  • building:part=* - This tag is used to mark a part of a building, which has attributes, different from such ones at other parts. It is about "gross" buildings, i.e. including walls, roofs and other structure, and is mainly used in Simple_3D_Buildings.

The tag building:part=* is not in the Simple_Indoor_Tagging and should not be used for rooms.
