Hi All,

I proposed the switch to a "damage=" tag to this community about a month ago and received a positive response, albeit from few voices. When I brought this up again at SOTM-PH it was also well received. As such I think we should switch to using the "damage=" tagging schema and move away from tagging damages in the building tag.

The rendering on this may lag at the moment but is easy enough to catch up - Yohan has already signaled that he can switch quickly.

Subject: [HOT] New Task: Carles Post-Disaster Tracing


Wanting to contribute to the post-disaster assessments in Philippines, I read the discussion about tags and rendering. As Pierre's tip about the mapcss was useful for everyone, I added it in the workflow tab in the job I wanted to contribute (http://tasks.hotosm.org/job/360). Would be good to have a defintive statement regarding Jonathan's questions and put it in the workflow as well, so that there is no doubt about the tagging.

Excellent heads up with this styesheet.

It has highlighted to me a possible confusion I have.

There are 3 building scenarios as I understand it: 1. Undamaged Building
2. Damaged Building 3. Destroyed Building

The tagging I understand for those three are:

1. Undamaged Building

2. Damaged Building

3. Destroyed Building

So, in 2 & 3 there is no longer a [building] tag and the stylesheet
paints it Green.  In 1 there is no [damage] tag but the stylesheet
doesn't paint it green even though it has [typhoon:reviewed] tag?

Any ideas. Thanks
