Proposed features/shop subtags
|Status:||Proposed (under way)|
|Definition:||States which services a shop offers in detail|
This proposal is NOT about the possible (sub)types for each shop (represented by x,y,z here,
see shop=motorcycle,shop=boat or shop=ski for examples),
but only about the principle to use the namespaces sales, rental, parts, repair, type in general.
There are some examples below for shoptype.
Shops often offer different services,
such as a shop=clothes may also offer shoes,
a shop=sports may offer equipment for different types of sport,
a shop=boat may offer different boat types and jetskis or surfboards
a shop=motorcycle may also offer bicycle services,
a *_repair may also sell items
To use subtags avoids having to create a second (or even third) shop for the same proprietor
to express what's offered.
Example for "types" :
The "shoptype" is always taken from an existing shop,
but may also be used with other shops :
(may be used with shop=rental/tourism=hotel/shop=car and others)
(may be used with shop=boutique/shop=fashion/shop=department_store/shop=mall)
(may be used with shop=supermarket/shop=convenience/amenity=marketplace/shop=department_store/shop=mall)
Most shop types will offer
and different types of the "main item" they sell.
Potentially all that have shop POIs, such as https://wheelmap.org/en
