How to map. Area of the pool

We should maybe have a "how to map" section on this page. One question for that is... do we draw the way Way around the edge of the watery area of a swimming pool, or around the wider building (when mapping a swimming pool facility) ? I'm sure that's been discussed somewhere before -- Harry Wood (talk) 12:49, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

  • Personally, I am marking with a single node. I am thinking very roughly of the density of swimming pools in a residential area as a co-variate with affluence; to this end, I'm tagging with a node every swimming pool I find while editing (I don't focus on finding these, but if I see one, I tag it). At some point in the future, one might do a density-vs.-demographics study ... something which only OSM could be used for (no other mapping resource in widespread use support consistent tagging of private swimming pools that I know of). --Ceyockey (talk) 00:13, 18 February 2016 (UTC)

What if kids only swimming pool ?

How should we label swimming pools dedicated for small children ?

Unconsistent Mapping

I feel the mapping rules are inconsistent:

  • If I have a facility with pools intended for sports only, I mark the area as sports=swimming, and the water area as leisure=swimming_pool.
  • If I have a facility with slides and pools, I mark the area as leisure=water_park, and the water as leisure=swimming_pool.
  • But if I have a outdoors facility with pools intended for recreation, I mark the actual water areas only, despite of the entire area being limited to customers only. (Marking the pools as access=customers would be false, since the access is restricted to the whole facility, not only the actual pools).

How do I mark that the pools are in a "customer access only" garden??? --Josemoya (talk) 15:19, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
