#12756 closed enhancement (duplicate)

There is no "man_made=mast" in pre-sets, which renders well on the OSM map, but there's "man_made=tower", which is not renedered at all

What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. Add in JOSM man_made=tower;
  2. add tower:type=communication
  3. upload

What is the expected result?

A communication tower is shown on the map with the proper icon.

What happens instead?

man_made=tower is not rendered with any icon at all

Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if possible.

Due to the power of defaults a lot of communications masts or towers are mapped with "man_made=tower" tag. This tag is not rendered with any icon on the OSM map.

However the "man_made=mast" is absent in the JOSM pre-sets, at the same time it renders well on the map with the proper icon.

This rendering with the icon is useful in numerous cases:

  • knowing location of the communication mast (or tower) in rural or in wilderness areas is beneficial, as it is the place where one can send and receive messages, calls, etc.
  • for RC and manned low altitude aviation, as there is a risk of a collision with the communication mast (or tower) and its strong electromagnetic emissions may interfere with the radio control signal and/or the navigation system (on-board magnetic compass).

I would suggest to add the "man_made=mast" to the presets, with a short text explaining the rendering with the icon issue.
