Status: in use

A settlement with between 1,000 and 10,000 inhabitants, although this may vary by country. For smaller isolated settlements consider using place=hamlet or place=isolated_dwelling; for larger settlements consider place=town.

How to Map

Place a node at the center of the village, like the central square, a central administrative or religious building or a central road junction and tag it place=village.

Mapping villages as areas

The most common method of mapping villages is with a node placed at the center. Some mappers however map villages with an area instead of using a node. Villages often do not have a verifiable outline though and different interpretations of the meaning of areas representing populated places exist - more details can be found on the place key page. This method also looses the information on the village center which is important for data users, in particular for routing. Data users should not expect the area geometries of villages to have a particular meaning.
