A new feature has been added the OpenStreetCam plug-in that allows the visualization of the OSM Elements corresponding to the selected detection or cluster. OSM Elements are the basic components of OpenStreetMap’s conceptual data model of the physical world.
How to use the new feature
The first step is to select a detection or a cluster. If the selected item has OSM Elements, the Matched Data button from the details panel will be enabled.
By pressing the button, the corresponding OSM element will be drawn in the OpenStreetCam layer and it will persist until selection changes or the item is deselected.
There are three possible cases of display:
- The element is of type Node:
- The element is of type Way:
- The element is of type Relation:
Relations have a checkable option under preferences for tag display.
When this checkbox is selected, the tags associated with the OSM element members are displayed on the map.
