Ideas for future improvements

In response to the RFC, these are some open issues I've encountered while implementing pitch marking rendering:

  • overlapping lines present in sport=multi pitches
  • marking colors.

However, this is not a suggestion to add these right away. I think this is a solid proposal as is and it would probably be best to get it accepted first – no need to get bogged down with too much additional topics at the moment. Future extensions are always possible, after all. --Tordanik 19:27, 26 July 2018 (UTC)

More values

I'd suggest four values for this, rather than a simple yes/no:

  • pitch_markings=permanent: for permanent markings such as might be found on an artificial-turf field.
  • pitch_markings=temporary: for markings that are refreshed on an as-needed basis. Markings might not be present on the off-season.
  • pitch_markings=yes: for when the permanence of markings isn't known.
  • pitch_markings=no: for fields without markings, such as a soccer field consisting of just a pair of goals.

Tracks may also have markings as you can see on the title photo for leisure=track:

-> Perhaps better use a tag name like "sport_markings" and allow to use it also for tracks? sport=* is a required tag too. --Hufkratzer (talk) 11:33, 27 July 2018 (UTC)

Absence of pitch markings

With the recent changes to the proposal, how should I map the fact that a pitch does not have markings at all? --Tordanik 15:55, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
