I would like to see underground gas pipelines show up on the standard openstreetmaps.org page just as powerlines do.
They show up on the edit screen but on on the standard openstreetmaps.org page. Why is this? IT would be nice if we could configure the items we want to display.
Also, the pipelines are not rendered on the garmin even though they’re is a type 28 in the typ file. Any thoughts>
Question: you say “Well, man_made=pipeline is not in the default mkgmap stylesheet, so therefore not rendered as it would clutter the map.
There are many other map providers, maybe they are rendering it: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_ … n/Download”
The question is this: do the maps I download from http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/ contain the pipeline/powerline data? If yes, to display the pipeline/powerline data on a garmin, can I simply add the man_made=pipeline to the typ file in basecamp & then see the pipeline/powerline?
Sorry I was wrong, I was looking for the string ‘pipeline’, but there are wildcards in the style syntax so those pipelines are rendered indeed with 0x28. I dont know why they dont show up in your Garmin though. If you use a typ file you can make them visible.
So I have been working on this issue and Today I downloaded
from geofabrik. Using the same stylefile & typ file I generated each of the maps with splitter and mkgmap using identical parameters.
powerlines and pipelines are set to display at resolution 17 in both.
Then I installed them in basecamp using mapsettoolkit.
when I look at the nj set in basecamp, the pipelines and powerlines display properly.
when i look at the northeast set, the pipelines and powerlines display BUT there seem to be 2 slightly versions of each line
is it possible that the 2 different files downloaded from geofabrik on thye same day and time contain different data?
if it would help I could provide screenshots of what I am talking about
