lol, I agree with your colleagues: those pint glasses are unacceptably bad taste
(btw, mosques and synagogues are still rendered with a Christian cross in Mapnik.)

Asunto: [OSM-talk] Pubs on mapnik layer - can we remove them?


I've been promoting OSM in the charity I work for (www.bioregional.com),
especially now the export facility makes it trivial. We'd like to use OSM
maps in our publications, but several of my colleagues are reluctant
because there are pubs all over the maps!

Would it be possible to remove them from the default mapnik layer
altogether, or to produce Yet Another Layer that is more professional

We don't really want to get into running our own Osmarender / mapnik
set-up, I'm sure lots of other businesses & NGOs would like to use the
export function. I know we all love our pubs but it does hamper the
usefulness of OSM in one of those areas where it should beat the
competition hands down - legal copies of nice, detailed maps.

Kind regards,
