|Thought experiment: What if values had no keys?||about 1 month ago||
I fully agree.
Note that we have different categorisation systems in OSM: * The color scheme of the icons used in the default rendering (for example, blue is a transport category which does not exist as a key classification) * The categorisation system in OsmAND (which for example has a finance category) * The way JOSM categorises features * The Flosm categorisation system
All of them use different categorisation systems, which shows that a central one-size-fits-all categorisation system does not make sense
Fortunately new tag look-up systems, such as in iD, which by default don't show the key names at all, largely resolve this problem.
|OpenStreetMap Carto release v3.3.1||about 1 month ago||
No, it hasn't bern deployed yet.

Ik heb hem voor je aangepast, bedankt voor het melden! Overigens kun je dergelijke zaken het beste melden via de Notes-functie: het tweede knopje van onder rechts onderaan. Of je kunt de kaart natuurlijk meteen zelf aanpassen!
|POI standardization: Tractor Supply Co.||5 months ago||
How similarly are these to Dutch 'Boerenbond' (literally 'Farmers Union') shops? See https://www.openingstijden.com/o2002845/boerenbond-umberstraat-6-tilburg/ for a picture gallery.
|POI standardization: Tractor Supply Co.||6 months ago||
Have a look at the https://github.com/osmlab/name-suggestion-index project, which is currently used by iD.
|Newcomers are welcome, even Pokemon Go mappers||6 months ago||
Hi rory, I used to be very sceptical as well, but at least for South Korea, credit to OSM has been added in the app now: https://www.reddit.com/r/TheSilphRoad/comments/5ptg4q/openstreetmap_data_attributed_in_0532_at_least/
|CJK fonts missing in standard layer (follow-up)||10 months ago||
Shop labels are now rendered from z18 instead of z17.
|label weight||10 months ago||
You can find the relevant code here:
Names of cities and towns are rendered in the layer placenames-medium. Each place is assigned a score, obtained by multiplying the population by 3 for national capitals, 2 for state capitals, and by 1 for other places. If a city has no population tag, 100000 is used as default.
It seems currently neither of the places have a population tag in the database, but adding both population tags wouldn't help as Minneapolis seems to be less than twice as big as Saint Paul.
We recently had a big discussion that resulted in the current algorithm, see https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto/pull/1461.
|Illustration for a PhD Paper||10 months ago||
Too late, a Belgian student already wrote a thesis on this topic: Class struggle in the garden -Communication via (kitsch) objects in the garden (through Google Translate).
|New road style for the Default map style - the full version||almost 2 years ago||
Great work! The new style looks a lot better than the old one overall. It's clear now that using colours different from the background colours not only increases legibility in the extreme cases (trunk on forest, secondary on farmland), but also makes the overall legibility much better.
Some random comments:
Once again, great work so far!
