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)
