    I’ve noticed that a farmers market nearby that is visible on OSM is not visible on the London map in Pocket Earth. Any suggestions why?

    Dear Paul,

    I’m not exactly sure what you mean by “farmers market”. This could be different taggings in OSM, so best is you post the node number, or a link to OSM.

    To understand what’s behind: OSM is a very free-format database. Every renderer – like openstreetmap.org or PE – will have to make a choice what is shown and what not. PE generally shows a lot more than openstreetmap.org (due to the possibility to switch on/off map layers, to keep the map readable).

    So, if you refer to

    shop=farm (as in example http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/2698586971): This is shown in openstreetmap.org as a dot, but it’s not shown in PE. (I already requested the feature to show ALL shop=xxx with a generic shop icon if xxx is not known to PE.)

    amenity=marketplace (as in example http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/2198762188): This NOT shown in openstreetmap.org NOR in PE.

    What is your example?

    => In general, if a feature is important to you, request it here to be shown (by specifying the OSM-tagging scheme and giving some examples).. Sometimes, this is taken into account by the developpers, at least as a “Minor POI” (e.g. a POI having no proper icon.).

    Good luck, nounours
