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

When using Osmand to look if a public transport platform ist buggy/wheelchair friendly you get mostly 2 points.

  1. for the platform Area (which is dominant on rendering and selction)
  2. the POI for the station/halt

Mostly both points contain different information, sometimes even conflicting. After consulting the wiki I am not sure if merging the POI into the area for these small stations (1 platform, 2 rails, no switch) is the right fix.


What is the right fix for this? I would suggest merging the POI into the area of the platform. Using 2 points is very counter intuitive.

In my understanding this is a different problem, since they are talking about stopping locations, which are points on the railways. If you have a look at my example on wheelmap, the stops are not shown.
