US National Park Service Tagging: Places Points

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Places is a database for NPS employees to add and edit Points of Interest, or points/markers that have icons on the map. Any feature that deserves an icon, such as a trailhead, boating access point, toilet or parking lot, should be in this database so that the symbols can properly render on the NPS maps.

The lines and polygons of the features, such as parking lots or trails, should be mapped in OpenStreetMap. Park Tiles uses OSM.

Therefore, OSM creates the base layer of the maps and the Places database renders all of the symbols and icons.

If there are any questions about the tags, I recommend reading http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Great_Smoky_Mountains_National_Park. The team at Great Smoky Mountains did an excellent job documenting and walking through map issues.
