Proposed features/Philippines-specific place types
|Philippine-specific place type types|
|Status:||Draft (under way)|
|Definition:||A tag that will indicate a place type specific or unique to the Philippines. It will be used along with the normal place=* tag.|
A tag is needed to indicate the type of place that is specific to the Philippines, like municipality, poblacion, district, barangay, sitio, purok, and subdivision.
Certain place types are specific to the Philippines. For example, district means a large portion of a city, composed of small barangays, which equals to neighbourhoods.
Also, the tag will be useful to determine poblacions, barangays, sitios, puroks, and municipalities (for town nodes only. For administrative boundary relations of the municipalities, they must include the ordinary place=municipality tag on the relation, but, mapping conventions in the Philippines discourage adding place tags on boundary relations.). It can be possibly used on housing developments (subdivisions) along with the place=* and landuse=residential
