Hi tagging@ list & talk-ca@ list.
Im working on the canvec map features and finding more ambiguities
What i have noticed is that the Garmin MapSource product as a nice
organized set of themes. Similar to how CanVec is organized by
and also similar to how OSM has our own themes.
I would like to begin a Google Docs complex chart, which lists all of
the OSM tags that are used, and how they can be matched up with
I know that the .typ file can be changed. As ComputerTeddy /
Lambartus / Openmtbmap / geofrabrik all have their own version.
However, across the board, there are some standards that can be seen.
ie. a fuel pump is 0x2f (Auto services)
0x01 Icon: fuel pump Gas Station Icon Fuel Services - All Categories
Fuel Services - Auto Fuel Fuel - All Subcategories
Fuel - Auto Fuel Icon Fuel Icon Fuel Services
yet, on that wiki page, there is no link to
So on this GoogleDocs chart, i can list a yes/no & at what zoom levels
these map features show up on mapnik & cyclemap & osmarender.. or any
other map thats available.
Anyway, im working on the canvec features, so you'll see lots of edits
by me. I think they are MUCH better than they used to be :-) but
help of course is always needed.
