I would like to start a discussion about the values of
residential=*. I started to document some of the most used but I noticed that most values are not used correctly, mainly due to the fact that the list of values is never officially documented (I also posted this on the wiki talk page where it was last discussed in 2011).
Some things I noticed:
- Most misused seems to be
residential=urban. The wiki defines this as highrise but you can see this tag being used for urban in general, including areas of small apartments and single family housing.
residential=terracealso seems to be used for rows of single family houses and small apartments.
residential=*is used as subkey for
building=*while there is
Would it be an idea to have the following main values?
apartments: For apartment buildings (low and highrise) and deprecated
urbantag is to general and overlaps a lot with
single_family: for detached, single family houses (deprecate
terraced/terrace: terrace was the most used so I used and documented that but maybe
duplex: for 2 attached houses.
- lots of smaller one but the above seem to be the most common to me.
