Cavity entrance

A possible alternative tagging would be "man_made=cavity_entrance", because then we could also map underground churches, rock dwellings, hermit's houses and the like. --Gormo (talk) 08:39, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

But I like man_made=cellar_entrance also. --Gormo (talk) 11:40, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
I agree with the need of including underground churches, people's dwellings, hermit's houses and the like, either by "man_made=cavity_entrance" or by adding "man_made=cellar entrance" and then "cellar_type"=church, hermit_house or house. --Josemoya (talk) 10:31, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

How about entrance=cellar?

If not, does man made=cellar entrance imply entrance=yes? Xxzme (talk) 08:54, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

I would assume that it implies entrance=yes. --Gormo (talk) 11:40, 23 January 2015 (UTC)


Does cellar:type stand for the consistence of the floor or walls or ceiling? If it's about the walls (which I suppose, because brick floors would be highly unusual), then I suggest a more specific key like cellar:walls=* instead. A "cellar type" could be anything... --Fkv (talk) 22:06, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

I like cellar:walls, because this would move one of the two "types" (usage and material) out of cellar:type. --Gormo (talk) 11:41, 23 January 2015 (UTC) Yes, change to walls, is clearer. Use is already in cellar:use, so ignore my previous comment. --Gormo (talk) 11:42, 23 January 2015 (UTC)


hierarchical values

As noted in the german discussion page, wine should be a sub-value of storage, e.g. via a subkey such as storage=*. --Fkv (talk) 22:31, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

historical use

The usage of an underground object may vary over time. E.g. a cellar may be built as a wine cellar, but be used for other storage later on. How can we tag both the current and the original usage? Even more complicated, a mine may be used as a cellar later on. If you tag it man_made=adit_entrance + disused=yes + cellar:use=storage, it is not clear if disused=yes refers to man_made=adit_entrance or to cellar:use=storage. --Fkv (talk) 22:31, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

additional values

  • "production", certainly combined with a subkey (product=* or output=* or similar) to specify: mushrooms/weapons/...
  • maybe also "bunker" (german "Luftschutzkeller" or "Luftschutzstollen") - or is that covered by military=bunker?
  • dwelling (example, currently mapped as cave)

--Fkv (talk) 22:57, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

bunker is covered by military=bunker. --Gormo (talk) 11:40, 23 January 2015 (UTC)


Why this new key gastronony=*? What's wrong with amenity=restaurant? --Fkv (talk) 22:36, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

that seems silly. I am editing that to amenity=restaurant. --Gormo (talk) 10:36, 23 January 2015 (UTC)


I think that there should be a distinctive way to tag erdstalls (German "Erdstall", plural: "Erdställe"). E.g. cellar=erdstall or cellar:type=erdstall or cellar:use=erdstall. --Fkv (talk) 22:41, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
