This probably isn't too far off from many of the larger man_made=pier structures in resort towns, although it lacks the water underneath most of the time. Would man_made=bridge be appropriate for the surrounding area?
I think this is becomming fairly common in some flood prone areas, so dedicated tagging seems like a good idea, both for the usually dry situation, and for buildings that sit over water but don't even have vestigial mooring areas. The wiki lists building=stilt_house, but this seems overly specific. Whether a building is tagged as being on stilts should be independent of building use IMO. Regardless in this case min_level=1 seems about right to me to denote the absence of a ground floor. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:man_made%3Dpier https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:building%3Dstilt_house -Alan On Wed, 25 Nov 2020 at 06:34, Mateusz Konieczny via Tagging < firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > add location=overhead on buildings and other objects? > https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:location > > https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:building:min_level > > https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:building:levels#Buildings_with_parts_that_don.27t_start_at_ground_level > (not sure can it be applied if entire building starts above ground level) > > Certainly add also description=* tag with info what is happening here, > maybe with link to this mailing list thread. > > > Nov 25, 2020, 01:00 by graemefi...@gmail.com: > > How do you tag an area, in this case an entire housing estate!, that is > raised up above ground level? > > > https://www.google.com.au/maps/@-28.065772,153.3799853,3a,15y,117.51h,89.21t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sN_TJvFHJyLff1E4GmiCSjQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en > (with the usual not mapping from Google ...) > > Just draw the outline of the area & tag it as level=1? > > The main entry is via a bridge: > https://www.google.com.au/maps/@-28.0673717,153.3800556,3a,23.4y,28.84h,87.1t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sBF_8z5ekricuuEFZnUJioQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en > , > which is ok, but should all the internal roads also be marked as bridges? > > Thanks > > Graeme > > > _______________________________________________ > Tagging mailing list > Tagging@openstreetmap.org > https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/tagging >
