mapping services

There are already some services collecting Cell-Id data - some do have osm-layers. For example:

No matter how big, it still won't show up on the map

No matter how big, it still won't show up on the map.

That's because such towers aren't apparently important to the stylesheet makers. Jidanni (talk) 07:53, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

It depends on the map. It appears on any that I produce :)

So what am I doing wrong here? Thanks Jidanni (talk) 04:13, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
Well that's a man_made=communications_tower, rather than a man_made=mast. It doesn't render on OSM's "standard" style, but it looks like no-one has actually asked for it to be rendered: https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=communications_tower&type=Issues . I'm not convinced by the distinctions on http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:man%20made=communications%20tower?uselang=en-GB though - I'm not convinced that actual real mappers mapping real things map them as the creator of that page does.
What my "it depends on the map" comment was trying to say was "there is more than just the standard map" - most people who encounter OSM data see some other rendering of it (such as a Mapbox one in a third-party product). Personally, when I create web maps for my own use, I render all "tower like things" as towers via a lua script. --SomeoneElse (talk) 20:09, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
