Use the tag place=plot to identify a named plot is a tract or parcel of land owned or meant to be owned by some owner.

place=plot is a subdivision at a level lower than place=neighbourhood or place=city_block.

place=plot is presently the lowest level of urban division in the place=* hierarchy.

According to Wikipedia's Land_lot, a plot is also known as a lot.

As any other OpenStreetMap object, a plot's boundaries are recorded by visual observation on the ground - so they do not necessarily match cadastral records, although Openstreetmap's plot does have some degree of kinship with its more administrative cousin, the cadastral plot.


place=plot is preferably used to tag an area.

Use name=* to record the plot's common name.

A plot's boundary is often materialized by a barrier=* such as barrier=wall or barrier=fence

Examples in Openstreetmap

Examples in the wild

West Africa

These images from Senegal show how each block is subdivided into land plots - each with a courtyard and several buildings that usually all belong to an extended family, often surrounded by a barrier=wall :
