Project Of The Week : Banks

Banks banks banks. Not the banks of a river, but financial institutions. I'll just run out to the bank for a moment. But which bank is closest and most convenient? Do you need a bank with wheelchair access, or with drive through service? Or are you looking for a late night automated teller machine? We can put all of this information on the map and that is the Project of the Week. Map your local banks.

Capital or Administrative Center

Someone asked to the list how to tag administrative centers in OpenStreetmap, since administrative center of different level can vary with the level. After some discussions 2 solutions came out to the light:

the capital node tagged with place=city/town/...


admin_level=*  on the relation of the boundary
with the node of the place as admin_centre role.


on the place node


RFC: Better Healthcare

What kind of doctor is amenity=doctors? What about other public health related services such as home nursing? Maybe you want to do detailed mapping of support groups, counselling centres, health related amenities or services, without using tags of all the other in some kind always lacking proposals.

These are the kind of things that this proposition aims to solve. It use a full set of subtags to categorised all sorts of informations about healthcare.
