Proposed features/Misc. urban open space
This map feature exist on Map_Features#Landuse and is actively in use
|Misc. urban open space|
|Status:||Draft (under way)|
|Definition:||Small areas of grass or other vegetation which aren't formal gardens or parks.|
Very often housing estates are punctuated by small areas of open grass, shrubs or small trees,or a dead end is formed by a significantly large road island, which is grassed. These don't really fall into a defined category like recreation_ground, village_green, park or common (and they are usually smaller). They are just breathing spaces in the urban environment.
It would be nice to have them rendered in green on a map.
Should be shown in green, perhaps a light shade to show that it isn't as significant as other green areas such as parks and recreation grounds.
Osmarender already renders
landuse=grass areas in green, with a darker green border. Mapnik currently ignores them.
Since this is intended for relatively small areas, it might only be shown at a fairly high zoom level.
(This proposal is the same as green_space which was voted down by 2 votes to 1 simply because the voters didn't like the name of the tag.)
