A structure to protect from rain.

For bus shelters in local public transport use: public_transport=platform + shelter=yes

How to map?

Set a node node at the center of the feature or draw an area area along its outline.

Tag it with amenity=shelter + shelter_type=weather_shelter

When hiking people need water. Consider making sure that all streams, rivers and lakes near the shelter are also mapped.
