Mapping

  • From version 2.26.0 of the OpenStreetMap-Carto style sheet onwards (this is the default style in osm.org), amenity=place of worship and aeroway=terminal without building tags are not rendered. However, this was changed back to version 2.26.1 for place_of_worship, so these also now appear back on the map, without the building date.
  • User malenki, who is familiar with Scout/skobbler, draws a conclusion about Scout Signs and shows how it could be improved.
  • Rob Nickerson talks about two proposed amendments and asks how the OSM Communnity handles it. A discussion about the maturity of OSM started on the talk-mailinglist.
