I wanted to ask for your help. Yesterday I added some emergency phones around a lake in Austria. The data seems to be there (see screenshots) but something went wrong because on the standard layer I am not able to see any of the phones on the map.

In edit mode they are displayed correctly (even the name is beside the image).

Is it necessary to draw an area first and then place a point on it? What could be wrong here?alt textalt textalt text

Is there a list of displayed objects on the map?

Hi, there's nothing wrong with your mapping. Not all features are rendered on the standard map. There is talk to have emergency phones added to the rendering.

(in answer to the second part of the question) the best current map legend for the "standard" layer is probably here. Other tile layers are available at and many more elsewhere. I'm sure that many of them will display "emergency" keys.

Your mapping looks fine. Unfortunately emergency phones aren't currently displayed on the map. There is talk about adding it ( see this feature request ). But it would require some database changes.
