I have been in the process of adding previously unknown paths and bicycle ways to OSM.
Only update that I seem to be able to get through to basic OSM, OSM Outdoor and OSM Cycle is a piece of a paved road. For example new paths in forest I found are only visible in basic OSM. I have tried all kinds of tagging, but it did not help.
In addition I found no clue on how to add bicycle path like this with a lila color set:
I tried adding the bicycle way to a Role specific cycle route, but it did not change the rendering. Also I would like to understand how to make a basic red background color for a road, which is listed as good for cycling? The red color I am also aftering can be seen in the first picture I sent on the shores of the small lake on the upper right corner.
Second issue was marking walking routes in the forest for example with this blue:
Violet color would also be fine and can consist of dots on closer zooming level, if that is mandatory. I researched tagging of those lines and their XML code and found nothing there that is different from mine.
Is there just a very long delay until updates? Or is there a minimum length of a bicycle route before it can have the highligh or should I create some new Role id for a new bicycle route?
I also had problems with rendering parts of the map I created on basic OSM, on some zoom level my new roads suddenly disappear, or part of them disappears, then closer zooming level they come back again and this continues and varies with no logic if I zoom in or zoom out. I disabled caching.
For viewing maps I use at least three different platforms, ridewithgps, Locus maps and opencyclemap.org on web browser.
For me the editor called iD did not work reliably (keeps on lifting my roads to strange places), so with Potlatch 2 went much better, no strange behaviour anymore.
If I turn on tick “Map Data” I can see all my inserted roads okay, so they are sort of recorded, but not displayed.
Thanks for info.
