|Definition:||description of items sold by a feature, usually a shop.|
An description of what is sold by a feature. Usually these 'features' are shops, some amenities also sell goods e.g. a pub sells beer.
Presently people are add uncoordinated 'property' tags for each type of shop. The first thing that is being identified are the items sold by the shop.
It would be better to have a sub tag that can be used under any shop type that uses the same system. It is also beneficial in that a 'general_store' can than use that same system, making searches easier?
The word 'sells' is chosen to reflect the intended use without any confusion.
The word 'sale' implies a single event over a limited time with reduced priced.
sells:bread:hovis=yes Note Hovis is a brand of bread rather than a type of bread.
This saves individual solution for each type of shop as is presently being propagated e.g.;
and there are, as yet, undocumented but placed in JOSM presets, tags for motorcycles!
To be used as a property key of features that sell items e.g. shops.
Some amenity values may also benefit from there addition. For example amenity=pub where it sells unexpected items (e.g. a pub in Tiboburra sells frozen meat, nearest shop that sells frozen meat would be 300 km away.).
These can be done for some things .. e.g. pub default sells:beer=yes !
Order of Items
Increasing order of detail, last item maker/brand.
Where all the products of one brand is sold the follow tags could be used;
OR each product could be added as separate tags;
OR even more detail could be used;
Nodes, Ways, Areas
Probably all shop value pages will need this as a possible property key.
Please comment on the tagging list.
