A general tourism=attraction is not enough - this tag should be used only in addition to the main tag describing the feature.. This tag may be added to objects to indicate that the item is interesting for tourists. Note that tagging just
For example tourism=attraction + name=Foobar Waterfall is not the correct way to tag a waterfall named Foobar, such object should be tagged rather with waterway=waterfall + tourism=attraction + name=Foobar.
This tagging does not distinguish between major tourism attractions (for example a theme park) and minor tourism attractions (for example a statue inside the theme park).
Not a main tag
Its correct usage is often misunderstood. The tourism=attraction tag is not a main tag that needs to be detailed with a attraction=* subtag (such as is done with information=*, service=*, residential=*, and many others). Instead, the attraction=* tag is completely independend of this tag.
