Use amenity=parking_space to map a single parking space on a parking lot. Mapping parking spaces is an addition, not a replacement, to mapping a whole parking lot with amenity=parking.
How to map
Depiction of this tag use in relation with others road elements
||Mandatory tag for defining an area that contains 1 to n parking spaces.
||If the parking space is managed in another third party application the internal ID of this space can be noted here to offer the possibility of an connection from the space in OSM to the third party system. If more than one application needs to note its ID, the notation changes to ref:<vendor>=* (for example ref:hertz=*, ref:airport_JFK=*)
||If the parking space has a number, license plate or other written information printed on its surface or on a plate in front of the space, it should be put in the name tag. Examples: 1, 2, 3, L6F-33S, Big Boss parking space
||If an area represents more than one parking space (of equal kind), use capacity=* to define the number of parking spaces it represents. The default value for capacity=* is "1" if not mapped otherwise.
Note that the separation into different capacity:*=* tags for special interest groups is not supported for amenity=parking_space. Instead use access roles if certain parking spaces are only for certain people.
||For defining the type of parking space, e.g. disabled, normal, charging, parent etc. See parking_space=* for more details of how to tag.
||See chapter General tags in the proposal for tags that can be applied to spaces, entrances and relations.
When not to use amenity=parking_space
- When you cannot draw individual parking spaces, e.g. because no high-resolution image is available. Note that there may still be other surveying methods which make it possible to draw individual spaces.
- If you don't want to put a lot of effort into micro-mapping, it is totally ok, to simply draw a amenity=parking around the whole parking lot.
- Note that amenity=parking_space should not be mapped instead of amenity=parking, but inside of the amenity=parking (i. e. keep the enclosing amenity=parking).
Disabled parking and other access restrictions
For a much more detailed explanation of the new scheme using amenity=parking_space, amenity=parking_entrance and site relations, please read the proposal. You will also find information on how to tag access restrictions for certain kind of user roles (parent parking, disabled parking).
Parking spaces are rendered on the Standard tile layer.
