Status: In use

Use place=hamlet for an isolated settlement, typically with less than 100-200 inhabitants, although this may vary by country. For a larger isolated settlement consider using place=village or place=town; for smaller ones consider using place=isolated_dwelling. For an unoccupied place consider place=locality. For a named area within a larger populated place, such as a town, city or village consider using place=suburb or place=neighbourhood.

How to map

Add the place=hamlet to appropriate the area or node, together with name=* and where available; also add population=*, wikipedia=*, is_in=*, etc.
