This is the user sandbox of Heddam. A user sandbox is a subpage of the user's user page. It serves as a testing spot and page development space for the user and is not an OpenStreetMap article.

Indoor maps or information can be used for various applications, e.g.
- Indoor Navigation/Routing
- 3D Visualization
- 2D Maps
- Public Participation
- Emergency response
- Interested Amenities Display (e.g. Toilets, Fire Extinguisher, First Aid Box)
for different venues, e.g.
- Train and subway stations
- Shopping Malls
- multi storey parking decks
- other public buildings
The indoor/use cases page contains a list of venue use case examples, with sample maps from the venues.
There is now a new subforum for Indoor-Mapping:
Let's try to increase the communication in this project. --Andi 12:03, 3 October 2012 (BST)
There is an API proposal you can implement on your backend to ensure other apps can link to your indoor navigation app.

For the current consensus see Simple Indoor Tagging. The tags below may be outdated or no longer used.
Tags in use
Please see Tagging above for more detailed information
- level=n - indicates floor level; interpretation of the values varies (see key page)
- <n> is usually an integer number, sometimes also one or two characters, sometimes combined (e.g. A,B,C,1,2,3).
- in any case, <n> should be ascending (towards the sky).
- in some cultures base level is indicated by level 0, in other cultures ground floor is level 1 (or A).
- there are also usages reported where fraction numbers are used (e.g. level=2.5) indicating a "mezzanine" or "intermediate level" (e.g. intermediate stairway platforms).
- room=yes - see key wiki page for additional values to describe the type more detailed. Room number ref=* and room name name=* are tagged as appropriate.
- entrance=yes - building entrance
- door=yes/hinged/sliding/no - interior doorways
- capacity=* - the occupant capacity of a room, storey, building or part of a building defined as the maximum number of persons it is designed to hold
- highway=elevator - elevators
- highway=steps - stairways
- conveying=yes/forward/backward/reversible - escalators
- indoormark=beacon - Bluetooth, NFC, or QR beacon for indoor positioning.
- indoor=yes - Indicates any osm object being inside a room, a building (or both) or a shelter.
- highway=corridor - Indoor ways, under some previous indoor tagging schemes, and as of 2019 a de facto standard. Another de facto standard for mapping interior routes is highway=footway+indoor=yes.

- Gomar1985 Indoor Proposal (IndoorOSM), Rendering of multi-level building maps in 2D (http://indoorosm.uni-hd.de/) and 3D, Indoor Routing/Navigation (http://indoorosm.uni-hd.de/)
- andreas.balzer Extension and aggregation of indoor proposals, see andreas.balzer, Rendering (own render engine in C#, yet to be published), Routing (modified OsmSharp)
- IndoorOSM from University of Heidelberg (same as gomar above)
here are also some abandoned and inactive proposals (oldest last):
Taging proposals more concerned with the 3D shape of the building
An Overpass API based renderer is available : OpenLevelUp
- The altitude value of GPS devices could be used to identify in which level of a parking multi storey a car is located.
Devices / Technologies
- High sensitivity GPS device
- Step counter
- Acceleration sensor
- Counting the number of wheel turns in cars / Tachometer
- Counting the number of floor tiles
- Audio footprint for rooms
- Laser rangefinder (e.g. Hector SLAM )
There is a discussion of challenges of adding indoor maps to OSM at Challenges for Indoor Maps.
