#12835 closed defect (invalid)

merge overlap isn't removing the overlapping way anymore (nor creating multipolygons)

Reported by: naoliv Owned by: team
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Plugin merge-overlap Version:
Keywords: multipolygon Cc:


With the attached example file, select both polygons and then run merge overlap.

Start noticing one thing: it asks how we want to solve the natural key conflict (while in fact it shouldn't, since the shared way won't have any tag).

Choose any value and apply.

Where the ways were overlapped note how we now have 2 ways (while we should have only one way + 2 multipolygons).

I tried to find a description reg. this plugin. I have no idea what the expected result is.

Still using the above example, select both areas and then Merge overlap

JOSM with then display this:

What I would expect is to have the two overlapping parts merged into one, without being asked about anything (and left without any value).
This new common way should shared with/by both areas (using 2 multipolygons also automatically created by the plugin).

See expected.osm for the expected result.
I don't know if creating two multipolygons like this is still fully within the purposes of the plugin, however.

I see no hint in the source that this plugin could create a multipolygon relation.

And I honestly don't remember why I created this ticket with priority Major. At least looking at that priority now it is very unreasonable. Sorry.

Do you mind if I convert this ticket to enhancement? (so that one day, who knows, it might be possible to overlap ways shared by areas, already dealing with relations/multipolygons, etc)

I think what you are looking for is implemented in the reltoolbox plugin
