Streets as area.

Dear Friends,

the proposal: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Prop … treet_area
is already over 15.000 times used in the map. See: http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/search … %3Ahighway

The russian OSM Community has already special map which shows streets as areas in highest zoom level:

With regards,
Marek

Re: Streets as area.

If you want to talk to the GB and Ireland communities about this you'd do better posting on the talk-gb (for the island of Great Britain) or talk-ie (for the island of Ireland) mailing lists.  This forum (as you can tell by looking at the posting dates) is relatively little used.

Re: Streets as area.

Now the stepa as area is also supported. We work un the rendering in the number of lanes.
see sketch: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/images/ … oints3.jpg

Btw. We render now Bavaria / Germany as well.
http://osmapa.pl/w/areade/?lat=48.64561 … om=8&ol=BP (just now is thew hourly aktualization of database).
The small server from Poland has limitation. I would be great to render whole EU. Any idea what can we do?

Re: Streets as area.

Small but important change in the specification:
old: area:higway=crossing + crossing=street value e.g. tertiary

New:
area:highway=street value e.g. tertiary + junction=yes/roundabout/y_junction.
