New category: Kerbs

Submitted by plepe on Thu, 12/29/2022 - 09:02

This new category shows kerbs (the edge where a road meets a sidewalk). Read more about this in the OpenStreetMap Wiki. The category uses the colours from the Wiki page. Popups will show additional information: type of kerb (lowered, raised, ...), they wheelchair accessibility (if set), if the kerb has tactile paving and the height.

Writing categories in YAML; new Twig filters (v5.1)

Submitted by plepe on Sat, 07/30/2022 - 20:15

From now on, it's possible to write categories in YAML format. This is much easier than JSON and allows for comments. You can find a few example categories in the documentation on Github. There's a repository with these examples in the OpenStreetBrowser Development environment, which you can fork (you can load this under the big ➕ icon on OpenStreetBrowser).

Communication category now includes parcel lockers

Submitted by plepe on Sun, 01/23/2022 - 14:38

Parcel lockers are a newly approved feature in OpenStreetMap. They are now included in the "Communication" category with a box symbol. I also included the deprecated tags vending=parcel_pickup;parcel_mail_in, vending=parcel_pickup and vending=parcel_mail_in. These will render with a bright red symbol to indicate deprecation, also there's a warning in the popup.
