Additional parking types for amenity=parking

Rationale

On the territory of Russia (and, i think, in other countries) are quite common types of parking lots, which can not be reflected with current values of parking=* in amenity=parking.

Why amenity=parking

  • Because this is space in which to park a car or other vehicle.
  • According to Tag:amenity=parking, only public parking lots should be tagged, but tagwatch shows usage amenity=parking with access=private. Mapnik and osmrender support this too.

Why not landuse=garages

  • Very specific thing for first-level tag.
  • May be small and placed into residential area.

See opposite proposal.

Why not building=garage

  • This is not a single structure, the complex can consist of hundreds or even thousands of buildings.
  • May be located far away from home.

How To Tag

Usually only owners has access to this objects, so tag access=private should be added.

  • I approve this proposal I approve this proposal.. With two exceptions: Landuse=garages and building=garage may be used aswell. This proposal is for construction and access, landuse for administrative assignment and building for layout. --Vovanium 08:58, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
  • I approve this proposal I approve this proposal.. But I'd use singular not plural for the keys (parking=shed instead of sheds, box instead of boxes). so you can use it for single carparks as well. amenity=parking already provides parking=<type>, so I see this as an extension. -- Dieterdreist 09:46, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
  • I approve this proposal I approve this proposal.. -- Shadowjack 10:59, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. -- landuse=residential covers lots of buildings, this proposal doesn't differ much. Delta foxtrot2 11:20, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. vote for landuse=garages instead --Ilis 12:14, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
  • I approve this proposal I approve this proposal. because we need more values and it better fits in amenity=parking rather than landuse=*, but I don't like the current values. See my suggested values.--Vsandre 13:42, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
  • I approve this proposal I approve this proposal. - Because tags does not realy matter, but we definitely need a way to tag garage complexes. --Zkir 13:49, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. - I agree with using parking=* tags, but I don't like most of the values. You shouldn't disregard existing tagging with parking=garages if there is no reason to do so, and there is no proper distinction between sheds and garages. Generally, I'd prefer Vsandre's proposed values. --Tordanik 16:21, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
  • I approve this proposal I approve this proposal. -- Making an extension to parking makes sense, and fits well with existing tags. I would like to see a new tag for 'storage' that is not primarily for autos as well, but that can come another day. --DanHomerick 16:30, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
  • I vote for the list of values suggested by Vsandre. --Yuri Nazarov 16:41, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. -- landuse=garages is better, because it is a specific kind of land. And, despite of the boxes are always private, the territory itself may be not private. --Surly 04:47, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. -- I prefer landuse=garages. --Glebius 09:50, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
  • I approve this proposal I approve this proposal. -- I vote for the list of values suggested by Vsandre. Jrutila 10:51, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
  • I approve this proposal I approve this proposal. Hind 20:14, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
  • I approve this proposal I approve this proposal. I see no reason why this cannot live together with landuse=garages - one for the area, the other for the exact spaces --Skippern 02:21, 6 October 2009 (UTC)
