|Status:||Proposed (under way)|
|Definition:||A beach/resort/etc which is officially designated as nudist, but nudity is not obligatory. Basically an official public nude beach.|
Key:nudism should be extended with :designated value.
- Now an official nude beach can only be set to nudism:yes or :obligatory. A designated nude beach is a beach which is officially designated as nudist, but nudity is not obligatory. These are usually public nude beaches that do not belong to a resort. Also, in nudist campsites and resorts nudity is usually required only at the pool or the beach, so the resort should be set to :designated and only its beach should be :obligatory.
- The value is already in use (I guess unofficially). There are more than 200 nudism:designated objects: https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/nudism#values The iD editor of OSM has this value in the drop-down for the nudist key.
- Even our Key:nudism page mentions it: "Other frequently used values: designated - intended for nudist use by law or owner, something between "yes" and "obligatory" "
My proposal for the complete tag description:
|yes||allowed||allowed and generally expected|
|no||prohibited||prohibited or asking for trouble|
|obligatory||obligatory||required by official designation or owner|
|designated||designated||officially designated, but nudity is not obligatory (usually public nude beaches)|
|prevalent, largely expected|
|permissive||not unusual, wilderness areas|
While the order of values technically doesn't matter we may think about changing it to "descending order of nudity", ie.: obligatory - designated - yes - customary - permissive - no, to help understand the differences. On the other hand "yes" is kind of an umbrella value for cases when someone is not sure about the exact status, so we ought to keep it at the top.
nudism:designated: Sahara beach is a famous nude beach along the northern coast of Rab island in Croatia. It is officially designated, yet in high season half the visitors are wearing swimsuits. https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/429563775
nudism:obligatory: Bunculuka nudist camping on Krk island has its own beach where visitors are required to be nude by the camping's regulations. They can wear clothes in the campsite, though. https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4966736152
nudism:yes (or :customary): Vrženica beach is close to the above Bunculuka resort and it's frequented mostly by nudists. It's not officially designated, it's just used by nudists because the vicinity of the naturist campsite. https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/130377779
