I want to make contract with others interested in mapping the state of Nayarit....JohanG

Sobre preparatorias y centros de bachillerato

Encuentro que la convención aquí con respecto a instituciones de educación media superior es usar amenity=college. Sin embargo, los colleges en Estados Unidos son órganos de educación superior más o menos similares a una Facultad aislada o a una especialidad (p. ej. la Facultad de Derecho de la Barra Nacional de Abogados). Otros países usan college para escuelas con especialidades o diplomados superiores y o técnicos, pero creo que en ningún caso se utiliza para una institución de nivel medio superior. Lo que es más o menos equivalente a la media superior en México se describe en la Wikipedia.

Mi propuesta concreta es utilizar amenity=school para instituciones de educación media superior y, acaso, discutir la pertinencia de la etiqueta "college" en instituciones que ofrecen educación técnica (CONALEP, CBTIS, CECYT, por ejemplo).

Refs of Autopistas

Most of the motorways are ref'ed MEX-n. Is this something really used in Mexican maps or is this just coming from US maps?

INEGI's naming convention states that Federal motorways are named MEXn (eg. MEX40), but State motorways are named STATEn (eg. NL85). --Luis Latin 04:19, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Fuel stations

Here's how I tag a typical PEMEX fuel station:

  • amenity=fuel
  • brand=PEMEX
  • ref=ref number; number of station as stated on its sign, e.g. ref=2861
  • name=PEMEX ref number; e.g. name=PEMEX 2861
  • fuel:octane_91=yes; Pemex Magna with 87 AKI has approximately 91 RON
  • fuel:octane_95=yes; Pemex Premium with 92 AKI is maybe even slightly better than 95 RON
  • fuel:diesel=yes = Pemex Diesel

Information about all PEMEX fuel stations is available here: http://www.ref.pemex.com/index.cfm?action=content&sectionID=11&catID=212

Map it's a bit intrussive

Can we please remove or relocate the map elsewhere? It's a bit annoying when you scroll down the page and it stops because the map starts zooming out.--Absay (talk) 18:51, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
