OpenStreetMap

Just discovered this edit involving sections of the Skyway elevated highway, which is for me, much of another exercise of the mapping for the renderer, something to do with the editor being a Maps.me user (and major roads there generally use some shade of red and orange). Much of the Skyway is built as a road over a road due to space constraints in a very dense urban area like Manila (and is mapped as such), but on that edit and another previous edit by the same user, sections of it has been adjusted, the main argument being superimposition on some map renders such as those by Maps.me. I’m considering a revert of that plus its continuation for the reason of mapping for the renderer.

well, [Skyway][https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skyway_(Metro_Manila)) is very dominat here. covered streets hidden from map. that’s sad.

But how it’s problematic? It’s completely fine to map Skyway as being over existing roads; that’s how it’s built. This might be something worth bringing up to the Philippines mapping community.
