[landcover] Render embankment=yes instead of man_made=embankment

Reported by: jttt Owned by: mapnik-team@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: mapnik Version:

Mapnik renders embankments only when tagged as man_made=embankment, but Map Features page say embankment=yes should be used. man_made=embankment is not documented anywhere on wiki except natural=cliff.

I suggest to change rendering rules to render embankment=yes (and maybe remove man_made=embankment).

Well a first step would probably be to try and get the people behind the two different tagging schemes to discuss it and come to a conclusion...

embankment=yes is already on Map Features page and it's used 830 times in planet.osm. man_made=embankment is not documented and it's used 4 times.

I thought that having man_made=embankment in mapnik's rendering rules is rather a mistake than a new tagging scheme.

Can you point me to a couple of instances of embankment=yes (preferably in UK as that is my standard test db)? Presume that like bridge=yes it is in combination with one or more other tags. How many and what are they? I will then have a look.

You can download all elements with embankment here: Note that embankment=false and similar tags are included as well. I got that file from XAPI but XAPI was dead in last few days so I can't provide current data.

Visualization of elements alongside (parallel to) a way should be possible in mapnik sometime in the near future. Currently it's hard to implement this, as the embankment lines would be hidden under the actual ways they pertain to.
