OpenStreetMap Carto (default map on OSM.org)

I think we miss the place to discuss map rendering, which is probably the most popular use of OSM data (along with routing). We also don't have  a place for general discussions on osm-carto and we're constantly abusing issue/pull request tickets for this.

General informations about default OSM.org style can be found here:

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Standard_tile_layer

...and here you can see the current project activity:

YM if I had an idea for better rendering of tree_row (just a random example...), I should post it here first? Or is it about "how to render ..." technically?

Re: OpenStreetMap Carto (default map on OSM.org)

Technical problems with osm-carto can be discussed more efficiently on the GitHub issue tracker, like this one:

https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstr … ssues/1753

I  have created this forum for discussing general problems and exchanging bigger ideas. For example direct reason for doing it in the end was a discussion started by e-mail about how much things we're trying to show and what do we feel about it. I think it's pretty big topic and sending mails between just team members is not a proper communication channel.

Re: OpenStreetMap Carto (default map on OSM.org)

Wat was the outcome of this mail-discussion, or is it still going on?

I'm not sure, unfortunatelly. Basically just statements with no proposed solutions or precise goals.

Re: OpenStreetMap Carto (default map on OSM.org)

There is a discussion about generalization in rendering (especially in osm-carto, but not limited to this style):

If you're interested what it's all about, take a look at this article:
