Status: deprecated

exclamation mark

This feature has been labeled as deprecated. The recommended replacement is: entrance=yes, entrance=main or some other applicable value.
The reason is documented in Deprecated features. You are still free to continue to use or interpret this tag as you see fit since OpenStreetMap does not have “banned features”.
Under no circumstances should you (semi-)automatically change “deprecated” tags to something else in the database on a large scale without conforming to the automated edits code of conduct. Any such change will be reverted.


Proposal

This proposal aims to deprecate the school=entrance

Tagging and history

school=entrance has historically been used to tag where people (probably students) can enter their school.

This tagging around 1800 objects - a number that has been stable since 2014.

Rationale

This feature should be officially marked as deprecated as:


  • Entrances are tagged with entrance=*, which is widely understood and supported. This can replace all current values, especially for nodes
  • There is no support in any editor to add those
  • There is no support in any data user
  • Usage is very small (1800 objects) compared to entrance=* which has 3.000.000 objects
  • The wiki page on school=* already stated in 2018 that entrance=* is a better alternative
  • This tags uses the key school=*, which can be used for a decent tagging scheme, e.g. for subject or school level. (This is for a future proposal)

Examples

This node is an example of how the old tagging was converted into the new tagging.

Comments

Please comment on the discussion page.

I find it problematic that deprecation notice and the description mentions entrance=students, which apparently is neither documented nor used anywhere ... so the recommendation seems misguided to me. --Push-f (talk) 21:34, 29 June 2022 (UTC)

Oh, indeed. I quickly removed this mention; this is more of an access restriction. Should have been spotted in the RFC phase, but it slipped through Pietervdvn (talk) 22:04, 29 June 2022 (UTC)

  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. This proposal needs more research from author. This tag is often used for school gates. Even the linked example was not changed to entrance=*. The proposal should therefore give a hint to barrier=gate. The box only mentions entrance=yes and entrance=main. I suggest better description there. I am afraid of editing this by myself because there are already much votes. --Agent redd (talk) 08:10, 11 July 2022 (UTC)

  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. Using this rational then we must change all other "feature", with an entrance, to "feature=entrance"? I.e. building=entrance. Makes no sence al all! --Reino Baptista (talk) 15:01, 11 July 2022 (UTC)
