Jag vill tagga om ett par hus som i dagsläget är markerade som lägenheter (building=apartments). De håller egentligen en blandning av sopsortering, förråd, föreningslokaler och liknande utrymmen som hör till närliggande hyreslägenheter. Någon som har förslag på hur dessa hus bör taggas?
Marc_marc på OFTC#osm föreslår “building=house building:use=storage”.
building:use seems reasonable to me. Use
building:use=* if the building looks more like apartments than a house.
Nice. There usually are some mechanical grinders in these buildings for coarsly grinding garbage! And there usually is som machinery for getting out the smell.
A building that houses large machinery is usually a
In any case, survey is the best in these cases.
Those small buildings for - temporarilly - storering garbage are rather alike in residential areas.
Then, there are other types of small buildings mentioned in the original question; eg for meatings etc. Often these buildings are for several different uses. Your answer sugests that building=service can’t be used in these cases. Someone sugested building:use=. What about building:use=multi (as in sporting facilities)?
building:use=* key is specially handy when the form or original purpose of a building differs from its present use. A service building can be used for multiple purposes by definition. I don’t think additional tagging is necessary in that case.
multi in sporting facilites is used with the
sport key and means multi-sports. It is used when the facility is not specific for one sport, but can be used for several not specified sports. (i.e.
Well, this is all very well known, in short a matter of notoriety. My suggestion was to use building:use=multi in analogy to the sporting tag.
Nevertheless there dosn’t seem to be a resonable way to tag small buildings inside (often) of residential areas which are used for either meetings, storage, garbage-collecting or other services to the residents and which in them self are not for living in.
One can however find some - admittingly a small number of - building:use=multipupose, building:use=service or building:use=storage in the osm-database!
You can find any tags you like in the OSM database.
building=yes when I can’t find anything better.
We all do!
What I meant is that I usually use a generic value better than innovating or using a undocumented value.
I do not censure anyone who uses an invented value. You can use any tag you like. In case of doubt, I find a
building=yes better because it is recognized as a valid but improvable value, while indicating a specific innovative value and not well documented can be misleading or confusing to other mappers.
