Unusual and not documented shop values in South Korea

I created listing of unusual and not documented shop values, maybe it will be useful for mappers: User:Mateusz Konieczny/unusual shop values/South Korea - OpenStreetMap Wiki

Note that “unusual and not documented” does not mean “wrong” - many should be simply documented.

Some may be fixable remotely:

  • clear typos (shop=suupermarket)
  • written in language other than English but with clear mapping to local language (for example shop selling meat in Polish is “mięsny”, so shop=mięsny is clearly shop=butcher)
  • too specialized tags (shop=coal is better tagged as shop=fuel fuel=coal, shop=office_furniture as shop=furniture furniture=office, shop=indian_spices as shop=spices cuisine=indian)
  • very clear duplicates (shop=hair_salon vs shop=hairdresser)
  • shop with website, maybe even linked in OSM object, that allows establishing proper value of shop tag - it is also worth adding website tag
  • in some cases something is clearly not a shop (shop=factory_producing_widgets is likely man_made=works)
  • needed and valid shop value that should be documented at OSM wiki

Some may require resurvey, if one is luckily in your area you can check it. Or you can create a note and wait for local mapper to resurvey it.
Contacting original mapper may make sense.

Remember, it is better to not edit than break data in case of tagflidling - create note if unclear or unsure.

Let me know if this list is useful but outdated (I will setup refreshing it in such case) or pointless/problematic (I can delete it if it is causing more problems than benefits).

Some improvements can be made to this list… Mayvbe mark cases with nearby notes opened already so these can be skipped for now? And mark cases where website link is available so these can be processed first?
Cases on "entries from list of suspicious ones: " list can get explanations why this values are treated as invalid. Maybe more.

(helping here is useful as it allows to reduce number of not needed and pointless top-level shop values, on 2023-08-14 we had 11 215 distinct shop values, vast majority bogus, broken or not needed. Reviewing such lists also allows us to spot missing shop values, problems with documentation and presets. Repeated appearance of shop value may indicate that wiki or presets should be improved. Maybe iD translation is bad or requires additional aliases for easier search? Maybe OSM wiki would benefit from translating it to local language or being more clear?)

(I can also generate such listing for other areas, let me know if someone is interested)


KOR: 정리해 주셔서 감사합니다. 제공해 주신 위키 내용 중 shop=discount가 붙은 가게 두 개 다이소는 한국의 할인 판매점 브랜드(위키데이터 링크)입니다. 해당 장소 두 곳을 위키 데이터를 사용하는 태그로 업그레이드하였습니다.

ENG: Thank you for your work. Among the wiki content you provided, the two stores tagged with shop=discount and named “다이소” are discount store brands in South Korea (Wikidata link). I have upgraded these two locations to use tag shop=variety_store, which is a reccomandation of ID Editor for “다이소”.

shop=kimchi로 태그되어 있는 18곳의 김치 가게들은 뭘로 태그해야 할까요?
OSM 위키의 shop 태그 설명을 봤을 때 가장 적합해 보이는 게 그나마 shop=greengrocershop=farm일 것 같은데 뭔가 김치가게와 딱 맞는 듯한 느낌은 아니네요. "반찬 가게"를 위한 태그가 있을지요?

Or shop=food, food=kimchi?
