How to map

Map the outline of the military area area and add

In cases where it is applicable also add military=* and military_service=*.

Note that in many cases military=* objects are mapped separately, for example military=bunker that may be within landuse=military or outside it (common for historic bunkers).

For military bases add military=base for the base area.

Additional tags

Note that following military=* values are rather tagged on separate objects. In many cases such object will not be within landuse=military. For example historic bunkers are commonly outside areas used by military.
