#10870 closed enhancement (fixed)

Preset for junction=yes

Reported by: sommerluk Owned by: Klumbumbus
Priority: normal Milestone: 14.12
Component: Internal preset Version:
Keywords: junction Cc:



It would be great to have a preset for junction=yes (a junction as such – independent of its type – see for details). It could be in the same group like roundabout and ford (Street/Street/last group)

Applicable to: nodes, areas
Fields: a field for name=*
Pitfalls: for translation, probably it makes sense to comment that “junction” means here not exclusivly crossroads, but any type of junctions (T junction, Y junctions, Spaghetti junctions...)

Use case: In some countries (for example Korea) we have junctions with names, and they are even more important thant the street names.

It is already under Highways -> Streets -> Construction, but nobody would search there.

I fear a bit that people tag every junction with junction=yes. However this is not useful in countries where junctions usually do not have names. Should we add a text to the preset somthing like: "Used only in some countries with named junctions"

Are there more countries except Korea with named junctions? Othwerwise a Korean specific preset in Presets would maybe be the better choice.

I think we could add a "Named Junction" preset entry to make it clear.

Although not as common as in Korea and Japan, it appears to also exist in the USA:

And remove it from the “construction” preset.

Here comes an example preset…

So a junction=roundabout can't be 'named'? If there is a name tag on the comprising ways, is it the name of the street/road, not the junction?

comment:13 Changed 8 years ago by sommerluk

Hm, sometimes it is difficult to differentiate between the name of the roundabout itself and the name of the roads that build up the roundabout…

Yes, I would say that the name tag of a junction=roundabout + highway=* is the name of the highway itself (and usually it is rendered on the road itself).

If you tag something in a country where road junctions names serve for local orientation, you can nevertheless add an element (independent from the junction road element) with junction=yes. Example: (and usually rendered as horizontal text).
