Ability to chose and display a key value tag related to an object within the map
|External mappaint style
|kml; kmz; gpz; layers
As a contributor to open street maps, I would like to have the ability to chose and have a key value from a layer displayed on the map so that I can read and use that information to help me edit another layer.
- Load a KMZ like the TON_Road.KMZ from http://www.fs.fed.us/r3/gis/gisdata/RoadKMLWest.zip and choose tag like "name" and have it displayed on the map.
- Load a KMZ like the TON_Road.KMZ from http://www.fs.fed.us/r3/gis/gisdata/RoadKMLWest.zip and choose tag like "LANES" and have it displayed on the map.

|[surface_type] which would result in something shown like "3251:1- Single Lane of NAT - NATIVE MATERIAL".
Currently you can only see these tags if you activate the layer, then click on the line, then go scroll through the list of tags to see what the road number and condition is. Then you write that information down or try to remember it, activate the other layer you're editing and then edit that layer with the information you noted or remembered. Very tedious process.
This enhancement would be a huge timesaver and improve accuracy. It would cut the time to make edits to a third of what they take now. It would also eliminate the potential quality problems introduced from taking notes or remember data by having the data shown right there on screen for you to use.
