How to Map

Set a node node or draw an area area along the outline of the office. Add the tags tourism=information + information=office.

Tags to use in combination

  • name=* - The primary name: in general, the most prominent signposted name or the most common name in the local language(s).
  • operator=* - Сompany, corporation, person or any other entity who is directly in charge of the current operation of a map object
  • Address - addr is the prefix for several addr:* keys to describe addresses.
  • website=* - Specifying the link to the official website for a feature.
  • opening_hours=* - Describes when something is open or closed. There is a specific standard format for this data.
  • wheelchair=* - Indicate if a special place can be used with wheelchairs.

Possible tagging mistakes

  • Possible synonym office=tourism - usage might okay if it is maybe used for back offices
  • Possible synonym office=guide - an office for tour guides, mountain guides, dive guides, etc.
