A way to group of features, for example buildings or amenities, which belong together. Examples: the various facilities associated with a school, college, university, airport or military bases.

It may contain number of buildings, a boundary to the site, and maybe other amenities such as swimming pools or tennis courts.

It is not necessary or appropriate to use a relation when all the elements contained within the boundary of the site belong to the site, and no elements beyond that boundary do belong. In this simple case simply tag the perimeter with all the appropriate tags. Users of the information can simply perform an 'is-in-polygon' test to determine which elements belong to the site.
