businesses

Posted by RayOnTheFarm on 21 September 2012 in English (English)

working to establish all known businesses between cross city FL, old town FL, fanning springs FL, chiefland FL, trenton FL and bell FL.

I have noted that some business types, and government buildings, have no appropriate type icon in potlatch. Not sure if this is a shortfall of potlatch, or the dictionary of available types in OSM.

Welcome to OSM!

Not all things are available in potlach (it's mainly for beginners). There is more in JOSM, but not everything. In "expert-mode" you can map nearly everything, but not everything is shown in osmarender. Maybe it will be shown by http://www.flosm.de/html/POI-Karte.html Some icons do not exist (yet).

Take a look at the Wiki for more information: e.g. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Shops#UK

or (german) http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/DE:Key:shop

OK, now using JOSM. Takes a bit getting used to, but seems to do an OK job. Still having an issue locating correct marker types for agriculture facilities. Using commercial for the time being.
