Still proposal

Hi the key for the feature is still in proposal ,How can this page be here even before the key is approved.--Muzirian (talk) 10:19, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

The wiki documents a the common understanding by mappers how to use a particular tag. This tag is used about 7000 times, so it needs documentation. Significant use by many mappers is one way to establish a tag; a proposal/voting process is another. --Polarbear w (talk) 23:16, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

The sense of this tag

"(describing the human use..." So this is about the usage. Right? But this tags says nothing about the usage! In this way it has the same meaning like natural=grass.

If it's about the usage of an area there should be a usage tag, isn't it? Some ideas...


  • street_side_green
  • public (in a park)
  • garden_design (as a piece of a designt garden)

Used in this way I don't understand the sense of this tag. --EinKonstanzer (talk) 10:35, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

Sorry you misread the description. Landuse is about the use, natural is about unused natural geographical features. Landcover is about the presence of grass, independent if it is used or not, and independent of what the landuse of the area is, e.g. a patch of grass on a landuse=retail. Have a look at the proposal page which explains that in more detail. I'll also clarify the description. --Polarbear w (talk) 10:52, 12 September 2017 (UTC)
