Number of seats on a bench. Almost always used with amenity=bench.

Some mappers prefer this tag instead of the more widely used capacity=* which is used for features like amenity=restaurant,tourism=alpine_hut etc. to state the maximum number of persons who can fit in the feature. However, capacity=* has been used almost 4000 times with amenity=bench features.

Rarely this tag has been used with other features to describe the number of seats (similar to capacity:seats=*) or the capacity of the feature (similar to capacity=*)
