Status: In use

Usage

For describing the predominant usage of land along a road or other way. This could be used for rendering if landuse=* area information is not available, or for routing. For example a road marked abutters=residential is likely to be slower than one through open country.

This tag is useful when:

  • You are just passing through an area;
  • You are not familiar with an area; and/or
  • You do not have Aerial imagery for the area you're editing.

If you are very familiar with an area or can definitely recognise landuse from the aerial imagery, the landuse=* tag can give better rendering results. Even in these circumstances, abutters can be marked in order to provide an exception to the general rule: for example, retail areas consisting of flats-above with retail fronting along a street in the middle of a predominantly residential area. It is also useful to specify abutters on highway=unclassified in urban contexts, to help distinguish them from rural contexts.

Current preset values in Potlatch are:

  • commercial - offices and small businesses
  • industrial - includes light industry
  • mixed
  • residential
  • retail - shops
