        • still in a brainstorming stage****

For avoidance of doubt, the tags will only be added to existing amenities and can not be used on a stand alone basis



outdoor_area=yes/no

For an amenity that has an outdoor area like a terrace, chairs on the sidewalk, etc

self_service=only/yes/no/outdoor/indoor

Is there any kind of self service in the amenity

takeaway=yes/no/seasonal/only

Does the amenity offer anything to take away. Seasonal can mean ice cream in the summer season or hot drinks in winter season

If it can be specified with more details or if it varies from product type to product type like a Cafe that offers coffee to go the full year and ice cream during the summer season (takeaway:coffee=yes; takeaway:ice_cream=seasonal)

takeaway:ice_cream=yes/no/seasonal

takeaway:coffee=yes/no/seasonal

takeaway:food=yes/no/seasonal

takeaway:beverages=yes/no/seasonal

  • Note - takeaway=* is already being added by Mapzen's POI Collector. As of August 11th (year?), there are 247 takeaway=yes in the planet.osm, about 7500 in Dec 2014

garden=yes/no/roofed/partial_roofed

In case there is a garden that belongs to the amenity or can be used by guests of the amenity. It may be worth to indicate if it is (partial) roofed so you know if it's worth to visit in case of bad weather

terrace=yes/no/roofed/partial_roofed

In case there is a terrace that belongs to the amenity or can be used by guests of the amenity. It may be worth to indicate if it is (partial) roofed so you know if it's worth to visit in case of bad weather

winter_garden=yes/no

In case there is a winter garden that belongs to the amenity or can be used by guests of the amenity.

biergarten=yes/no/roofed/partial_roofed

In case there is a biergarten that is operated by the amenity. Many biergarten in Germany are operated by an inhouse restaurant. It may be worth to indicate if it is (partial) roofed so you know if it's worth to visit in case of bad weather

  • Note: there are 3520 amenity=biergarten tags in the wild.
  • There are also beer_garden=yes tags for Restaurants.

sidewalk=yes/no/roofed/partial_roofed

Incase the sidewalk can be used by guests of the amenity. Well known examples are cafes in Paris' streets. It may be worth to indicate if it is (partial) roofed so you know if it's worth to visit in case of bad weather

kids_area=no/indoor/outdoor/both

In case the amenity has an area where kids can play. Well known examples are McD or Burger King with kids areas indoor and outdoor.

  • Note: "both" is a poor value since it is not self-explanatory, refers back to "indoor" and "outdoor" and thus restrains other possible values

changing_table=yes/no

In case the amenity offers a place where parents can do one of the most beloved things with their child

See also diaper=*

highchair=yes/no

In case the amenity offers a children's highchair for smaller children
