Education Month

June 2011 is education month. We'll map the places that we associate with educating ourselves and others. Is the primary school that you attended included in OpenStreetMap? Your high school? Add those places to the map. We'll look at post-secondary schools and other places associated with education as the month progresses.

Post-secondary schools, College and University

The Project of the Week is to include post-secondary schools from your area in OpenStreetMap.

Required tags

A university or college may be included in OpenStreetMap as either a node, area, or relation but should not be included as more than one of these. Best practice in OSM is for a single thing to be represented once in the DB.

Either way, add the following tags to the university element.

Note: Often, universities and colleges are larger objects with multiple buildings, walkways, parking areas, recreation areas and other features. Consider mapping these with appropriate detail within the university boundary. These should not have the amenity=university tag. One feature, one OSM element. One university, one area drawn around the university grounds.

Optional tags

Add addressing information for the university as well.

Wheelchair accessible?
