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 buildings.

How to map

Draw an area marking this feature. Tag it with building=tent and optionally a name=*.

It is also OK to set a node at its center, if mapping as area is impossible.

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