brown line (maybe less bold than tracks are currently rendered)
grade3: dashed brown line (the current style for tracks, maybe less bold)
grade4: dash dotted (chaindotted) brown line (appearing at higher zoom)
grade5: dotted line (appearing at higher zoom)
