The settings for Vespucci are split over two screens: standard and advanced preferences. The more commonly used settings should in general be in the first screen.

Validator settings

Validator settings

Configure the standard validator.

There are currently two configurable checks: a check for missing keys and an age based one for re-surveying.

Re-survey check

For objects with the configured tags the validator will check if they have been modified in the number of days set in the rule and if they have not, highlight the objects. check_date and check_date:... keys with last modified dates are taken in to consideration if they are older than the modification date of the object.

Missing tags check

The missing tag check works on the combination of the keys that should be checked and the preset for element.

Example: the default configuration checks that a name tag is present on a object if the matching preset contains a name field in the non-optional tags (the check rules can be configured to require "optional" tags).

Alternative tags can be indicated by separating them with a vertical bar "|".

Example: "name|ref" will fail only if neither a name or a ref tag is present. Note that is a tag is present that leads to the absence of a tag being ignored (currently supported: noname=yes, validate:no_name=yes, noref=yes for name and ref tags), the check will terminate with the corresponding missing tag.

Connected node tolerance

Configure how far away from a highway a highway end node must be to not be highlighted as an error.

Opening hours templates

The dialog displayed allows to edit the meta-data for individual templates or delete them, save the current templates and load templates from files.
