ID and footbrige

Hi!
I've noticed a few places where a footbrige is mapped as a way with highway=crossing + traffic_calming=table
instead of highway=footway + bridge=yes.
The mappers used ID, so it seems that this editor is somehow misleading the mappers.
Any ideas why?

Re: ID and footbrige

It's in iD a "Raised Pedestrian Crossing" or in german "Erhöhter Fußgängerüberweg".

Whithout the tags I couldn't also imagine what is meant. Maybe the mapper thought a bridge is also raised. smile


OSM sollte sein wie Bienen oder Ameisen, intelligent und einfach strukturiert. Tatsächlich erinnert es mich aber an Lemminge. Dem, der am lautesten schreit schenkt man Aufmerksamkeit, ehe alles im Abgrund verschwindet. Man würde lachen, hätte man sich nicht soviel Mühe gemacht.

Re: ID and footbrige

Hm, I am not familiar with the workflow in ID. Why would a mapper change a way that is correctly mapped as highway=footway + bridge=yes to this wrong tagging? I've seen this change in several places and from different mappers.
And what goes wrong when they add a new way like here

Re: ID and footbrige

I'd be very surprised if anyone associated with iD development reads this sub-forum (the main iD developer has posted once elsewhere in the forum) - I'd suggest raising an issue at https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/issues .

Re: ID and footbrige

If I got that right, the preset table.json is wrong, it should not contain highway=crossing.

Another question is why users change the tagging of a highway=footway + bridge=yes.
My idea is that they look at the picture in the upper left corner which show a "normal" footway. They know that the way
is a bridge and maybe they expect to see such a picture instead.

Re: ID and footbrige

To understand why someone changes the tagging, I think you should ask them. The others can only guess smile
