OpenStreetMap Carto 2.34.0 has been released and rolled out to the openstreetmap.org servers. It might take up to 48 hours before all tiles show the new rendering.

Changes include

  • better rendering for highway=path/footway/cycleway - this is the next iteration of improving how footways and cycleways are displayed. Unpaved footways are now visible on natural=bare_rock and there are now three classes: paved, unpaved and unknown surface #1788
  • man_made=bridge is now rendered #1633, #1791
  • new rendering for landuse=quarry #1696
  • amenity=veterinary is now rendered #1656
  • amenity=community_centre is now rendered #1744
  • amenity=prison and landuse=military rendering takes in account area size #1739
  • consistent color for boundaries #1773
  • tweaked zoom level for amenity=car_sharing #1762 and amenity=car_rental #1761
  • Mapnik 3 preperations are now finished. The style now supports Mapnik 3. Most of the work was done on the Mapnik side. #1792

A full list of changes can be found on Github.

Style for footways and cycleways is not ideal and there are some known problems (see #1793 and #1748). Pull requests that would solve this issues are welcomed.

It is a good idea to check whatever bridges in your region are tagged for renderer - mistagging bridges as buildings is quite popular (only rare constructions fit definition of building=bridge - building=bridge is brown and man_made=bridge is gray).

For people interested in adding surface tags in their area - here is a helpful overpass query (zoom in before using “Run” button): http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/b88 This query return ways without surface tags and ones tagged with tags not documented as valid surface values. Only ways with highway=footway/path/cycleway are displayed. In nearly fully mapped regions one may modify query to search for missing surface also for other highway types.

As always, we welcome bug reports at https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto/issues where they will be tracked.

I found your diary entry interesting, and tried to tag a bridge. Any idea why http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/368210603 renders below the motorway?

Schools don’t appear to be rendered properly now. I recently added two schools and instead of seeing what I used to see (with the name of the school), what is rendered is only the addr:housenumber.

Here’s the view I’m talking about. Please note that the building is a separate feature (building = school) from the point representing the school (amenity = school). http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=17/33.42602/-104.51268
