To be used in conjunction with place=*.


Special OSM based programs for showing population ranks on the map may become easier to create; and will add more detail on how large the city is.


For example; Toronto would be tagged "population_rank:country=1"; Winnipeg would be "population_rank:country=7". Brandon, Manitoba would be "population_rank:province=2" and may include "population_rank:country=*"; as well.


population_rank:world=* population_rank:continent=* population_rank:country=* population_rank:province=* population_rank:region=* population_rank:municipality=* population_rank:state=*

Applies to

Any particular settlement (for example; cities or towns).
