OpenStreetMap uses specific tags to describe route symbols that are used as waymarker (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:osmc:symbol).
I would like to translate that key syntax into a symbol geometry with QGIS similar to the OSM composer does (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_Composer). But the only idea I get into my mind is:
- build SVG-symbols for every possible combination (with Inkscape)
- Name every symbol with the relating key (like
- Use data defined override at an SVG marker line, where the SVG markers path is set up with the
osmc:symbolfield from the attribute table
That seems to be a not very elegant solution: Too static, too much work and too inflexible.
I'm looking for a better solution. Any ideas?
