I am such a newbie. I have started by using the simple editor to annotate number of lanes, and bicycle lanes. I loaded JOSM and OMG:D its mindblowing! How do I annotate left turn lanes, should I use the simple editor or JOSM? Any hints from wonderful people would be much appreciated. I’m focusing around way 538852155.
Prior to discovering the turn lanes plug in, I’d set all the above tagging manually. A bit of a pain.
By the way, there is another plug in for JOSM that shows you the result of the change lanes and turn lanes tagging. Makes it very easy to see at a glance if you have the tagging correct. Look under “turn lanes” in your alphabetical list of JOSM plug-ins.
Thank you so much for the info. It’s just what I want to be able to do.
I am on windows and loaded plugins for turnlanes-tagging (and tageditor) and turnlanes. After restarting JOSM, I can open a window for turnlanes (its blank with edit & validate buttons) but I don’t see how to open a window for turnlanes-tagging. There is a video tutorial on github for turnlanes-tagging but it uses a checked box in Map Paint Styles labeled “Lane and road attributes.”
I know you are on a Mac, but do you have some idea of how to get “Lane and road attributes” to show in “Map Paint Styles” on windows?
I believe the turn lane display plug in displays the change:lanes=* tagging too. At least I think that is what is doing the trick for me when mapping the solid (do not cross) lines elsewhere. But I will admit that I haven’t bothered adding change:lanes to the turn:lanes I’ve added. I’ve mostly used that tagging where lane restrictions continue for a longer distance than a typical turn lane.
I guess the more detailed way to tag a turn lane would be to break it into two sections, the first incrementing the lane count and tagged with turn:lane. The second section closer to the intersection continuing the lane count and turn:lane tagging but adding a change:lane tag indicating you are not supposed to change into or out of the turn lane from the through lane(s).
I am not aware of a JOSM plug in that assists in the actual tagging of change:lane values. But since I see them displayed on my JOSM and the only plug in I’ve enabled that seems like it could be doing that is the turn lane display plug in, I assume it is the one rendering that tagging.
