Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


I have created a POI which is a shop called "Angelgeräte Bode". It does not show on the map, while other shops show. Can anyone tell me what I have done wrong?

Nothing! shop=sports is a valid OSM tag, but unfortunately like many other shops does not show up on Mapnik. For it to do so, you will need to create your own maps using software such as Typwiz

You can create a ticket for the main stylesheet. But note that we cannot show every possible feature.

Thanks for your answers. I think it were a nice feature, if users had a menu to show POIs on openstreetmap.org. As far as I see, the only way to find POIs like the mentioned shop is to explicitly search for it or to switch to edit mode. Of course there should be subsets of POIs like "shops" "food" "sports", like in Osmand for example.

@scai:Are you sure that gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto is the right place for such a proposal?

@bazooka2010 Yes. CartoCSS is the new stylesheet for OSM's standard layer.
