#10873 closed enhancement (fixed)

add name=* field to the preset for highway=traffic_signals

Description (last modified by Don-vip)

In Japan, traffic signals have official names. These names serve for orientation in the local area and are even more important on a map than street names.

As far as I know, Japan is the only country with named traffic signals (though I’m not 100% sure):

osmwiki:Tag:highway%3Dtraffic_signals#Named_traffic_signals.2Ftraffic_signal_systems_.28Japan.E2.80.A6.29

A Japanese specific preset could be an option. But maybe we could also just add name=* to the existing preset for highway=traffic_signals – as very last element?

We already have country-specific optional tags (mainly in addr:* preset), so it's perfectly fine to add an optional name attribute to the existing preset.

It is really that the name applies to the traffic signal? Or is it really the name of the junction? That was also covered recently in ticket #10870.

Replying to aceman:

It depends of the country where you are mapping.

In Korea (and, though less often, in some other countries like Ivory Coast), you have named junctions. This junction may have a traffic signal, or it may be a simple junction without any traffic signal (the latter is quite usual in Ivory Coast).

In Japan (and, as far as I know, in no other country of the world) you have named traffic signals. That means that even traffic signals can have names, that are only for pedestrian crossing and that are on the open road without any junction.
