[OSM-talk] Mapnik Rendering of Tiled Objects

If I bring in lakes at an earlier zoom in the osm.xml stlye sheet is there any way that you can do any check on the effect on rendering?
Maybe bring in at z9 only first to see, and do no other changes so that it can easily be reverted.
Is there going to be conflict in some areas? For instance Great Lakes come in at 7,8,9 (is this data from other source)?

	The Mapnik osm.xml style file lists how things should be displayed and a
	range of applicable zoom levels. In the case of lakes, it says they
	should only be rendered for zoom 10+.
	If we want lakes rendered at lower zooms then we just need to adjust the
	appropriate range of zooms in the osm.xml. As was discussed on IRC, the
	suggestion currently is to add them for all zooms. This should be OK so
	long as it does not take an unreasonable amount of time to render the
	low zoom tiles.
