New proposal is at Proposed features/service=parking aisle.

Summary

A parking_aisle is an area in a parking lot in between parking spaces so that vehicles can drive into and out of the spaces.

Although there is a amenity=parking tag available for parking areas, the amenity=parking tag does not show the layout of the parking lanes themselves. With the increasing use of aerial and satellite imagery in OSM it is now feasible to map out the layout along with entrance and exits of the parking area.

Reasoning

For Main roads in a parking area highway=service works fine as described in Parking, but for individual lanes they are too wide and clutter the area. Take this area for example http://openstreetmap.org/?lat=52.46965&lon=13.36844&zoom=16&layers=B00FT It looks decent at zoom=17,18, but when you zoom out to 14,15,16 the roads clutter together. That's why highway=parking_aisle would not be viewable beyond zoom=17 (16 at most).

How to Map

ElementWay.png To map parking_lane ways nothing else than a simple way is required. Add the highway=parking_aisle tag to it and a oneway=* tag if appropriate.

Example & Description

Width is thinner than highway=service roads.

Viewable at Only zoom=17 and 18.

  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. - highway=service is appropriate and sufficient here; don't change the tagging scheme to work around rendering issues. -- Eugene van der Pijll 07:23, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
