NO Retail Chains

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

In the interests of enhancing tagging consistency, and perhaps to encourage mapping of missing shops, this page describes major chains (multiples) of banks and related financial companies, restaurants, cafes and shops. It also includes some buying groups which use a shared brand on outlets which belong to the group.

This page is a copy and a Norwegian version of the UK Retail Chains page

All shops/amenities should be tagged like this with an operator: "shop=convenience, name=Joker Kaien Brattholmen, operator = Joker ..."


The numbers in parenthesis after the name of the chain is the total number of stores, sometimes approximated. When correlating with OSM, by using Overpass Turbo etc, the number could be changed to represent number of stores in OSM compared to reality (35/556) where the numbers represent (OSM/Reality)

Food Shops

Supermarkets

A supermarket is a large store for groceries and other goods. It's a full service grocery store that often sells a variety of non-food products as well

shop=supermarket:

Coop Obs Hypermarked (ca 31) - https://coop.no/obs-hypermarked/ - https://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coop_Obs!


Convenience Stores

Typically much smaller than a supermarket, and typically carries a more limited selection of food items

shop=convenience  
https://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kategori:Dagligvarekjeder

Total:3214

As of August 2016: : shop=convenience = 944 shop=supermarket = 2304

Other food & drink stores

Bakery

shop=bakery. Often cross-over between cake/pastry/confectionery, fast_food and cafe. https://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kategori:Norske_bakerier

Alcohol

Base tag {shop=alcohol.

As of August 2016: shop=alcohol in Norway = 117


Clothing (& associated products)

Clothes

shop=clothes. gender=* can be used to indicate if the shop specialises in mens or womens clothing. More expensive fashion clothes shops may be tagged shop=boutique but the difference is entirely arbitrary, essentially subjective and not amenable to repeatable tagging by different mappers. The tag should be avoided. - https://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kategori:Klesbutikker

Shoes

Base tag shop=shoes.

Accessories

Base tag: shop=accessories

  • Accessorize (?) .


Motor Trade

Car Dealers

Base tag shop=car. For new cars, and some second-hand specialists use brand=* for the car marques sold. Name should be name of dealer not of marque. (There is a slight issue here as large chain dealers also are brands, but established usage is for brand to contain car marques. Also not that many main car dealers will offer servicing, repairs and a parts shop: ultimately these might be micro-mapped.


Car Repair & Servicing

Base tag shop=car_repair. Substantial cross-over between this and shop=car_parts for chains which specialise in Exhausts, Tyres etc.

Furniture, Furnishings & Interiors

shop=bathroom_furnishing

shop=furniture

https://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kategori:M%C3%B8belselskaper

shop=interior_decoration

Other (uncategorised) Shops

Beauty

shop=beauty is more usually used for shops providing 'beaury' services, such as nails, tanning etc.


Bookshops

shop=books - https://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kategori:Norske_bokhandler


shop=charity

shop=chemist

  • Aseco

shop=kitchen


shop=mobile_phone

shop=music

shop=newsagent & shop=kiosk

Even though everything is called a kiosk in Norway, most "shop=kiosk" are shop=newsagent. As of January 2015 there are 15 newsagents and ~800 kiosks in Norway.

Use shop=kiosk for a similar shop in a little freestanding kiosk box, e.g. located in the middle of a square, or possibly for a very small box shop as part of a bigger building. The shop is normally so small that customers cannot enter the shop.

shop=newsagent is a very similar type of shop to a kiosk in terms of products sold (primarily newspapers & magazines). However a newsagent is a proper shop, so a slightly bigger building or a normal sized shop in a row of shops

shop=optician

shop=outdoor

shop=pet

shop=photo

https://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kategori:Norske_fotobutikker
