range distance might be of interest, and for me also whether I am allowed to shoot with crossbow or bow and arrow. I also know that some ranges does not allow pistols, and some do not allow rifles, so type of weapon should also be tagged. --Skippern 18:39, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

tag for physical object

According to sport, the sport tag may only be used as an additional tag to some object, which has to be tagged as the object. So, what is a shooting range? Is it a recreation_ground? --Ipofanes 04:32, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

I think we should consider scrapping this entirely and redoing it. leisure=range sport=* pistol,rifle,archery for dedicated target shooting facilities and leisure=combat_sport_field sport=paintball,airsoft,laser_tag,boffer_combat,sca_heavy_combat for dedicated facilities for large scale combat sports. This is more consistent with other usage of the 'sport' tag, and eliminates the 'type' tag which eliminates many conflicts with other type tags (Such as multipolygons) --Hai-Etlik 23:17, 5 November 2010 (UTC)


On other maps (at least in Sweden) shooting ranges are usually marked with an arrow that stretches over the range in the direction of the shooting. Something similar would be nice to do in OSM. --Erik Lundin 13:03, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

The object would have to have a direction, too, then. Unfortunately, sport=shooting may only apply to nodes and closed paths.--Ipofanes 04:30, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

CLosed to public

I encountered a range that is only open to the local police department. With advice that I received in #osm , it's suggested to add the tag access=private for any ranges not open to the general public.
