I was editing the map at a local zoo and saw it was possible to tag an area as an Animal Enclosure, which I proceeded to do with several animal enclosures within the zoo. There appears to be no way to add a note for what species the enclosure obtains. Is there a way I’m not seeing, and if not, could it be added?
Hi, From looking at the advice here:- https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:attraction=animal I’d say name=??? or species=???
Yes, I see now how you can tag it to Wikidata. Is there any way to list multiple species for a single enclosure?
I’d recommend the semicolon separator. Using species for horses and donkeys I’d tag
species = Equus ferus; Equus africanus species:en = Horse; Donkey
Let’s hope order is preserved by the data consumers
You could add the animals as points inside the enclosure. This way you lose some information but it is better to maintain if there are multiple animals, sharing one enclosure.
Not exactly, domesticated horse is a subspecies Equus ferus caballus. This is reflected in horse - Wikidata — Then
taxon:*= is needed to match
Tagging of animals across features is very chaotic. Reminds me of how
wood=palm is deprecated by reason of
wood=, causing the appropriation of
animal=is feature not attribute, caused by
animal_keeping=causing the yet another unfortunate
Oh why is this thread revived… Btw, problem with this is
attraction=animal commonly means a single enclosure. Adding multiple creates an impression of multiple enclosures, when the animals are to be seen in a mix.
It’s an unfortunate consequence similar to
attraction=water_slide being used directly for the slide itself, necessitating splitting for
layer= in a departure from the usual meaning of
attraction as an integral feature; instead of the format of
=roller_coaster for the entire area,
roller_coaster=track for individual sections.
I thought about an area as enclosure, including multiple points with
