User:U715371/Dedication instead of name

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Many POIs in fact do not have a name or the name is unknown. In such cases mappers should not set the name=* Tag. Instead they should use a tag which contains for example the name of the person to which the POI is dedicated.

Suggestions

memorial:dedication=* for Memorials without names.

name:dedication=* for Names which are abbreviated and dedicated to a person. ...
