Parts of a Room?

These being indoor are really parts of a room, they are usually surrounded by walls. Typically these areas have particular functions within the room e.g. an opera theatre will have a stage, an orchestra pit and an auditorium. These room parts could be tagged similar to building parts - room:part=stage/orchestra_pit/auditorium/* as closed ways. Warin61 (talk) 02:03, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

Definition incomprehensive

I do not understand the definition of this feature, where can there not be walls? Maybe this is about size? In all example images, the space is clearly delimited by walls. Spaces can also be delimited by other means, e.g. by curtains, glass, falling water, light, fog, whatever. --Dieterdreist (talk) 16:30, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

Hello, in my opinion this is not about size, it is about dividing up a walled room into separate spaces. One room can have many different areas inside it. In both of the photo examples there are unwalled areas that are designated for different purposes. One indoor area can be created for each unwalled designated area. An indoor room (with walls) can be separated into many indoor areas (without walls). Yes, spaces can be divided by curtains, glass, falling water, a painted line on the floor, etcetera.

This tag can be used for indoor spaces which do not have walls along all their boundaries. For example, an elevated platform with stairs leading up to it.
I don't think the example images are ideal, and aren't what I had in mind when working on SIT. I could easily imagine these being mapped as one indoor=room with several nodes or polygons for the various amenities/facilities inside. --Tordanik 18:22, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
