Tag names

How about room:use=* instead of room:class=*, building also has building:use=*. --ThyMythos 14:29, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

What do you think about ? Example: More examples: Dotevo 14:40, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

POIs using several floors

How do you map POIs regarding indoor mapping, since they spread over several floors and the outline of POIs on the different floors do not overlap? Do you create several objects of/for the POI? Or maybe do you create some relation for the POI. Furthermore all the examples I saw did not seem to include such a case. Maybe nobody payed attention to that problem?

Have a look at Simple Indoor Tagging --Andi 07:29, 16 December 2014 (UTC)


  • Are there already engines rendering several levels in buildings or subway stations?
  • Idea: If there are levels in an area, there shall be an icon placed. If you click it, you can choose with one of the levels (e.g. 2nd floor) shall be displayed.


There are many examples on the Indoor Mapping Places list from various nations, however the list is not alphabetized by national name. If there are no objections, I'll sort them by country name from A-Z. --Chachafish (talk) 01:10, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

Posts, columns

Besides walls and doors, do mention how to tag e.g., grandiose w:Column#Greek_and_Romans, all the way down to simple support posts. Jidanni (talk) 19:19, 29 March 2020 (UTC)


Mention how to tags windows. Their location might be a lifesaver, or at least give us a nice place to eat lunch in an otherwise shuttered museum. Jidanni (talk) 19:19, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
