JOSM Workflow

Setup

  • Activate the following in from JOSM preferences > Map Settings
  • Map Paint Styles: Lanes and road attributes
  • Tagging Presets: lane attributes
  • Filter out non road features with boundary: | leisure: | landuse: | waterway: | amenity: | natural: | building:
  • Add inverse filter: highway=motorway|trunk|primary|secondary|*link|motorway_link or untagged
  • Read http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:turn:lanes
  • Read https://github.com/mapbox/mapping/wiki/Mapping-guide-for-turn-lanes-from-imagery
  • Install the 🔪 tool in JOSM to easily split the roads: https://gist.github.com/jothirnadh/a10daeaef1498537ea56f0a65f7fdbc2

Mapping

  • Check the roads for turn lanes at exits and entry points
  • Split the road into segments based on the total number of lanes for the segment
  • For each road segment tag the turn lanes based on the road markings in the direction of the way. Eg. turn:lanes=left|through|right. See OSM turn:lanes
  • For bi-directional segments, use turn:lanes:backward= and turn:lanes:forward= to specify turn lanes in each direction.
  • Verify correct tagging using the Lane attributes style

Issues to keep in mind:

  • For QA and edge cases in turn lanes mapping and how to handle them(parking lanes, splitting roads for start and end of turn lanes, handling of dual carriageways, etc) look into the QA for turn lane data document.
