The tag landuse=research has been used to tag an area used for research. The tags amenity=research_institute and office=research are more commonly used for similar features, however.

Examples:

  • research institutes
  • nuclear research
  • radioastronomy
  • corporate research and development sites
  • agricultural and forestry investigational sites


How to map

Draw the whole area and tag with landuse=research. If the area has a name then add it using name=*. More specific tags, such as the type of (research=*) should be added to the specific institutes, not the landuse.
