A tent is a building consisting of sheets of fabric or other material draped over, attached to a frame of poles or attached to a supporting rope.

In OSM only stationary or at least seasonal tents are to be mapped as separate buildings.

How to map

Set a node node at the center of the feature or draw an area area along its outline. Tag it with building=tent and optionally a name=*.

building=ger is used frequently to tag yurts and gers - portable, round tents. building=yurt has also been used a few times.
