#14532 new enhancement

check for invalid "layer" tagging on tunnel=* and bridge=*

Reported by: mdk Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Core validator Version: latest
Keywords: Cc: naoliv


I found several wrong taggings for tunnel=* and bridge=*. For example I found lots of tunnel=* without layer=-1, but instead with ele=-1, level=-1 or width=-1. Theoretically also -2, -3 and so on, but I only saw -1. The same with bridge=*, but positive numbers. Sometimes the are also fixes by adding the missing layer=* tag, but leaving the other ones. In my opinion negative width values are always a failure. Only positive width values on highway=* and waterway=* could be valid.

It would be nice, if the validator would warn about ways with

  • waterway=*, tunnel=* level=-1
  • waterway=*, tunnel=* ele=-1
  • waterway=*, tunnel=* width=-1
  • highway=*, bridge=* level=1
  • highway=*, bridge=* ele=1

and offer correction to layer=*

Could you give numbers how often these cases appear in the database?

[waterway][tunnel][level] = 3095 ways (2992 without layer)
It seems that level is always wrong here (having layer or not)

[waterway][tunnel][ele] = 187 ways (91 with ele = -1)
I think that it also doesn't make sense to have ele in waterways

For width = -1 JOSM already detects and warns about the invalid negative value.

[highway][bridge][level] = 6956 ways
Randomly picked some and they all should be layer instead.

[highway][bridge][ele] = 1014 ways
Random picks also seemed wrong usage of ele
