MENTZ GmbH/Modellierungsvorschläge POI extra
On this page you can find the rarely used points of interest, which are in relation with mapping railway stations. The list is constantly being updated by the OSM-Community and therefore it is always up-to-date. The aim is to reflect the guidelines for modeling real features.

Points of Interest in OSM
This page should provide an overview about the POIs, which are used in OSM. By clicking on an element (POI-Tag) ,a detailed description, the most common application and the possible combinations with other tags will be shown.
On the top right is always an information box, where the most important elements of a feature can be found.
Below is a list with tags, which are usually being combined with the feature. Furthermore we can see, if the POI should be used as a node, way, closed way (area=yes) or as a relation. Finally it is also stated, if the POI is accepted.
It is possible, that some tags are automatically implicated. An Anliegerstraße has always additional tags, e.g. foot=*, bicycle=* und access=*). Other useful additional tags like the street name (name=*) or oneway streets (oneway=*) are suggested as well.
The possibilites of adding more tags is unlimited, but for every element the most useful tags have enforced in the community. In our example with the street, the tags (maxspeed=*), (lanes=*) and (surface=*) have enforced.
