Status: In use

Use tag landuse=industrial to delineate areas of land used for industrial purposes. Industrial land may include buildings like workshops, factories or warehouses and their associated infrastructure (car parks, service roads, yards and so-on). Occasionally several industrial tenants may occupy one property in which case the property itself may be known as an industrial park.

How to map

Place tag landuse=industrial on the node or area.

When not to use

This tag should only be used for areas which are - as a whole - primarily used for industrial purposes. It should not be used sweepingly for larger areas containing industrial infrastructure at different places but most of the area as a whole not being used industrially like fields of oil wells. In such cases the individual sites should be tagged with landuse=industrial but not the whole area.
