As Thomas already said the rules were based on the tagging scheme from
the Birmingham import. They were also devised with the idea of
implementing a web-based bus-stops merging tool. However this idea has
been dropped as it is very easy to "merge" bus stops within josm.

I discussed a change of the colour scheme with Peter Miller a couple of
weeks ago on the West Midlands list:


At the moment I am moving to a new server and do not have time to do
any changes on NOVAM. But I plan to implement new rules in October.

It would be interesting to know which rules you used for your overlay.

I never thought about the posibility of printing from NOVAM. I will see
if I can create a stylesheet for printing when I find time.

The NOVAM is updated every five minutes from the OSM database (There
was a problem a couple of days ago, when the update process crashed but
this is fixed now).
