#619 closed enhancement (fixed)

downloaded area shown as amalgamated rectangles

A cosmetic improvement to the way it shows the 'downloaded area' (yellow lines), would be to amalgamate the rectangles.

Not sure of the maths behind this, or whether it would be too computationally expensive / too much hassle to implement, but here's the idea anway

Currently:       Amalgamated:
.-------.        .-------.    
|       |        |       |    
|    .------.    |       '---.
|    |  |   |    |           |
'----|--'   |    '----.      |
     |      |         |      |
     '------'         '------'

Purely cosmetic really, but it would mean these lines stay out of the way a bit better, while still providing the important reminder of which area is loaded in.

Note that if you zoom out and download again, your first downloaded area may be contained entirely within the rectangle of the second downloaded area, hence the first rectangle will disappear. It no longer conveys any useful information (Actually that might be a simpler check to implement on its own, for an intial enhancement)

The boundary lines are not drawn in recent JOSM revisions, but the effect of visualizing the downloaded area is as suggested by the reporter of this ticket.

Think this was fixed recently, when changing from boundary box style to solid fill of surrounding non-loaded area.

seen in revision (1073?), 1075

still works this way in 1081 (latest to date)
