The trouble with showing capacity tag on

Posted by giggls on 30 October 2020 in English (English)

Starting from a pull request for at github I added visualisation code for capacity and maxtents tags.

Unfortunately it is far from clear if capacity means people or number of camp pitches in case of campsites.

While the Wiki clearly states, that number of people are meant many mappers seem to think that we are talking about the number of pitches.

Unfortunately there is nothing I can do about this.

Any ideas?

A small update for Open Camping Map

Posted by giggls on 30 December 2019 in English (English)

Based on a suggestion from the OSM community I added a special symbol for campsites which will need work.

All sites without a name tag or only a name tag are now marked with a ! symbol.

I not a very skilled designer, so feel free to make better Icons which I can merge.

Happy mapping.


Die Farbe von landuse=farmland im deutschen Kartenstil

Posted by giggls on 10 November 2019 in German (Deutsch)

Hallo zusammen,

im OSM Standardstil wurde kürzlich die Farbe von landuse=farmland geändert.

Im deutschen Stil hatte ich den schon immer etwas anders nämlich heller und damit weniger deutlich sichtbar. Nun hat sich das etwas angenähert.

Nun frage ich euch was ihr denkt.

Übernahme der neuen Farbe aus dem OSM Standardstil oder beibehalten des bisherigen Farbtones?
