iD display of highway tags

  • email thread :!msg/training/mOn3hLdllfg/EPRpZAL_BwAJ
  • In iD, the label for highway=unclassified changed to "Minor Road", to reduce confusion with the "unclassified" term (used for a road classification). The change could be confusing to new iD mappers, since LearnOSM documentation and HOT Tasking Manager instructions refer to "unclassified" roads.
  • The "unclassified" tag is commonly used in HOT mapping, for rural roads linking villages and settlements.
  • Lively discussion of the potential confusion, particularly for new mappers (see full logs).
  • Bryan (from iD team) will revise the iD label to "Minor/Unclassified Road", which is expected to minimize any confusion. He will expedite the revision, so as to minimize potential confusion.
