[OSM-talk] buildings and roads

Equally roads don't usually run over buildings - which could be case if
reversed. Basically auto-rendering of these two can not be correct for
all cases/zooms.

Needs intelligence to say "nudge that building away from the road in
this instance" - later?

Subject: [OSM-talk] buildings and roads


Just wondering. Shouldn't buildings be rendered behind roads. Currently
buildings are drawn above a road when the road is wide like a highway or
major road. Obviously buildings don't cut into roads. If the road layer
is on top this won't happen.
