Naming city squares in Mannheim

Hey y'all!

I live in Mannheim and would like to name the interesting square-like architecture, so that users can see it from birds-eye perspective which square they are on.

Right now, its difficult so see which square you are looking on:

Anybody an idea how to deal with that? Didnt find any "big capital letters" to put on the map in the Editor.

Thanks for answers.

Re: Naming city squares in Mannheim

Hi Simon,

the squares are already in the map data. E. g.

The standard map does not render them, but others, for example, do. It's up to each renderer/map/app to decide what to display and what not.

Welcome to join the German sub-forum on this board for German-centric questions.
