Common Values

Value Description Image Status
surface One level of parking on the ground. P3030027ParkingLot wb.jpg Approved
underground Underground parking. Christian Wirth - Tiefgarage Hauptplatz.jpg Approved
multi-storey Two or more levels of parking decks in a building structure. A common "parking garage" in the US. Prefer this tag to "parking=garage". Multi-storey car park, Percy Street (geograph 1666894).jpg Approved
lane This tag is used to explicitly map parking on the carriage way. Such parking areas essentially take up a part of the surface area of the road. Often, mapping parking areas part of the carriage way can more efficiently be done using parking:lane=*, especially when no micromapping is desired. 20201001-parking-streetside 01.jpg In use
street_side Area suitable or designated for parking, which is directly adjacent to the carriageway of a road (but not on lane – in this case see parking:lane=*) and can be reached directly from the roadway without having to use an access way. Consider using parking:lane=* if the street-side parking spaces are stretched over a longer section of the road and no micromapping of these areas is desired. 20200925-parking-lined-perpendicular.jpg Approved
carports Structure used to offer limited protection to vehicles, primarily cars, from the elements (Carports on Wikipedia). Typically without walls. Carport-gewölbt.jpg Approved
rooftop One level of a parking deck on top of the building. Seattle - rooftop parking lot of the Fred Rogers Building from atop the Brunswick Building.jpg In use
garage_boxes One level buildings with multiple individual boxes for one car, each, usually made of brick and metal. Usually, this area belong to garage cooperative with own name, chairman, budget, rules, security, etc. Bhv-alte-garagen hg.jpg Approved
layby Parking at a lay-by (a term used predominantly on the British Isles) or rest area alongside a major road. A lay-by or rest-area is a facility, often rural, alongside a major road where motorists can take a break en-route to their destination Lay-by and picnic area off the A479 - geograph.org.uk - 271912.jpg In use
sheds Private hangars for vehicles, located close to owner's home. Often constructed of profiled metal. By contrast, a private 'garage' usually has walls and a locking door, with room for 1-3 cars usually; for these use the tag building=garage instead. 2009-365-232 Let it Rain-Snow (3858492698).jpg Approved
