Bug in roundabouts
See the current screenshot: http://img856.imageshack.us/img856/2451/j2c2.png The mentioned way is
junction=roundabout highway=secondary direction=anti-clockwise
but the direction of the route of the plugin is not respecting the direction. (If i mark the roundabout as oneway=yes then the routing plugin won't take it as a way for routing at all.
Idea for enhancement: use the routing to check/create/modify route relations
Purpose: Let the router collect the ways that should be in a route relation. For easy mapping of defined routes (e.g. bus), not for a bus-operator to invent new routes.
Easy interface: drag some special via-nodes to give the router a tight frame, since the routes are given by reality.
Help managing e.g. bus routes, also cycle, hiking relations. Some co-working with the existing relation maybe good, e.g. just add routing for the missing parts. Tell the router which relation this is all about. Maybe start from the relation editor and assume the routing plugin as a helper for that.
I thought about this when reading in mailing lists about bus-relations (all ways vs. just the nodes in the relation), my idea is something in between: mapper maps the bus_stops the router finds the ways, the mapper checks the result, then uploads the relation.
It seems useful and also feasible. --Peb12345 14:40, 30 April 2012 (BST)
