Create a set of tags to be used for mapping admission to different places.


Right now, if we want to tag a place that needs admission, we only have the tag access=*. This only says if you can go through there or not. The case when you need to buy a ticket to be somewhere is not described by any tag. Having this tag could be very useful for cases when the shop for tickets is not close to the place you need the ticket. That's when you need to route first to the place that sells the ticket, and then to the actual place you were going to.


  • Cinemas that have a displaced ticket shop.
  • Shops that sell skipass tickets for ski resorts.
  • Places that sell tickets for hiking and walking in nature, like National parks.


There is a whole set of tags that could be used, but the most important would be: access=admission and admission=issue

I think these tags should not be rendered in any way. Maybe only in some specialized maps.
