How to Map
Since this is a non-physical tag, it should always be combined with some appropriate (physical) tag. For example:
- With leisure=pitch when tagging big chess-boards in the open air
- Some users have added leisure=picnic_table to tag public chess-playing tables, however this is inconsistent since the table is not used for picnics (see discussion page)
- Priceless map A map that shows all free and public chess boards. The map is based on OSM data.
