Hi everyone

I just added some geometries to OSM. Polygons and lines are now visible in the brwoser. However, the point geometries (for instance parking garages) are not displayed: https://www.openstreetmap.org/query?lat=47.18589&lon=8.45825#map=19/47.18588/8.45911

In the editing mode they are visible: https://www.openstreetmap.org/edit#map=18/47.18615/8.45898

How can I get to be showed in the browser?

Thank you for your help in advance!

Cheers, Jana

I assume you mean https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/10041358339#map=19/47.18590/8.45871 I suspect the issue may be the layer tag. Note that the layer value is defintely wrong in any case if it is lower than an object covering it it should get a negative value or at least one that is lower than the other object.

Note that layer tags are for indicating the relative ordering of objects, not for indicating the level/floor the object is on, that would require the level tag.

See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:layer and https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:level

Hi Simon

Thanks a lot for your answer! Is there any way I can find out what level I must define?

I also defined point geometries of other types (e.g. parking_entry (https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/10041349956) and noexit (https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/10041389399)). These do not have a layer value. How do I go about this?

After some more checking I suspect the reason why the icons are not rendered is that one of the many other objects that are layered on top of each other there are hiding them.

As a tendency I wouldn't be concerned that they are not being shown on a specific map, the objects are in the database and there is nothing specifically wrong with them.

It looks like amenity=parking + parking=underground is not rendered in the standard style ¹:

openstreetmap-carto#3600 Hide underground parking

The positions of the nodes 10041358339 and 10041276960 suggest that those are actually entrances and should probably be tagged as amenity=parking_entrance + parking=underground (those should be rendered).

¹ found by searching "underground" in the source code repository of the standard style: https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto/search?q=underground
