It'd be nice to see amenity=townhall rendered and it is important enough that it should be included in the default map. (likely at a z17,z18 zoom).

It's an active tag, used 45,000+ times, and a relatively uncontroversial tag.

Not sure if I'll have time to get around to proposal a style for it in a pull req, but a note to self just in case.

If you need an icon for the node objects of it, you could use the one found in HDM-cartoCSS (the svg for the icon is within the _maki.svg)

@nebulon42 Do you have any suggestion for an icon? SJJB has town hall, which is rather unclear.


I will look into it. (cross-ref gmgeo/osmic#5)


Maybe a house icon with a simple clock tower?


There is now a first version of town hall (town-hall-16.svg) alongside with an icon for government facilities (government-16.svg).

town hall: town-hall-16
government: government-16


Nice and consistent - the flag is clear enough symbol for me.
