| amenity = parking
|A place for parking cars|
|Used on these elements|
|Tools for this tag|
Alternatively, use building=garage, building=garages and landuse=garages for private buildings used for the storage of vehicles. Also, amenity=car_sharing for parking spots for car share vehicles (car clubs), amenity=bicycle_parking for bicycle parking, amenity=motorcycle_parking for mortorcycle parking, tourism=caravan_site for dedicated bays for caravans and mooring=* for boats. For parking spaces along streets see Key:parking:lane.
Mapping a car park
Use a node for smaller car parks, or an area for a larger car park (but not both for the same facility) and tag it with amenity=parking. If you don't know the actual car park area or don't have time to draw it out then just tag a node.
Use name=* for the name (for example "Southlane Carpark") and ref=P1 for a reference. The capacity=* can be used to say how much space there is for different types of user. In addition use operator=* (for the name of the operator), website=* (for a website for the car park).
Roads leading to the carpark and exiting from it should be tagged as highway=service. Parking lanes can be tagged as highway=service with service=parking_aisle and appropriate oneway=* tags. As with the rest of the road network, care should be taken to create a routeable network. Ticket machines can be mapped as amenity=vending_machine in combination with vending=parking_tickets. amenity=parking_entrance is used to map entrances and exits to underground or multi-storey parking facilities. The amenity=parking_space can be used to map right down to the individual parking spaces.
The type=site relation can be used with site=parking to group parking spaces and parking entrances together to form one parking facility. If you use such a relation to describe the parking lot, it should not be mapped a second time using amenity=parking.
