Status: in use

Use place=hamlet for an isolated settlement, typically with less than 100-200 inhabitants, although this may vary by country. For a larger isolated settlement consider using place=village or place=town; for smaller ones consider using place=isolated_dwelling. For an unoccupied place consider place=locality. For a named area within a larger populated place, such as a town, city or village consider using place=suburb or place=neighbourhood.

How to map

Place a node at the center of the hamlet and tag it place=hamlet.

Mapping hamlets as areas

The most common method of mapping hamlets is with a node placed at the center. Some mappers however map hamlets with an area instead of using a node. Hamlets often do not have a verifiable outline though and different interpretations of the meaning of areas representing populated places exist - more details can be found on the place key page. Data users should not expect the area geometries of hamlets to have a particular meaning.
