why use "man_made=works" ?

  • I think it collide with "building=industrial", "building=factory" and "landuse=industrial" and i propose to "delete" this Tag.
    Or why should we use this Tag?

No, there is no "collission", at most there is some redundancy (but actually there isn't real redundancy, because landuse=industrial is about industrial landuse and includes storage and distribution, while works is only about a production facility). Building is not about a whole plant but about a single building. --Dieterdreist (talk) 11:15, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
Currently I would suggest to try to avoid using this "man_made" tag in favour of industrial=* which seems fairly consistent also as a self standing tag, not necessarily a landuse=industrial subtag. sorcrosc (talk) 15:02, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

waterworks and public works

It seems that wikipedia:waterworks and wikipedia:Public works fall in this category, although the icon used looks like it could be 'industrial' (this page also needs to be cleaned-up)

(I moved this discussion from the tag page to this discussion page, but I do not agree). --Dieterdreist (talk) 11:22, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
Under the current definition as proposed (production) waterworks won't fit under this key. Maybe something like man_made=public_works would fit better? --Dieterdreist (talk) 11:22, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
