entering by foot

How do I tag entrances to the parking garage that you use to enter the parking and get your car. Erik Johansson 13:58, 4 October 2011 (BST)

you use parking_entrance for all entrances. the connected highway defines, who the target group is. for example, if the node with parking entrance connects to a highway=service, service=parking_aisle, it can be assumed that it is an entrance for cars, if the connected way is tagged with highway=footway it is for people by foot. --Flaimo 18:32, 4 October 2011 (BST)

Layer versus Level

Current text says in the Usage section: While underground or multi-storey parking facilities could be mapped using amenity=parking_space in combination with a layer tag, [...]. However I believe the key level=* is probably the correct one in this case, instead of layer=*. --Jgpacker (talk) 19:47, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

parking=* type

Thanks @geozeisig for adding the parking type. However, why should it be restricted to non-surface parking? --Polarbear w (talk) 16:14, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

The sentence "Parking entrances are only used for underground or multi storey parking, not for surface parking." was on this page from the beginning, it wasn't added by Geozeisig. --Tordanik 18:59, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Correct, though my question was not who added it, but if it is necessary to restrict its usage. parking=surface is being used >1000 times currently on nearly 2% of the mapped entrances. --Polarbear w (talk) 20:58, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
It is apparent from the arrangement of the roads at parking=surface where the driveways are. This is different for a parking multi-storey and an underground car park. For example, the East Site Mall on the 3rd and 4th floor has a parking level. But it only makes sense to draw the entrance to show in a 2D map. But that's just my opinion, if we want to change it we should discuss it elsewhere. --geozeisig (talk) 08:32, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
