#9598 closed defect (fixed)

Bogus "Areas share segment" warning by validator

Reported by: mkoniecz Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone: 14.02
Component: Core validator Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Maybe there are cases where warning like this is useful but for now I encountered it only for buildings where it is correct tagging.

Example - entire old city of Kraków: (see and,_Krak%C3%B3w)

Maybe after excluding building=* this rule will start reporting something useful.

If areas share a long segment, it might be better to introduce multipolygons. This is the idea of this informational message. Thus, I'd close this as invalid.

comment:3 Changed 7 years ago by Don-vip

Mmmm in that case we're talking about adjacent buildings that share a segment, yes, but converting all of them to multipolygons doesn't bring much. This is a normal way of tagging buildings in urban areas, I agree it should not raise any message, even informational.

Why do we have this check to begin with ?

comment:4 Changed 7 years ago by simon04

Right, we could exclude buildings. In my area, some large forest areas are split at artificial points to make the way polygon smaller in size. Instead, they share a long+complex segment (e.g. way/146342814 + way/146342845). This test identifies such cases.

We also could change this test to generate a warning only if a way segment consisting of at least 4 nodes is shared.

comment:6 Changed 7 years ago by Don-vip

In France you can easily find buildings with small segments and more than 4 nodes. Think of buildings adjacent to churches for example, like here:

In 6862/josm:

see #9598 - Validator: report "Overlapping ways" only if at least 3 segments are shared

Do we want a separate handing for buildings?

Replying to simon04:

Do we want a separate handing for buildings?

It is much better right now, but not still perfect in urban areas, there's still too much noise :) So yes I think we can ignore warnings when both areas are buildings.

comment:10 Changed 7 years ago by Don-vip

Or maybe just when one of them is a building. There's plenty of areas drawn alongside a building (parkings, gardens, etc.). We could also ignore barriers (see #9695).

Is it possible to mention "it might be better to introduce multipolygons" in message? It is not obvious, I wanted to again report this bug because I had no idea what should be fixed.

I know that it would mean additional work for translators.

Please don't reopen defects closed long ago to request something else. Please open a new enhancement for this, or simply update the online documentation for this warning.
