landuse=storage
Status: Draft (under way)
Proposed by: Fkv
Tagging: landuse=storage
Applies to: node, area
Definition: Land used for storage
Drafted on: 2019-01-06

A stack yard, lumber yard, timber yard, or any other area used for temporary or long-time storage.

Rationale

Plenty of map features exist for storage (see section "similar tags"), but they are mostly about buildings and other closed structures. This proposal is for storage predominantly in open air.

This is for temporary (short-term or long-term) storage only. For permanent storage, use landuse=landfill instead.

How to map

While mapping as a node is permitted when you have absolutely no idea about the extension of the area, mapping as an area (possibly a multipolygon) is recommended otherwise. It is also recommended to use storage=* to specify what is stored in that area.

The area may be part of landuse=industrial or landuse=forest etc.

Useful Combinations

storage=*
access=*
operator=*
seasonal=*
