Is there a conceivable scenario where a data consumer or renderer

When I go walking in the mountains, I like do follow tracks that are 
close to ponds (in this case, small (~10m) body of water where animals 
can go to drink) and I can find many of them in a few kilometres. Lakes 
are very different from that :-)

Hi,

I don't agree with the deprecation of water=pond. I find it perfect for 
small body of water like the ones you can see here for cows watering:

So it might be artificial, like a landuse=reservoir or 
water=reservoir, but smallish. Or it might be natural like a 
water=lake, but smallish. However, nothing on the water=lake page 
defines a lower limit for the size of a lake.


This is a shame, because all the other values of water=* are clearly 
defined as only natural, or only artificial, and waterway=* features 
are also clearly divided. Furthermore, the original lags 
landuse=reservoir and landuse=basin were also clearly artificial, 
while lakes were natural.


But the biggest problem is that there is no way to define a lower size 
for a lake or reservoir, or an upper size for a pond. And the size of 
the area is easier available from the geometry of the feature, so it 
doesn't need to be mentioned in the tag.


I think the best option is to deprecate water=pond and suggest using 
water=lake for natural lakes, even small ones, and use water=reservoir 
or water=basin (or landuse=reservoir or =basin if you prefer) for the 
artificial ones.

the wiki (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dparking)

(e.g., disabled). Read talk

If one has all the available information, I think that the tag

When I had to map parking spaces specifically designed for disabled 
people (i.e. only disabled people can park there), I've used 
disabled=designated, because it defines (or that is my interpretation) 
an access condition and it applies it to disabled people.


While parking_space=disabled seems to be more generic.

But if the default use of parking_space=disables means exactly that only 
disabled people can park there, I'm ok to use it (and change my edits), 
but in this case an explicit description in this sense is required in

I see your point and agree it would be preferable to develop a more

If we chose charge:water 
=free 
we 
would need to differentiate when the water is free to anyone (yes in 
OSM speak) or just paying customers (customers in OSM speak).


We could use :
charge:water 
=/fee>

access = 
container = 

In the above, European Water Project would only include cafés, bars, 
etc. with
charge:water 
=free 


access = yes
container = bring_own


If you use the tag /access/ alone, it could refer to the "main" feature 
(the bar or restaurant...).


And water is probably too general... I try suggesting to use 
/tap_water/, that should clearly state that is not bottle water :-)


So it could be:

 * tap_water=yes/no/customers
 * tap_water:free=yes/no/customers
 * tap_water:container=*

This way it seems to me you should be able to cover all the 
possibilities clearly.

2020-01-17 Thread Alessandro Sarretta

Hi Lionel,

On 17/01/20 10:52, Lionel Giard wrote:

Alesandro,

The thing is that disabled=designated is an access (so regulated by 
law), and would depend because each country's law vary (not every 
country enforce restriction for disabled parking or other type of 
vehicle...). Thus, it may be wrong to tag an access when it doesn't exist.


If the parking_space with specific symbology is regulated by law and 
only accessible by disabled persons (like in Italy), I think the tag 
disabled=designated express exactly that, and should be used.


If a parking space is not limited to disabled persons, what is the 
purpose to add a capacity:disabled=1? Maybe I'm missing your point... 
Could you please share and example where a parking space should have a 
capacity:disabled=1 but is not access-regulated?


Ale

While a tag that's only an attribute describing what type of parking 
exist, is unambiguous. It may be parking_space=* or access:*=* , both 
are "good" for that as they are unambiguous in their meaning. The only 
advantage of the second is that it is already used for amenity=parking 
and seems coherent to use for the parking_space in my opinion (even if 
it is only 1 place). The wiki page already mention all the different 
type because there are many other than disabled (like parent, women, 
electric charging,...) : https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:capacity


marc,

The capacity:*=* tag should not be used alone (as described for any 
parking), it is an addition to the capacity=* tag. For example, a 
place marked as "capacity=1" and "capacity:disabled=1" means that the 
1 capacity is disabled. A better example is for an amenity=parking, 
you have a parking with "capacity=12" and "capacity:disabled=3" it 
means 3 of the 12 parking space are disabled.
Theoretically, all parking_space should be capacity=1 (and if 
necessary capacity:*=*) but the advantage (as mentioned above) is that 
it would use the same tagging than for amenity=parking. Thus we 
wouldn't use two different scheme for the same thing.

from what I've understood, the parking_space tag is meant to identify

In the specific case of parking spaces for disables persons, 
unfortunately there are many way of tagging it... In this issue related 
to the visibility in the OSMand app there are probably almost all of 
them. https://github.com/osmandapp/Osmand/issues/6805

Re: [Tagging] Correct use of height with kerb

2020-01-11 Thread Alessandro Sarretta

Hi Volker,

the values raised and lowered for a kerb (node) are related to the 
vertical gap between sidewalk/crossing and not really to the direction. 
Raised means that there is a (more or less) big transition (in the kerb 
page [1] it says >3 cm), while lowered means a smaller transition, and 
flush no gap at all. All of this regardless of the direction (up or down).

I do have a related question, regarding the kerb values lowered|raised

Assume you find yourself on a pedestrian crossing across a road that 
has an adjacent sidewalk and cycleway on the same side.
The main carriageway is separated from the (foot-only) sidewalk by a 
kerb and that is separated from the cycleway by another kerb. The 
first kerb is typically raised (as the tag refers to a kerb between 
the road and the sideway, and the latter is always higher than the 
road), but the second kerb (let's assume that the cycle path is 
physically higher than the footway) is it kerb=raised (a step upward 
from the footwalk to the cycleway) or is it kerb=lowered (a step down 
from the cycleway to the sidewalk)? I have come across a number of 
these in the same context that Ale mentioned. I fear my conclusion is 
that  the values "lowered" and "raised" on a node "kerb" need to be 
accompanied by direction=forward|backward (like stop and give-way, for 
example) with respect to the "crossing" way. I don't like my 
conclusion, but it seems inevitable.

Re: [Tagging] Feature Proposal - Voting result - Pedestrian lane

2019-12-03 Thread Alessandro Sarretta

Thank you Markus for this summary.

I think that the issue of having a good way to describe marked lanes on 
the road dedicated for people to walk is still there. In my opinion it 
needs a more extensive discussion and some tagging and graphic examples 
to show simple and complex application.


As an example, I'm thinking about detailed mapping for pedestrian (or 
even people with disabilities) that might need additional information. 
Information on width could help to understand if that footway is safe 
for wheelchair, or colour could help visually impaired people (or even 
smoothness values that can differ from the main road).


In an example with pedestrian lanes (or let's call them footway lanes, 
or even sidewalk lanes, ...) on both sides of a two-ways road we could 
have on the left side a 1m-wide lane, on the right side a red lane.


How should we map them?

pedestrian_lane=both
pedestrian_lane:left:width=1 m
pedestrian_lane:right:colour=red

or something like

footway=lane
footway:left:width=1 m
footway:right:colour=red

And in case on the left we have a shared cycle/foot lane?

cycleway:left=lane
pedestrian_lane=left
segregated=no

or

cycleway:left=lane
footway:left=lane
segregated=no

I think discussing of specific examples could help us clarifying which 
solution is better (or more usable).

   - Disagreement with the definition of sidewalk=* being a raised or

In my opinion, footway[:left/right]=lane isn't a good idea for the

sidewalk=left/right/both and footway[:left/right]=lane would have two

[Tagging] Use of a site relation for grouping parking spaces

2019-12-03 Thread Alessandro Sarretta

Dear tagging list,

looking on how to use the tag amenity=parking_space 
(https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dparking_space) I've 
always found the requirement that "parking spaces always have to be 
grouped together in a site relation tagged with type=site + 
site=parking" too complex and not really required by a general use case.


I can think about areas with maybe 10 amenity=parking_spaces and a 
surrounding amenity=parking, where I don't see any strong need to 
specify a relation to group the parking spaces together. Here an

Searching for a reason for this requirement, I haven't found here 
(https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?oldid=629318) a specific one.


Looking here 
(https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relations/Proposed/Site), the 
reason to use the relation seems to be quite lighter: "Parking sites - 
useful for cases where parking entrances are mapped but parking area is 
not yet mapped. Once parking is mapped as an area with service roads 
marked site relation is no longer useful and may be safely deleted."


Should we maybe rephrase the sentence "Parking spaces *always have to* 
be grouped together in a site relation tagged with type=site + 
site=parking." in something like "Parking spaces *can* be grouped 
together in a site relation tagged with type=site + site=parking."?

Thanks Clifford,

I've tried to use your tagging system in an area close where I live. You 
can find here the way (https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/746061718) and 
here a picture from Google Streetview 
(https://www.google.it/maps/@45.428055,11.791072,3a,25.2y,347.58h,76.17t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sc04-aTnZlGZiu4i3Pm0Czw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656). 
Is this what you're proposing?


I think a few mapping examples could help in better understanding the 
proposal.

No Clifford, I'm wondering if the area of the access_aisle could be 
mapped as an independent area (polygon instead of line), aside of the 
parking_space area.



  * I am a bit confused by /accessible_van/. Does it refer to vans

for disabled persons, shouldn't it be access_aisle=disabled
anyway?

Vans can be equipped with either ramps or lifts to load and unload 
wheelchairs.  The ramps and lifts require an extra wide space, in the 
US, it's 8 feet, about 2.4 meters. These vans are quite common in the 
US. I haven't seen any cars similarly equipped.


If the aisle is for disabled people, I'd use access_aisle=disabled. 
Maybe we can add some quantitative details as width=* to describe the 
extra space.

AFAIK shoulders are, in general, thought for vehicles in case of an

[Tagging] Using Corine Land Cover definitions for land cover in OSM?

2019-10-20 Thread Alessandro Sarretta
I'm not against natural=badlands for areas that are covered by a non 
vegetated surface in an erosive context with steep slopes (as per 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Badlands). Anyway they seem to be a more 
specific case than a "simple" bare soil.


I think that, in general, when dealing with land cover things in 
OpenStreetMap, we should really try and use some knowledge from standard 
definitions, e.g. Corine Land Cover CLC). I see that there is already a 
page defining connections between OSM elements and CLC classes [1]


In the case of /badlands/, they are mentioned as one of the examples in 
/3.3.3. Sparsely vegetated areas/ [2].


I'm quite new in discussions about land cover in OSM, but wouldn't it be 
useful to add, in addition to OSM-specific tags like natural=bare_rock, 
natural=shingle,  natural=scree, ... a tag to reference standard land 
cover classification?


I see that a tag /CLC:code /[3] already exists and used more than 30 
times, but it seems to be used only in case of imports and it is 
suggested (with a very weak motivation, IMHO) to be deleted after 
editing those areas after import.


In the example of badlands, would it be useful to have both 
/natural=badlands /(or any other agreed OSM-spefici tag) + /CLC:code=333 
and//or /land_cover=sparsely_vegetated_areas /?


I see many useful uses coming from this.. but I could be wrong...

Any ideas?

How should areas of bare soil, such as badlands, be tagged?

Currently there are documented tags for dry areas of bedrock, stones and sand:

natural=bare_rock, natural=shingle,  natural=scree, and natural=sand

For tidal areas, beaches and wetlands there's also natural=beach,
natural=shoal and wetland=mud

However, there's no documented, common tag for dry areas of exposed
clay, silt or mixed soil.

natural=badlands has been used 5 times, but this is rather specific
and may not be well-known outside of North America:
https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/natural=badlands

natural=desert is common, but includes all kinds of vegetated and
unvegetated arid areas; many of these can be tagged with natural=
grassland, heath, scrub, sand, scree etc.

Desert is a climate, not a land cover nor a land form. Some deserts include 
'lakes'.

The key natural has climate, land form and land cover all in the one tagging 
scheme, I don't think is is a good scheme and would be better separated into 
the individual things it is trying to tag.


natural=clay has been used twice:
https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/natural=clay

natural=earth has been used 20 times:
https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/natural=earth

natural=bare_earth has 23 uses:
https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/natural=bare_earth

There's also natural=pebbles with 67 uses
(https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/natural=pebbles)
and natural=gravel 90 times -
https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/natural=gravel

But most of those could be scree or shingle, which would be more specific.

Would it be best to describe the type of soil, like natural=clay,
=silt, =earth, =pebbles, =gravel?

Better to tag specific things rather than a group.


Should mappers use surface=* without another top-level tag?

No.


Should natural=bare_earth be used in general for clay and other bare soils?

Or is natural=badlands best to describe the specific feature of an
arid area where the bare soil is exposed due to erosion?

I have no idea of what 'badlands' are .. from your information it is not single 
land cover nor a land form.
So it is a climate? A climate that causes erosion to a bare surface? No 
vegetation?

Re: [Tagging] How to tag flood prone points and areas?

2019-08-31 Thread Alessandro Sarretta

Dear Immaculata,

if you want to describe "things" that are prone to floods, it seems to 
me that the tag /flood_prone=yes/ can be the right one.


I have a few doubts on how this information has been collected: are 
there official maps with areas prone to flood and you have selected 
assets in that area or you interviewed people who told you that some 
specific assets were impacted by floods in the past?


If the second is true, verifiability and return times are important 
issues that have to be tackled and somehow mapped.

on the assets/amenities in the city that are important to the 
community and are at risk of flooding or not.


After collecting all the information, we decided we should upload them 
in OSM to be shared with the world since it was a successful project 
to some extent. The challenge came when we could not upload these data 
since there is no specific tag to use for amenities or AoIs affected 
by floods, the only tag that we could find is flood_prone=yes 
but this is 
mostly applicable to “roads/ways" that go underwater after heavy rains.


 1. Is there any other tag that can be used for points under flooding
threat or can we use another tag?
 2. Our initial thought was to create a new tag i.e. asset:risk=yes
and asset:risk=noor we could overcome this challenge by having one
tag that is used by the entire OSM community to identify ways,
areas, or pointsthat are prone to floods

sidewalk=slide might be related to a tag I've wanted for a while. I 
think I would personally call that a ramp, so maybe a use of a tag 
like ramp=yes would be worth discussing.


There's two big benefits I can name right away:

- It becomes easier to incrementally map l to armchair map these 
features. User A tags ramp=yes on a footways (armchair mappable), User 
B can then use a QA tool and add incline=up/down (armchair mappable), 
user C can add incline=a number (must map on-site).


- It becomes possible to distinguish infrastructure built as a ramp 
(like this slide or a wheelchair ramp) from any other segment of 
footway that just happens to be steep.


Does ramp=yes seem like an appropriate (hypothetical) tag for this 
situation?


I've assumed that ramp should be used only with some steps, but actually 
the definition in the wiki 
(https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:ramp) it's wider: " It's 
*usually* used on staircases".


To me it seems quite a useful option.

But would it be ok to use it on a node instead of a way segment?

from what I've understood form the wiki, /kerb/ is more related to the

it can have a null (flush), minor (lowered) or high (raised) step. If we

From the image I couldn't tell what the inclined leads to. Is it just 
a wide shoulder or to another sidewalk? That may make a difference in

When the incliined segment leads to a crossing I'm ok with using

Re: [Tagging] Handicap Parking Access Aisles

2019-05-02 Thread Alessandro Sarretta

Hi,

from what I understood, "access aisle" is an official term only in the 
US, as described in the ADA standards 
(https://www.access-board.gov/guidelines-and-standards/buildings-and-sites/about-the-ada-standards/guide-to-the-ada-standards/chapter-5-parking), 
but it describes clearly (as least for a non native English speaker like 
me) what is it.


For mapping accessibility paths for disabled persons, I think it is 
quite important to have this information, so that its presence and 
accessibility from e.g. the sidewalk, is well represented (with e.g. 
tags describing kerbs). This picture [0] to me describes well the reason 
this can be really useful.


To only have amenity=parking_space mapped wouldn't help in describing 
and understanding the accessibility of the parking place from the 
footpaths/sidewalks.


I'm not sure about the use of the egress areas, that seem to be less 
related to access paths for disabled persons, and more related to areas 
not usable by other cars...

that 'access' is misinterpreted to refer only to disabled users

interpretation of access being for anybody. I think it is
something to be very careful about.
Usage in the UK supports my interpretation - I know of many car

Předmět: [Tagging] leisure=common replacement for public areas with 
some trees



What about e.g.: landuse=public_green? It could be also extended
by tags like trees=yes, scrub=yes or public_green=grass /
public_green=flowers.


One more thing: Should we use landuse there? As these areas are 
usually inside of landuse=residental? Maybe use leisure=public_green 
instead?


I would suggest to use landcover=grass 
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:landcover%3Dgrass> and maybe 
access=yes
