Map key?

Posted by gormur on 23 March 2012 in English (English)

Quite a simple way to make an updated map key...

I'm sure that things like this are exactly why we have the test environments.

His point is the map key really needs to be updated.

I've been on this project for almost two years, and the map key looked exactly the same back then as it does now. Yet some of the map features on Mapnik (such as military areas as well as nature reserves) look different now compared to two years ago. So yes I agree that the map key really needs to be updated.

@Chriscf, I had no idea there were "test environments" on OSM. Does that mean that there is a sandbox map?

"His point is the map key really needs to be updated. "

No, he's referring to this:

Someone had drawn in a bunch of non-existent features in northern Greenland, presumably to see what they all look like. As for testing, we have api06.dev.openstreetmap.org, but it looks like it isn't rendered. I can see why - it's intended for people to test software against, rather than for looking at.
