highway=pedestrian relations disappeared?

Posted by Myrcia on 12 September 2017 in English (English)

can anyone work out what has happened to highway=pedestrian relations as they appear to have stopped being displayed properly on the render

for example here my library has disappeared

and here the centre of my mall has vanished

any ideas?

I'm still computerless in north Queensland, so I can't guess why you're seeing problems. I can only say that in looking at various of my own rather complex highway=pedestrian relations I'm not seeing any render issues e.g. at Tarrases Zoo ( or Quelepa (

These need to be set as multipolygon relations. Set the outer way of the area to be displayed within the highway=pedestrian multipolygon as "inner" in the relation. Or select both and CTRL + B is your friend.

Yes I noticed that the pedestrian polygone has the priority in terms of "layer". It will cover all the things there are inside. What I do in this case it's drawing the pedestrian zone surrounding the buildings without including it or (easier) I select the two polygons (pedestrian and building) with shift key pressed and when appears a "+" I click on it. Then the pedestrian zone shows a border around the buiding inside. I don't know if it's a good advice but it works ;)

Same problem as in .

If you're using JOSM you can select everything involved and Update the relation with just one Click.

Kind regards
