    Hi, first of all, thanks a lot for sharing this. I have two questions:

    What did you use for the elements other then the roads (natural areas, railways, water)? They are not included in the layer imported using osm2po (data from Cloudmade).

    How do you define the road labeling (at what scale, the size, etc)?

      The other map elements are done using Shapefile exports of OSM data from Cloudmade. For labels, I use 8pt Arial with a 0.5mm buffer. Label placement is “curved” and “on line”. No scale limits are set in label settings.

        Ah, thanks. I am probably overlooking something obvious, but even without having labels defined, the layer does show road names for the primary roads (and perhaps highways, the area, Kenya, I am working with has not highways). Where is that defined?

    Ah, I did indeed overlook something. If you define labels in this new expression label plugin, these labels get included in the style when you save the style.

    Thanks for the explanation
