OpenStreetMap-Carto release v4.24.0

Posted by Joseph E on 25 October 2019 in English (English)

Dear all,

Today, v4.24.0 of the OpenStreetMap Carto stylesheet (the default stylesheet on the OSM website) has been released. Once changes are deployed on the openstreetmap.org it will take couple of days before all tiles show the new rendering.

Changes include:

  • Create darker river-color for river & canal areas and waterway lines (#3930)

The color of river, canal, ditch and drain waterway lines and river and canal areas is changed to #8fcadd (Lch78,21,227)

  • Fix rendering of water body labels (#3919)

Restores rendering of water body labels on points (node features) Fixes rendering of natural=bay to use italic font at all z levels Cleans up duplicate natural=strait code in water.mss

  • Precedence of junctions over POIs (#3915)

Junction=yes, =motorway and man_made=bridge labels now render before amenity-points This prevents icons from blocking the display of these text labels

  • Remove rendering of waterway=wadi (#3931)

The tag waterway=wadi is deprecated, suggested replacement: waterway=river/stream + intermittent=yes OR natural=valley

  • Move parking to amenity-points layers, change way_pixels limit and initial zoom level (#3923)

Moved parking features back to amenity-points layers Changed parking text intial zoom to z14, as planned in PR #3612 Change way_pixels limit for parking icon (750) and text (3000)

  • Don’t use classes anymore (#3912)
  • Convert state & country layers to ST_PointOnSurface (#3920)
  • Convert addresses to use ST_PointOnSurface (#3898)
  • Apply bbox to part of “addresses” query (#3942)

The 4 changes above are needed to allow use of vector tiles ST_PointOnSurface is used to generate a point for labeling Classes are removed, replaced with the layer id

  • Documentation updates (#3911) & (#3910), Code clean-up (#3899) & (#3922)

Document inner line rendering, update docker documentation Clean-up text-placement / marker-placement, remove natural=marsh

Thanks to all the contributors for this release, including Adrian Piotrowicz (@nexces), a new contributor.

OpenStreetMap Carto Release v4.23.0

Posted by Joseph E on 20 September 2019 in English (English)

OpenStreetMap Carto (the default stylesheet on the Openstreetmap.org website) has released version v4.23.0 today.

Changes

  • Combine low priority layers using ST_PointOnSurface (#3874) Fixes a bug which rendered parking icons twice

  • Restore rendering of landcover text labels on points (#3878) For the past several months nodes with tags like leisure=sports_centre lacked a text label

  • Adjust aerodrome initial & final zoom levels (#3879) Aerodrome name labels now start rendering at a later zoom level, and continue rendering to higher zoom levels unless the area is too large

  • Adjust width of hedge & citywall up to z20, adjust hedge color (#3847) Minor changes to make barrier line widths more consistent

  • Increase office= initial zoom to z18 and move some values to z19 (#3896) No longer renders “office=*” at z17, undocumented values are shown at z19

  • Create new layer for ref of highway=residential/unclassified/track (#3709) Changes ref to standard halo-radius, oblique font, and same size as name at >z17. This renders the “ref” number at lower priority than the names of these minor roads

  • Add fill colors for wetland=mangrove/saltmarsh/reedbed (#3807) Also adds salt dots pattern for wetland=saltmarsh

Once changes are deployed on openstreetmap.org it will take couple of days before all tiles show the new rendering.

We welcome new contributors who might be interested in solving one of the many open issues. See a list of [relatively easy first issues](https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto/issues?q=is%3Aissue+is%3Aopen+label%3A%22good+first+issue%22_.

It’s not necessary to have coding or cartography experience (though this will make it easier): I started contributing about a year ago without any prior coding experience.

Contributors with experience in CartoCSS and cartography may be interested in the list of more challenging issues that need help
