La comunidá alcuerda ciertes combinaciones de claves y valores pa les etiquetes d'usu más común, que tómense como estándares informales. Sicasí, los usuarios puen crear etiquetes nueves p'ameyorar l'estilu del mapa o dar encontu a analises que dependen d'atributos de les carauterístiques qu'antes nun taben nel mapa. Puen alcontrase unes descripciones curties de les etiquetes rellacionaes con un tema o interés determináu usando les páxines de carauterístiques.

La mayoría de carauterístiques puen describise usando namái un pequeñu númberu d'etiquetes, como un camín con una etiqueta de clasificacion como highway=footway, y escurque tamién el nome usando name=*. Pero como esti ye un mapa mundial inclusivu, puen esistir munchos tipos diferentes de carauterístiques n'OpenStreetMap, casi toos ellos descritos con etiquetes.

Pa los detalles de más etiquetes y de cambios propuestos a les etiquetes esistentes visita Proposed features y Deprecated features.

Building

This is used to identify individual buildings or groups of connected buildings. See the page Buildings for further details on the usage of this tag and man_made=* for tagging of various other structures. The building tags are intended for the physical description of a building: for functions in the building (e.g. police station, church, townhall, museum) you should add additional tags like amenity=*, tourism=*, shop=* etc.

For example mapping building=supermarket is not enough to mark place as having an active supermarket shop, it just marks that building has form typical for supermarket buildings. shop=supermarket must be mapped to indicate an active supermarket shop. On the other hand shop=*/amenity=* is not indicating building by itself, building must be mapped with building=* tag.
