Changes made to this rendering

This page describes changes made here, here and here, and visible here.

17/01/2022

Add lots of other clubs (social, sailing, etc.) with no other tags as "leisure". Added an icon for scooter rental and added to legend. Changed criteria for national parks to exclude protect_class=5. Many UK ones are tagged this way, but they will be included by other checks such as on "designation" or explicitly tagged as "boundary=national_park". Added icons for taxi stand and taxi office, and added to legend. Following a taginfo.json update, removed some tags from the style.lua file that no longer occur in OSM anywhere. Updating taginfo.json with more key information. Tag information is complete, but keys processed for those tags is still a work in progress. Added blue hatching for "intermittent" water areas and a slightly less prominent blue hatching for areas that are merely flood-prone. Added a rendering for intermittent wetland. Re-saved some .pngs from gimp to make them much smaller (300 bytes rather than 30k).

09/01/2022

Updated taginfo.json with recent updates. Updated update_render.sh to handle separate users for "getting things from github" and "running renderd", as now required by Debian 11 and Ubuntu 21.04 and above.

05/01/2022

Updated map at map.atownsend.org.uk to show "flooded" layer and England and Wales-sourced local authority public rights-of-way. Moved the CSS file used and changed the layer switcher font to be legible on more platforms. Added attribution for non-OSM layers.

26/12/2021

Render flagpoles - normal ones in black; MOD ones in red, show name, and add to legend. Resolve an issue whereby maypole names weren't displayed at some zoom levels. Add "office=police" to the list of offices that are rendered. Render "informal=yes" the same as "trail_visibility=intermediate". Changed the "big chimney" threshold to 50m so that a couple of very prominent York chimneys pass the threshold. Remove a couple of no-longer-existing-in-this-form maps from SomeoneElse-map. Display "location=overgroundground" pipelines as bridges. Display gantries as pipeline bridges. Move the handling of some offices from "building" and "landuse" to the "office" tag. Handle telephone exchanges and some other offices as offices rather than just landuse. Remove ferry terminals and from landuse=commercial handling. Don't treat highway=services as rest_area but instead as landuse=commercial. Handle club=sport via noncommercial leisure rather than landuse. If there's no other information with a club=yes, assume it is "leisure".

21/11/2021

Change start node of legend from 9100000000 to 29100000000 as OSM has now caught up: https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/9100000000 . Don't show long distance path relations without name or colour. If something is tagged as both an archaelogical site and a place, lose the place tag. Don't display building names for amenities if the building tag is empty, or if a name for an amenity is already displayed.

10/10/2021

Rearrange legend to split the "shops" line. Render shop=seafood as its own icon. Include amenity=scooter_rental in the list of objects for which operator is counted as name. Don't include disused:amenity=grave_yard as "vacant" if still landuse=cemetery. Render shop=copyshop and shop=coffee etc. with their own icons.

12/09/2021

Render shop=pastry as shop=bakery. Render shop=optician, shop=shoes, shop=electronics, shop=stationery, shop=catalogue, shop=musical_instrument with their own icons. Render shop=locksmith and shop=shoe_repair with their own icons. Render shop=storage_rental with its own icon. Render shop=health_food with its own icon, and also zero-waste health food shops. Add an icon for various "soft" homeware shops ("hard" homeware shops still get the furniture icon).

02/09/2021

Render various sidewalk:left and sidewalk:right combinations as sidewalk. If motor_vehicle=no is set on a BOAT, it's likely that a TRO is in place, so render as restricted byway instead. Render linear barrier=rendering_wall as wall. Render sinkholes that are mapped as ways as linear cliffs, and sinkholes that are mapped as nodes with a separate icon. Render zero-waste convenience stores and supermarkets with a distinctive icon.

31/07/2021

Render "public_transport=platform" as "highway=platform" if there is no "highway=platform" or "railway=platform" tag. Render a couple more water man_made=monitoring_station. Added protect_class=2 to protected areas shown as national parks. Render castle walls as city walls.

31/05/2021

Fix a bug where narrow "designation=public_bridleway; trail_visibility=intermittent" paths were omitted. Fix a bug where narrow paths without designations with trail_visibility=intermittent" paths were omitted. Added support for motorcycle_parking (including if mapped as a modifier for amenity=parking). Treat zero waste shops as other grocers. Added a few more combinations of ice_cream fast_food.

16/05/2021

Render service=aircraft_control and aeroway=control_tower the same as tower:type=aircraft_control. Render "emergency=lifeguard;lifeguard=tower" as "emergency=lifeguard_tower". Render "chicken;grill" fast food as "chicken". Added rendering for historic mass rocks. Where a phone box is allegedly something else, it probably isn't a phone box any more. Render as that something else. Show black, white, blue, green, grey and gold phone boxes as the correct colour rather than red.

10/05/2021

Render "highway=busway" as highway=service. Fix a bug where narrow "designation=public_footpath; trail_visibility=intermittent" paths were omitted. Render things tagged as natural=shrubbery as hedge areas.

29/03/2021

Added support (following wiki vote) for historic=ogham_stone. The "taginfo.json" list was also updated with recent changes. Render locked gates differently (with an "L" in the icon) to other gates. Render more "fast_food" cuisine combinations. Treat car ports as building=roof, like other similar buildings. Render holy wells using a variant icon of either a water well or a spring, depending on other tags (see legend for examples).

08/03/2021

Render for-pay bicycle_parking differently from free ones. Also updated legend. Render highway=trailhead (used only occasionally) as information=route_marker. Render narrow tracks as narrow. Render some semicolon network values such as "ncn;nhn;nwn" as an appropriate value (here nhn). Added rendering for weather, rainfall, sky brightness and earthquake monitoring stations.

12/01/2021

Treat "foot:physical=no" as "trail_visibility=no".

02/01/2021

Display various playground items from zoom 18. Display waterway=brook as waterway=stream. Change "width" check for "pathwide" etc. to include any numeric values >= 2, and a selection of common legal non-numeric values.

01/11/2020

Added support for more bad trail_visibility values, which remove non-designation paths and tracks from the map. Render trail_visibility=intermediate with wider spaces dashes on paths and tracks. Render trail_visibility=intermediate, =bad and =no with wider spaces dashes on wide and narrow bridleways and footpaths. Added less visible paths, tracks and wide and narrow bridleways and footpaths to the legend. A couple of hidden changes were also made, to reduce references to values in style.lua after they have been changed to something else, and changing output values for the .mss file to have different values (e.g. "bridlewaynarrow") to the value in the input file (which might be "bridleway"). This last change doesn't affect roads, which keep their original values in more situations. Render "overgrown=yes" as if the trail_visibility was intermediate. Made "barracks" less red.

25/09/2020

Added "access:covid19=no" as a "closed due to Covid 19" tag for pubs. Added international walking networks to ldpnwn - I have found one in the UK that is explicitly signed. Previously they were ignored because I was aware of none that were signed; they are mostly just a fantasy in the same way that "E" roads are in the UK. The "name:signed" and "ref:signed" tags will still be honoured. Extended test for Hogweed following undiscussed but well-meaning tagfiddling changes to values in UK. Added support for public footpath, bridleway and byway closures - keep the footpath, bridleway or byway rendering, but add the "private" overprint.

13/08/2020

Render "closed due to Covid 19" pubs as similar to. but not quite the same as, normal disused pubs. More beer garden and outside seating edge cases. Updated legend to include outside seating and beer gardens on pubs and also disused and "closed due to covid" pubs.

Render pharmacy=yes where it doesn't clash with another amenity tag. Suppress names on riverbanks where mapped as "natural=water; water=river" to avoid clash with the name of the actual river. Rendering AEDs in disused:amenity=telepone. Render shooting ranges with red "military" overlay. Render indoor_golf as leisure. Change fill for proposed and construction rail tunnels from grey to silver to show HS2 tunnels slightly more clearly. If something is tagged both as a supermarket and a pharmacy, remove the tag for the latter.

11/04/2020

Render golf=cartpath as path rather than highway=service if that tag is set. Render variously tagged showgrounds as meadows. Render shop=meditation as "woo". Render woodland with an unexpected landuse tag as woodland. Render various synonyms for leisure=common.

23/02/2020 release

Render wheelchair tags on rarer pubs as part of the bar at the bottom of the icon. Render wheelchair tags on bar, cafe, bank, pharmacy in the same way.

Render craft=electronics_repair (and other keys used with that value).

Names (even for nodes) are also displayed. Render highway=rest_area as amenity=parking. Render railway=traverser as building=roof. It's not ideal, but it is better than nothing. Also render animal=horse_walker as building=roof. Treat animal=shelter as amenity=animal_shelter, as that is how it is used. Look at more tags to suggest farmgrass, such as animals kept there.

17/01/2020 release

More synonyms for tractor sales added. Added rendering for natural=saddle. Added landuse=paddock as a synonym for "farmgrass". Render solar panels as "roof", not as other power generators.

Render non-historic aeroplanes and helicopters as buildings. Render coachbuilders as car repair.

21/12/2019 release

Render shoulder as if a road has a sidewalk on primary, secondary, tertiary, unclassified and residential. It's not perfect - if you are walking along a shoulder you'll want to watch out for farm traffic, but it's safer than walking along a normal road. Added more synonyms for hotels, caravan_sites, beauty and healthcare places. Render agricultural meadows and grassy farmland with a colour half-way between existing farmland and meadow.

21/11/2019 release

Remove "tourism" tag from monasteries and other historic buildings so that they are displayed as "historic". Also trees and boundary stones.

26/10/2019 release

Added more "car parts" combinations. If we're allowed to walk somewhere but general access isn't allowed, then don't render as "private" or "destination", and don't degrade the display of service roads because they are driveways. Also add lnduse=industrial to substations. Added small text for natural=valley.

10/10/2019 release

Render barrier=flood_wall as wall. Don't render the names of unsigned long-distance foot, horse, cycle or mtb routes, as unfortunately a number of "routes from books" seem to be making their way into OSM and don't exist on the ground.

Handle "soft_play" like "indoor_play". Choose which to render between some tourism and amenity tags. Render names on cliffs, embankments, levees, walls and linear gates. Render the names of canals more frequently along their length. Change private footways, tracks etc. to be more obviously different from non-private ones.

Ensure that wind turbines are shown as wind turbines (and not towers) at all zoom levels. Remove "private" indication on path and pathwide if foot=yes or foot=permissive. Render layer/level 0 highway=corridor as footways. Non-ground corridors omitted (it'd get messy); indoor=corridor omitted (area highway features mostly supressed in this style).

Apply changes from parent repository from pull 814 and then reapply changes from here . Changed motorway junction refs to black, as these are used on other roads too.
