What is a "big bench"? A big bench is a giant wooden bench (usually 3.50mt x 1.80mt) located in a public and generally accessible place (usually a park or a playground) with the goal of providing a special viewpoint and a spot for picture taking.


The increasing number of big benches (134 on the date of this draft) requires an agreed mapping schema.
