Description (last modified by AM909)
The validator reports "way node end near other way" when it shouldn't - specifically for objects of different types. Examples:
- A road (highway=*) that ends near an admin boundary (boundary=administrative + place=city + ...)
- A road (highway=*) that ends near a river (waterway=river).
- A road (highway=*) that ends near a power line (power=line). This probably doesn't happen if the power line has layer > that of the road, but few people seem to do this, and the validator doesn't report power lines crossing roads of the same layer, so it is apparently assumed that power lines are layer=6.
- A fence (barrier=fence) that ends near a road (highway=*).
Basically, it seems this check is designed to find ways that should intersect, but don't. It should, therefore, limit itself to types of ways that should actually intersect (like those with the same main key, though there may be some others).
