Status: Draft (under way)
Proposed by: k4r573n
Tagging: site=marketplace
Applies to: relation
Definition: This proposal covers a more detailed view on how to map a market.
Rendered as: Identical to amenity=marketplace
Drafted on: 2013-03-01

The aim of this Proposal is to provide a more detailt posibility to map a marketplace. Therefore it needs to offer the posibility to add as well stalls. Moreover I tried to reuse the already mapped surface which results in this proposal:


  • mapping of temporary Elements -> may be use an other database?!
  • stalls: invent new tags (bad) - no visibility on other maps (good) / reuse old tags (good) but on all other maps (bad)
