The mapping conventions for Lutang.
Lutang's city and municipal governments use a variety of addressing and house numbering systems. But there are always exceptions. The addressing systems of Lutang can be bluntly described as a hot mess of complicated systems with exceptions that the Lutang postal worker must memorize to work with the Lutang Post.
The format is:
- [N] Street, [Quarter/Village], [City], [Province], Lutang
For Bagong Bandila, it is common practice not to write "Greater Bandila Area". But for other towns near BB, writing it is common.
- This location in Limingan is located at: 50 Archanta Street, Limingan, Bagong Bandila, Lutang
The city governments of Lutang just can't agree on how to number buildings. However, there are many patterns and behaviors that almost everyone has agreed on.
- Buildings get the address of the street where their main entrance is.
- If a building has multiple entrances of equal prominence, higher road classifications always win.
- Compounds of buildings share one house number. Separator determined by
lem:addr:compound_separatorEach building in the compound gets another number, like 69A (
dash), or 69.1 (
- Sided evenness: One side gets odd numbers and the others have even numbers.
- N-center: Instead of going from the beginning of a street to the end, you center the numbers on N and work from there as you map the buildings. Check
This table is non-exhaustive. Please check
lem:* tags on administrative boundary relations.
Lutang's administrative division system is closely modelled after that of the real Philippines. OSM Philippines admin_level= conventions thus apply to Lutang. Always use relations to define these boundaries.
|Lutang||N/A||National border||Regions||Provinces||Sangguniang Panlalawigan districts (if any)||Cities and Municipalities/Towns||Sangguniang Panlungsod/Bayan districts (if any)||Other administrative districts (if any)||Zones (if any)||Barangays||Sitios/Puroks (only if boundaries are defined)|

Urban areas, such as Bagong Bandila, are mapped in English, while rural areas are mapped in Tagalog. Use
name:tl as needed. The main
name= field can be bilingual, in transitional areas, or simply if the mapper feels like it.
Example for Bagong Bandila:
name:tl-Tglg=ᜊᜄᜓ︀ᜅ᜴ ᜊᜈ᜴ᜇᜒᜎ(Tagalog in Baybayin)
Do not translate Tagalog names;
When using bilingual
name=* fields, the following language pairs are acceptable:
|English / Tagalog in Latin||Anna's Road / Daanan ni Anna|
|Tagalog in Latin / Tagalog in Baybayin||Daanan ni Anna / ᜇᜀᜈᜈ᜴ ᜈᜒ ᜀᜈ᜴ᜈ|
The order is important. English/Tagalog bilingual names are written with the English name first, and then the Tagalog name.
name=Daanan ni Anna / Anna's Road
Translations to use:
|Railway yard||Paradahang pang-tren|
Embassies should use English for
name, with separate
name:tl tags, and an additional tag with the embassy's name in the language of the receiving country ( has
Help:Tagging prescribes the use of
name:ingerish as opposed to
name:en. This is to be disregarded. Continue to use
name:tl. As a compromise, both
name:ingerish can be used; however using only
name:ingerish without a
name:en tag is unacceptable.
The only exception is for conlangs with no real-world equivalent, use
name:languageName as prescribed; for example
||Lutang itself, at admin level 2|
||Provinces at admin level 4 like Huntsman (place at geographic center or as close to it as possible)|
||Cities at admin level 6|
||Municipalities that are not considered cities|
||Barangays (urban ones are quarters and rural ones are villages)|
||Very small places|
||Districts in cities (|
Secondaries link smaller towns and villages and are used as main streets in large cities, while tertiaries are used for the main roads of gated communities. Finally, there is residential; which is for access to residential buildings. Unclassified roads render the same as residentials, but are used when there is no residence along a street.
Lutang's expressways (motorways) are numbered EN. These numbers are incremented and are thus in order of expressway construction. National roads that are not expressways begin with NN. North-south roads use even numbers while west-east ones use odd numbers. Roads that go both directions, or ring roads like Bagong Bandila's N69, can use either an odd or even number.
Roads may have additional province-specific designations (AA N with a space!) in addition to their National N number. If an E or N road passes through a province, its number under the province-specific designations may not be used for other roads except itself. The N8 runs through Kendeng and thus has the provincial ref KD 8.
When roads are represented by two parallel ways; a certain amount of spacing is expected.
Lutang design standards require each motorway lane to be 4 meters wide. The median is usually 3 meters, so your 2-lane motorway will have 20 meters between both ways.
Lutang's railway network uses 1435mm standard gauge. The distance between the platform edge and track centerline should be at least 1.8m, for loading gauge.
Lutang Lines, the passenger railroad company has electrified most of its network.
The four freight companies of Lutang are:
- Batis Island Railroad (BIR), serving Batis Island
- Huntsman Rail (HR), serving Huntsman Island
- Gahak & Siritangan Railway (GSR), serving the northern portion of Main Island
- Solidago & Araminta Railway (SAR), serving the southern portion of Main Island
All four run their own private lines; but the GSR and SAR sometimes run on LL lines where LL trains are prioritized. LL services on Batis & Huntsman run on BIR & HR tracks respectively; where freight has priority. Outside of the Lutang Lines network; tracks are mostly unelectrified. LL's electrification is 25kv 60hz overhead line.
In order of precedence, name rail lines as:
- [OPERATOR] Name of line (e.g. Caluya Line or Bagong Bandila Subdivision)=
- Use abbreviations in the name tag and use the full operator's name in the operator tag.
Lutang Lines tracks:
railway=rail gauge=1435 voltage=25000 electrified=contact_line frequency=60 operator=Lutang Lines railway:traffic_mode=passenger
Bus stations should be named after the place they primarily serve. Prefixes are also added. Write them out in full, no abbreviations.
- Opposite, or Opp. for the other side of the road. The Lutang Mapping Authority has a bus station outside it; and across the road is a station named "Opposite Lutang Mapping Authority".
This website has information on the Singapore bus system; which is a major source of inspiration for the Bagong Bandila bus network.
Lutang has its fair share of provincial bus companies too, just like the Philippines. However, these companies very rarely run routes from Bagong Bandila to random places in the countryside, focusing more on supplementing the railway network.
|Lutang Bus||Bagong Bandila||Operated by the Lutang Department of Transportation|
|Little Bird Lines||Nationwide|
- Transport route relations should be formatted as: "LINE_NAME - START --> END".
- Route relations should be named as "<ref> <start> --> <end>".
- Adding "(<A>)" at the end where A is a province, city, or completely arbitrary division is OK if routes must be expressed by more than 1 relation due to node count or other considerations.
Network relations should not be used. Rather, simply use
network tags on routes & route masters.
- Lutang Expressways for the expressways which start with E
- Lutang Trunks for the trunks that start with N
- Literally "fast road", or "road that is fast". Coined by me because (1) Tagalog has no dedicated word for expressways, and (2) cars go fast on expressways.
- Literally "parking lot for trains"
