Grain Storage Centre
Status: Proposed (under way)
Proposed by: CapitaineMoustache
Tagging: industrial=grain_storage_centre
Applies to: node node, areas area
Definition: A large site with many silos and barns which concentrates crops from farms around before selling at best prices.
Drafted on: 2019-04-05
RFC start: 2019-04-05

Proposal

I propose this new value in order to add agricultural cooperatives sites in OpenStreetMap. In France, they are quite common, basically, it is a large site with many silos and barns which concentrates crops from farms around before selling at best prices. An example, la Cascap.

Rationale

Currently, it seems that such a site is commonly tagged (in France): landuse=industrial + industrial=agriculture + operator="cooperative's name" + operator:type=cooperative; however, the tag industrial=agriculture is not defined in the page Key:industrial and it would be too hard to define anyway because it is too ambiguous and large in my opinion, so I propose another value instead for those specific sites: industrial=grain_storage_centre.

Tagging

Implies landuse=industrial
Some combinaisons: name=*, operator=*, operator:type=*
Some useful tags for buildings around: man_made=silo, building=barn

Rendering

Features/Pages affected

It would be necessary to add this feature in the Key:industrial's template.

English is not my first language, I do my best ! :)

It would be cool if it was just landuse=storage_centre. Then material=grain could be added to it. Id go that route instead of the current proposal because 1. There's plenty of other similar storage centres that there is no common tag for at the moment. So it would kill a bunch of birds with one stone 2. Storage isn't really "industrial" per say.

Btw, are you aware there's already a draft for landuse=storage that was created a few months ago? That might be the route to go. Having "centre" at the end is completely pointless.
