Why should start_date=* be used for the COMPLETION of the artwork? It seems to be absurd. --Marsupium 04:49, 27 September 2012 (BST)

Sorry, now I got it. :) --Marsupium (talk) 07:03, 17 May 2016 (UTC)


Why is it under tourism key ? Shouldn't be man_made=artwork ? Does every artwork is a tourism's object of interest ? Rafmar (talk) 09:53, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Well hotel and museum are problematic too in the sense that they're not just for tourists. You hit some problems like this when you try to classify the world. Maybe it's better than lumping everything under man_made -- Harry Wood (talk) 01:28, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
it depends on your definition of tourism in the case of hotels, while I agree that museums clearly in tourism are not classified optimally either.--Dieterdreist (talk) 11:43, 23 July 2016 (UTC)


Dimensions are a key statistic about artworks. The traditional order is H×W(×D), for two-dimensional or three-dimensional works. I have tagged public sculptures using length=* for depth. Michael Z. 2016-05-10 22:19 z

Did you use meter as the standard unit according to Map Features/Units? --Marsupium (talk) 07:03, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

Murals as lines

Shouldn't murals be tagged on lines rather than nodes or areas? It makes more sense to put it on a node, but not on areas unless it's on the floor. But in the case of wall murals, I think it would make more sense if they were tagged on lines. What do you guys think?

I agree --Dieterdreist (talk) 10:50, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
