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


I'm trying to fix the cycle map of the Colorado Springs are (Colorado, USA). At the moment something strange happens with the City of Fountain (a small city to the south of Colorado Springs) having 6 labels scattered quite liberally, and 2 Colorado Springs labels.

Is there a way to consolidate the names to just one each? See link below.

Actually, most of Colorado seems to have this problem. See Commerce City in Denver:


However, bizarrely Denver is not labelled at all.

This is an issue with the rendering used by the Cycle Map and Transport Map styles which are maintained by Andy Allan. If you look at the other "standard" map layers on OSM.org, they do not have this issue. If you want it fixed, apparently the best way to go is to https://trac.openstreetmap.org/query?component=opencyclemap. I think Andy is also a participant on this forum.

It is undoubtedly related to the fact that Fountain has both exclaves and enclaves: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?relation=113002#map=12/38.6972/-104.7335&layers=C
