Beet is an American English, Beetroot is UK English and should be used in OSM. I have changed the page to reflect this. At present there are some 550 uses, mostly in northern Italy. I have made comment on a very few change sets and see what the response is. Warin61 (talk) 23:37, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
- Looks like there are many different kinds - sugarbeet being another main crop. So back to the generic 'beet'. Warin61 (talk) 01:04, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
Crops only - no infrastructure
Crops only - no tree/field
Unless the area is a nursery then the crop is the produce e.g. a pear, not the tree e.g. pear_tree so the crop values should not have either tree nor field in it. Warin61 (talk) 23:17, 8 July 2017 (UTC)
Adding crop keys
We are currently in the process of collecting data for the OpenStreetMap app StreetComplete. Therefore we identified some missing crops, which we'd like to add.
See https://github.com/westnordost/StreetComplete/issues/368 for the whole project. Using a parser (https://github.com/rugk/crops-parser) we identified some missing crops. Before adding them, I'll list them here, so you can discuss anything if wanted:
Chillies and peppers- green crop=pepper orchard Chillies and peppers- dry crop=pepper orchard Jute & Jute-like Fibres crop=jute farmland Jute crop=jute farmland Vanilla crop=vanilla orchard Sisal crop=sisal farmland Cinnamon crop=cinnamon orchard
I'll add another list for the tree keys on the corresponding wiki page.
Happy to hear any feedback.
Replace with produce key?
Should this key be replaced by produce=*? That looks to provide similar if not the same information, and it is better documented. Produce is also more usable across other keys for example shops=* as well as landuse=*. Taginfo is busy at the moment otherwise I'd compare the database usages. Warin61 (talk) 04:31, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
