Posted by Math1985 on 17 December 2017 in English (English)

Today, v4.6.0 of the openstreetmap-carto stylesheet (the default stylesheet on the OSM website) has been released. Once changes are deployed on the it will take couple of days before all tiles show the new rendering.

Changes include:

  • Change sports_centre and stadium color to light green
  • Change shades of green for landuse/leisure=recreation_ground and garden
  • Do not render glaciers and icesheets on z6 and z7
  • Do not render very small water areas on low zoom
  • Do not render small national parks and nature reserves
  • Do not render ferries on z7
  • Improve rendering for bus guideways
  • For built-up areas, replace the external data on z8 and z9 by OSM data
  • Do not render bicycle/motorbike parking icons to z17
  • Render community_centre and social_facility areas in light yellow

Thanks to all the contributors for this release, including Andy Townsend, a new contributor.

Gardens inside leisure=park areas not are rendered in actual version, like the examples: before... This is bad in my opinion.

Previously grass was not visible in gardens, which is much more common problem IMO. But the main problem is that park and garden are more similar than garden and grass, see:
