How to tag a farmer market

Farmer market is a place farmers sell their own products. Some are intermittent and some are permanent. For this, 2 propositions were made :

  • amenity=marketplace
  • shop=farm ( a recent compromise on that appears in Germany )

Proposition of new tagging for power generator

Some people find that the actual tagging scheme for power is not powerful enough. It can't, for example, handle well co/tri-generation centres.

So they proposed a set of tag changes in : Proposed_features/generator_rationalisation that would add several tags and deprecate power_source=* and power_rating=*.

Tagging a Dance school

The question went out and an bunch of different options where proposed.

First, the amenity=school with school=dance ...
or amenity=training with training=dance
or the previously Proposed : Proposed_features/Dancing_school


Trace visualisations

Cory Lueninghoener presented his tool to make visualisation of gpx traces like these: http://www.wirelesscouch.net/gpsmaps/

The tool is available here : http://www.wirelesscouch.net/labs/gpxmap/

How to add a Marker on the map

The question was asked how to add a marker somewhere on the map.

A part of the response can be found on Browsing#Adding a Marker or this question.

You can also use the static project to generate an image of the map (with or without a marker) on http://pafciu17.dev.openstreetmap.org/

Rental proposition

A need for a new rental scheme is coming. After the proposing of a new tag Proposed features/rental, some propose other alternatives like shop=rental in addition to rental=* or shop=bicycle with rental:bicycle=true
