Any thoughts to an icon? What about a green parking symbol?

Discussion / Voting before 2007.11.04

I support this proposal. --SlowRider 00:35, 30 April 2007 (BST)
Actually I already did some tagging for stations of our local Carsharing Organisation while mapping in my Area. The tag I have been using was carsharing=Stadtmobil. Probably an URL to the Homepage of the Organisation should be added as well (Giggls Mon, 30 Apr 2007 12:17:50 +0200).

I suggest the proposed "network" tag to describe a cooperating system of carsharing stations. --Hawke 22:28, 11 June 2007 (BST)

After recent discussion on mailing list, I propose following structure:

  • amenity=carsharing
  • operator="Name of Operator" (e.g. "StreetCar", "Zipcar")
  • number=3 (for multiple cars at one location)

--Petz 11:48, 9 October 2007 (BST)

Shouldn't it be amenity=car_sharing to fit with the OSM convention for multiple word values? TomChance 12:17, 9 October 2007 (BST)
  • Instead of number I'd prefer capacity, which is already used for parkinglots. number could be mistaken as some kind of ID for that special place, assigned by the operator.
  • Such a number or ID which identifies this station within the operator's network would well fit in ref="123"

I also propose, due to great mutuality, to use amenity=bikesharing under the same conditions.
--Fröstel 12:01, 9 October 2007 (BST) Is there a need for a separate proposal page for bikesharing, or do we consider it as a variation of this proposal ? --Petz 16:24, 9 October 2007 (BST)

So can we agree on the following schema:

  • amenity=car_sharing
  • operator="Name of Operator" (e.g. "StreetCar", "Zipcar")
  • capacity="number of cars" (for multiple cars at one location)

--Petz 16:24, 9 October 2007 (BST)

Looks good to me -- TomChance 12:52, 10 October 2007 (BST)

Clean-up: moved from main page 21 October 2008

Icon

The Icon should be simliar to the proposed car_rental icon (A car symbol with a key), but with a "group of people" instead of the key

Comments

  • The former proposal was changed several times, so there wasn't a clear proposal/voting at all - I've moved the former discussion / voting to the discussion page and cleaned up this page. Unless there's no doubt about the last proposed tagset (which you can find above), we might just "re-vote" shortly.

Voting

  • Approval. Though I wonder if carsharing isn´t just some special kind of car_rental (carsharing is by definition a closed community, often with a fee on yearly basis, whereas car_rental is generally open to anyone). The Icon should be simliar to the proposed car_rental icon (A car symbol with a key), but with a "group of people" instead of the key? motp
    • I like your icon idea. If we can also put this into a 16*16 pixel icon to be recognizable, it would be perfect. -- Ulfl 23:16, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
      • Something like this: Car sharing 32.png (i just edited the proposed car_rental symbol a little bit, someone should do a proper svg later ;-). -- motp 20:29, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
        • I've tried with the Gimp to scale it down to 16*16 pixels and it's at least still recognizable :-) -- Ulfl 09:08, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
  • I support this proposal. Being a member of a car sharing organisation, I'd not treat it the same as car rentals. I like the idea for the icon being the same as car rentals except exchanging the key by a couple of people --SlowRider 21:14, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

  • I approve this proposal. There was discussion in 2005 about standard symbols for UK, Gernmany and also Belgium and someone might like to follow it up and see what was agreed. Is there an international standard? or a bunch of national ones? or what - search for the word 'symbol' in this docn http://www.carplus.org.uk/Resources/pdf/Carsharing_Paris_2005_minutes.pdf (PeterIto 06:41, 9 November 2007 (UTC))
