Just to clarify: In Germany you have either zebra markings or traffic 
lights, NEVER both. Zebra marking means that road traffic has to stop 
for pedestrians at any time.
I've seen in Spain that zebra markings were removed for crossings with 
traffic lights, so maybe this is becoming more of a standard in other 
places too.

Re: [Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - Sauna

2018-06-11 Thread Max
Great idea to make the sauna key more useful. But it should be looked at 
in more detail and with less of a Finnish bias. :)


Some questions that the tag should address:

1. How to tag a place which has several individual saunas?
1b. What about other sauna related amenities like cold pools (how 
cold?), whirlpools, hot tubs (how hot?)... Ice buckets, etc.

2. What's the method of heating: Wood, electricity...
3. What's the designated temperature in that sauna?
4. Are occupants allowed to handle the löyly themselves or is only staff 
allowed to do that? At what times do they (often Saunas have löyly at 
the full hour/ half hour, etc)

5. how many people fit inside?
6. how to tag the opening hours if they are different for men/women/mixed?
7. is clothing allowed?
8. There ara also other types of saunas in the world that might have 
their particularities. 찜질방 in Korea come to my mind, where you can 
actually spend as much time as you want and even stay overnight. The 
very traditional types are basically a kiln and have a fire burning 
inside for a day and then the ashea are brushed out and the walls 
radiate the heat for another day.


Then there are countries where the word sauna is just a synonym for a 
place where people fuck, like it is in France. Might lead to odd 
situations if those are confused.


Some of these things on the list may indeed be concluded from the 
country specific customs, but a map and tagging scheme should at least 
consider them

The proposed values as of now are as follows:

– sauna=yes
   General purpose value
– sauna=hot
   A Finnish-style sauna with a temperature of over 60°C because of the
water thrown on the rocks of the stove. This kind of sauna is relatively
dry because of the high temperature.
– sauna=steam
   A Turkish-style steam sauna with a lower temperature and limited
visibility because of the steam generated.
– sauna=smoke
   A Finnish-style hot sauna in which the stove has no chimney but
instead the smoke fills the room when the sauna is prepared, and the
smoke is then ventilated out when the sauna is ready.
– sauna=dry
   A non-steam dry sauna in which water is not thrown on the stove.
– sauna=aroma
   A sauna that constantly has an aroma. A Finnish sauna with occasional
aroma liquid added to the water is tagged as sauna=hot.
– sauna=infrared
   A sauna-like construction that is used for infrared therapy.

With power comes responsibility.

In my view the responsibility to make a map/rendering that distinguishes
itself from all the commercial maps out there that only care about

But in UK English you can also call them Museum as well or would that
be wrong? Would it be wrong to call a house with exhibits of art
inside a Museum?

In case you haven't followed the discussion, because it starts going
in circles now: The issue with tourism=gallery is that at the moment
it puts institutional houses with art exhibitions in the same tag then
private showrooms of art for sale (trying to not use the words
"Museum" and "Gallery" because both seem to be ambivalent at this point)

I see two reasons why it would make sense:

1. the word gallery alone seems to cause so much confusion because of
its ambiguity.
2. if we depreciate tourism=gallery and introduce
amenity=contemporary_art_gallery it would make it clear which tag is
old and should be carefully reevaluated or is a new one following the
new scheme.

A gallery usually has contracts with an artist to allow going sales for
this artist through the gallery exclusively (sometimes with limitations
such as geographically). So a gallery has a list of artists which they
represent - it has nothing to do with what they currently have on display.

Except we need a new tag for what is a "contemporary art gallery" or
short: gallery. because the current shop=art is not a gallery.

in the definition of shop=art it clearly says "The shop primarily sells
art products." Contemporary Art Galleries make their money by selling
art, but the typical visitor is not buying anything. It has a function
of display to increase awareness and knowledge about the artist (to
increase her/his value).

The issue is that according to the wiki museums and contemporary art
galleries are the same thing, yet they are very different things (the
main thing is that the objects are for sale (but it doesn't make it a
shop either!!)

Just look at the picture examples, where the first two are museums, the
last one is a gallery. It's plain wrong to have those in the same
category. If we find this OK we can also tag it with something=art

I see it the opposite way. Many Art Museums call themselves Gallery. But

The Moma is a Museum.

By the current definition of the OSM wiki it should be tagged
tourism=gallery

Because this is confusing I support the move to remove tourism=gallery
entirely and make it museum.

For actual (contemporary) art galleries we should introduce
amenity=art_gallery or something similar.

So we are now at:
tourism=museum (nicer would be amenity, but for the sake of not changing
too much)
museum:topic= art / railway / history / war / mathematics / ...
art_form = painting / photography / sculpture / video / 
art_genre = still_life / landscape / portrait / religious /  (if
applicable, many collections will be more diverse, but some might be
specialized)
art_style = expressionism / futurism / impressionism / mannerism / ...


Additionally
amenity=contemporary_art_gallery

and
shop=art

That sounds good to me.
Maybe we should have a way to add the names of the artist this gallery
represents?

Are there any objections to this?

Hm. could probably be said about a stripclub too.
As an artist, I must say that when I go to a museum or gallery it is
mostly work.
For almost anyone I know it is too. I don't think many people of the
typical gallery visitors would agree with "tourism". Investment,
research, inspiration, socializing, networking, business, scouting would
all fit just as well - or better - as tourism does.

Right.

https://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/gallery
https://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/museum

Gallery: A room or building for the display or sale of works of art: an
art gallery the National Gallery

Museum: A building in which objects of historical, scientific, artistic,
or cultural interest are stored and exhibited: [as name]: the Museum of
Modern Art

Also the British English is contradicting the use in OSM and the
definition in the OSM wiki where museum is non-art only and Gallery is a
Museum for art. That seems completely made up. Thanks Matthijs for
bringing this conversation up. Now how do we fix it?

I can understand where the confusion is coming from, but it is actually
not really hard to distinguish.

The art gallery is an important part of the art business. There is the
gallerist whose job it is to find promising artists to invest in. The
gallerist works with the artist to promote the artist and is selling the
artworks of the artist. Usually the gallerist has a contract with the
artist that grants the gallerist the right to represent this artist for
a country or continent.

For the layman it might be confusing that there are museums which also
call some of their rooms a gallery, or even the whole museum is called
gallery. This however is just because in this context gallery is used as
a synonym for exhibition space. Here it is more the architectural sense
of the word gallery, just like it can be used for things that are
balcony like.

If an artist says something like: "Next month I'll show my work in a
gallery in Paris" you can safely assume that the art gallery of the
first kind is what is referred to.

Sure, in a seruous gallery you will not find pricetags on the works. If
you do see them, that's a sign it might be just what is described as
shop=art in the wiki. Why? because the gallery will either have a
separate sheet of paper with the prices and the list of works, or the
gallerist prefers to negociate individually with the clients.

So your examples are not confusing at all. That there is no price tag,
is no indicator that it is a museum.
The second example is clearly using the word gallery in the
architectural or exhibition space sense, but that doesn't make it an art
gallery. It's a museum (which has some thematic rooms/exhibition spaces
a.k.a. "galleries").

Does it make sense?

I know a few examples, but I don't think it's as common as art shops
disguising themselves as gallery (see the picture in the wiki for
shop=art, is is calling itself gallery but it clearly isn't)

An example for a gallery with the workd museum in it would be the DAM
Digital Art Museum in Berlin
http://dam.org/home

Feel free to use my definition in the wiki. Off course it is a whee
polemic and simplyfing, but as a guideline it does it's job i guess.

Browsing in the wiki I can see where all the confusion comes from.
Basically the wiki is saying that anything showing art is a gallery,
while the word museum is reserved for science and history.

Obviously that's not the case and should be fixed.

No, that's not the difference.

A museum is an institution which shows art works so that the public can
see them. The art works are usually by established artists. Shows are
curated thematically by curators.

A gallery is showing art to the public. There is the possibility of
purchase, but it is only a tiny fraction of the audience which actually
is buying. The works are by artists the gallery represents. Shows are
designed by the artist (with help or in collaboration with the gallerist).

An art shop is selling art(sy things). Visiting without buying is
possible, just as you may walk through a supermarket without buying
anything. The artworks are for sale are usually more on the craft side
of the arts. They are of decorative nature and not of considerable worth
on the art market. Art works may end there as second hand goods. The
producers of these art works may not even know their work is in the
shop. There is no special exhibition, concept or theme other than the
intent of selling the goods.

That's clearly a museum. On the page you see that the Museum has a
collection. The museum aquires works from artists for their collection.
Galleries don't do that. If museums do sell from their collection (this
happens one in a while) it is a major scandal.
You can also define it by their business model. They ask for donations.
Another indicator that it's a museum, galleries would not do this
either, because they live off the (usually 50%) fee of their sales.

> * http://www.whitewallgalleries.com/
That is a gallery. At least that's their self understanding. It is
selling crap IMHO, but let's not get into that. It seems quite
commercial, shop=art seems fair for this one as well.

> * 
> https://www.bcee.lu/en/Discover-BCEE/Discover-BCEE/The-'Am-Tunnel'-art-gallery
I would tag this as museum, not gallery. The word gallery is sometimes
used in a museum as a synonym for exhibition hall. In this case it is a
showroom for the aquisitions of a bank. It is not the intent of the
exhibition to resell these works. That said, showing the work usually
makes the work more valuable, so it is in the interest of the owner to
display the works (or lend them, sometimes permanently, to a museum).

the picture in the wiki for shop=art is a good example.

I second this. Gallery, Museum and a shop that sells art are completely
different things.

"I had a look at some famous galleries: the MoMA in New York, the Uffizi
in Florence, the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, the Van Gogh
Museum in Amsterdam, the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, and the Guggenheim
Museum in Bilbao."

Those are clearly museums, not galleries and they are correctly tagged
as museums. Sorry to say this, but that sentence clearly shows OP has
not understand what a gellery is. The wiki pages for tourism=gallery,
and shop=art do explain nicely what the difference is between those.

Ironically the image in the wiki for tourism=museum shows the national
GALLERY. (which should be tagged museum, but the national gallery is
showing art which the wiki is not mentioning, only "exhibitions on
scientific, historical, cultural topics")
It's a mess.

I think there is a need for sub tags in tourism=museum so that we can
distinguish between a science, history, tech, or art museum.

I've edited it a bit:

An art museum is an institution which shows artworks so that the public
can see them. The artworks are usually by established artists. Shows are
developed with a concept by curators. Artworks are from the museums
collection or on loan from other museums, galleries or private
collectors. The business model of an museum is based on public funding,
donations and ticket sales. Exhibitions are permanent collections and
temporary special exhibitions which run for a couple of months.
Depending on the available space, permanent and temporary exhibitions
are often simultaneously on display (in different rooms or levels).

A gallery is showing art to the public. There is the possibility of
purchase, but it is only a tiny fraction of the audience which actually
is buying. The works are by artists the gallery represents. Shows are
designed by the artist (with help or in collaboration with the
gallerist). Am exhibition consists typically of new work by the artist
is usually on display for a couple of weeks only. The business model of
an art gallery is based on the sales from the art. A gallery usually
gets a cut of up to 50% of the price of the artwork and is doing the
dealings with the art collector.

An art shop is selling art(sy things). Visiting without buying is
possible, just as you may walk through a supermarket without buying
anything. The artworks are for sale may be more on the craft side
of the arts. They usually are of decorative nature and not of
considerable worth on the art market.
Artworks may end there as second hand goods. The
producers of these artworks may not even know their work is in the
shop. There is no special exhibition, concept or theme other than the
intent of selling the goods.

I believe the German word "Galerie" is a short form for Gemäldegalerie
which is a place where paintings are on display.

However, the English word "Gallery" doesn't seem to have this specific
meaning. Mirriam-Webster includes "sculptures, etc"
