Definition: An area of land that is used to keep animals
Drafted on: 2012-10-17

The tag landuse=animal_keeping can be used to map an area that is used to keep animals.

Tagging

Draw the area where the animals are kept and apply the tag landuse=animal_keeping to it. Besides the main tag landuse=animal_keeping the following sub-tags can be used for further refinement:

  • animal_keeping=<animal>, where <animal> means the name of the animal (english singular form). If more than one species is kept, provide a semi-colon-separated list, e.g. animal_keeping=sheep;cow .
  • animal_keeping:type==paddock/field_shelter/open_stable.../...

Examples

Tags Description Photo
Area
landuse=animal_keeping
animal_keeping=horse
animal_keeping:type=open_stable
An open stable for horses.
Note for native speakers: In the UK the term open stable is rather unknown, because for some legal reasons those are non-existing there. Somehow similar is a field shelter - also sometimes called free barn. Contrary to an open stable the facilities within the area (like e.g. feeding stations, watering places, ...) have to be moveable.
