The key craft=* is used for a place producing or processing customized goods.

To differentiate between retail, services and crafts, shop=* is generally used for retail trade (focused on selling pre-produced goods), while craft=* is used for workshops producing small amounts of goods on demand and by order, and for the workplaces of tradespersons such as electricians and gardeners. Unlike man_made=works, used for factories and industrial facilities, the goods are often customized to the customers' needs and specially produced for them. If the place is a shop=* and craft=* at the same time with both being important both tags can be added. Places that are widely accepted as shops should not be tagged as crafts (for example shop=bakery or shop=butcher).

You are free to use values that match your needs as a mapper and your local or country environment, culture and language. If using the English language, please use the singular form, e.g. carpenter not carpenters or carpenter's. See JOSM preset for these keys and proposed features/Craft.



This is used as a place that produces or processes customised goods. See the page Crafts for more information on the usage of these tags.
