Talk:Tag:shop=agrarian

Jump to: navigation, search

This is not a very useful tag name. No would talk about an agrarian shop in english. The tag needs to be much better documented with concrete examples. I would consider there are likely to be at least two distinct categories: places which sell large quantities of seeds and major agricultural equipment to large scale farmers (>100 ha), and those selling smaller machines etc. to hobbyists, smallholders (<10ha) etc. There already exists for the shop=country_store which certainly partially covers the latter category at least in North America, UK and Scandinavia.

Thank you SK53. I was trying to find something like that! But I'm bad in English. And I could not find this tag myself.

Google translate "A country store" - "Загородный магазин"(russian) meen "Out-of-town store". What about the store in the city? Or Google incorrectly translated?

Yes that would be a literal translation, but a better description is a shop specialising in selling products specifically for people who live in the countryside. This is the term most widely used in the UK: I think the actual wiki page covers other terms and american usage. If you can contribute anything about the type of shop you are familiar with in Russia that would be really good: picture of a store from outside & a rough list of the sorts of things it sells. We had a great discussion on OSM diary entries from a US mapper which really helped clarify information. In the meantime I'll probably but cross links "See Also" on both pages.

Please help me deal with this store.--Илья (talk) 06:38, 25 July 2017 (UTC)
Very interesting. It's much smaller & rougher as a retail outlet than the shops I've mapped in the UK, but the actual sizes of bags of product are relatively small scale. The advert implies they sell supplies, inter alia, for people keeping a small number of chickens. So this looks like a similar market segment: people who live in the country but are not large scale farmers. However it does not sell the other things which make the country store category so distinctive: clothes and related life-style products. For now I would suggest avoiding shop=agrarian, but I'd be happy with agricultural_supplies which is clearer in english. SK53 (talk) 14:22, 25 July 2017 (UTC)
