Area used for military purposes

How to map?

Map an outline of the military area area and add

In case where it is applicable add also military=*.

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)

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.
