Main article: Places

Used to indicate that a particular location is known by a particular name, to indicate what sort of "place" it is. A place tag should exist for every significant human settlements (city, town, suburb, etc.) and also for notable unpopulated, named places.

Usage

Nodes

The simplest way to tag a place is to position a node Node at the recognized centre of the place, which may be location of the town hall, central square, or similar for a populated place.

Areas

You can also define a boundary for a place by creating an Area Area and tagging it with the place=* tag.

Additional tags

If you have a way of knowing the population of a place (from a free data source), the population=* tag typically is added to the same object the place tag appears on.

Also useful is the the addition of wikidata=*/wikipedia=*.
