JOSM/Plugins/PT Assistant/Double split map mode
- 1 Double split map mode
- 1.1 bridge
- 1.2 tunnel
- 1.3 traffic_calming
- 1.4 bus_bay
- 1.4.1 Here there are two bus stops on each side of the street. Their bus bays have some overlap (fairly uncommon corner case, but you will see it's supoorted nicely):
- 1.4.2 After enabling the double split map mode, click on the way where the first node should be added. The way lights up.
- 1.4.3 Then move to where the second node should be added and click on the way.
- 1.4.4 A dialog box opens. If the way is not crossing any other highway, railway or waterway bus_bay=right will be proposed (in countries where cars drive on the left, this is bus_bay=left). It may still be wrong, as it obvously depends on the direction of the way as well.
- 1.4.5 When applying by pressing OK, the way is split on the new nodes and bus_bay=right is added to the middle part.
- 1.4.6 Now, with the double split map mode still enabled, add another node in the middle of the bus bay.
- 1.4.7 And another outside of it.
- 1.4.8 A new dialog box opens, showing the opposite of the existing bus_bay value, in this case left.
- 1.4.9 The overlapping part automatically gets bus_bay=both.
Double split map mode
We are introducing a new map mode for JOSM, if you install the PT_Assistant plugin. It provides a convenient way to create bridges, tunnels, bus bays and traffic calming tables. Normally you would have to add a node, deselect, add another node to a way. Select both nodes, split the way, select the middle part and then set tags. There had to be a simpler way to accomplish that! So I asked Biswesh Mohapatra to code this as a challenge for GSoC 2018.
