Geometry models

Full integration model: partial import is possible if the relation is extended in multiple iterations. Also partial downloads are possible, but those relations will show up as incomplete. This happens when you download data with a bounding box, which does not contain all relation members. --Fsteggink 20:20, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

In my opinion a big disadvantage is that it is still cumbersome to edit route / multipolygon relationships. Ideally OSM should go towards a "full integration model", but this also makes the entry barrier to contribute much higher, so it is actually not so ideal :) Although, with suitable tools this will go better. --Fsteggink 20:21, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
