Known Problems

Plan.at Imports

The main problem while trying to increase quality of OSM data in tyrol is definitely the importet plan.at data. Instead of fixing the data e.g. by using the yahoo areal imagery, many unexperienced users just add their own roads/paths/trails with potlatch using the yahoo overlay. one of the reasons for this is that plan.at roads are not rendered by both mapnik and osmarender due to a not supported tag "highway:plan.at". This seems to be a hint to us map makers (in addition to the "fixme=*" tag) to rearrange/adjust paths.

Ok, plan.at data has not the best accuracy, yet it contains valuable information on streetnames. losing those data would be non-productive. so think about repositioning plan.at data instead of adding new roads/paths. In my opinionI think we have to find a way to either delete the plan.at data at some critical places or we try to fix them. In view mode you won't see many of the plan.at datasets due to a not recognized tagging "highway:plan.at=*". you will see them in edit mode.
