What do the little squares denote in the data browser?


For example, https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/23339683 lists nodes in Linea 8 of the Madrid Metro. The first one listed is Nuevos Ministerios (1152687427). It does not have a square to the left and hovering the cursor over it does nothing. There are seven other named nodes which have a square to their left. Hovering the cursor over them produces a little yellow pop-up window that’s just big enough to contain “railway=station”.

Shouldn’t Nuevos Ministerios also have the property “railway=station”. After all, it is the end of the line, isn’t it, so the Linea 8 subways do stop there, don’t they?

Take care,


It looks like that node has been tagged differently from the others: https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1152687427 using the Public Transport Schema. The platform tag is not processed by the data browser.

…incorrectly of course :roll_eyes:
