Mapping rules

in case of a dispute, I will use following mapping rules:

30-Zone "highway"="residential" "maxspeed"="30" "source:maxspeed"="DE:zone30"
Hausdurchfahrt "tunnel=building_passage"
parkplatz Scheibe "parking:condition=disk" "stay:120" "condition:time_interval=Mo-Fr 09:00-13:00,15:00-19:00; Sa 08:00-13:00" THIS IS NOW QUESTIONABLE
parkplatz Schein "parking:condition=ticket" "fee=interval" "condition:time_interval=Mo-Fr 09:00-13:00,15:00-18:00"
Einbahn/Rad frei "oneway=yes" "oneway:bicycle=no" "cycleway=opposite"
Kirche "name=St. Remigius" "building=church" "amenity=place_of_worship" "religion=christian" "denomination=roman_catholic" "service_times=Su 11:00; Tu 9:00; We 15:00" "start_date=1450" "website="
Denkmalschutzliste "historic=heritage" "heritage=8" "heritage:ref=371" "heritage:operator=UntereDenkmalbehörde" "heritage:website="
Bücher Tausch Kiste/Schrank/ "amenity=public_bookcase" "note=old red phone booth"
Neubau, nicht im Kataster fixme=Neubau Grundriss
fast_food/restaurant pay before eating=fast_food pay after eating=restaurant
kein sinnvoller Name (Schulhof, etc.) "noname=yes"
Fischtreppe fixme=Change to 'fish_pass' when tag rendered.
Doppelhaushälfte building=semidetached_house (already used around Cologne)
Carport building=carport (wird vom Kreis extra unterschieden)
xx xx

Landuse / Natural / Landcover

WORST CASE, found in Wikipedia .. do not do this!

Area Tag Remark
Dauergrünland landuse=meadow
Ackerbauflächen landuse=farmland
Baumplantage/Weinberg landuse=orchard/vineyard
Grünflaeche in der Stadt landuse=grass zumindest einmal im Jahr gemäht
Grünflaeche in der Stadt natural=scrub verbuscht, nie gemäht
xx xx

recreation_ground gibt es bei uns nicht! Damit sind keine Hundewiesen gemeint!! Bei uns wird das entweder ein Park oder ein pitch. Bestenfalls als Aussenfläche um Sportstätten (Hoher Busch).

my personal approach:

  • connect all landuse polygons
  • if possible, remove multi-polygon relations on landuse (split on kataster boundaries)
  • split landuse on highways:
    • always on secondary and tertiary
    • possible fill in landuse=highway (proposal was stopped by trolls, it's not optimal, but since landuse=railways is accepted, the optimal landuse=transportation can't be reached)
    • split on railway, fill in landuse=railway
  • connect landuse with areas tagged with natural=wood,scrub,etc.
  • maybe also landcover?

check User:Imagic/landcover for a new classification

12-Aug-2014: the Kreis Viersen is "monument-free", see DE:CheckTheMonuments, beside the 2 real ones I know, Bismarkturm & Kreiskriegerdenkmal.

All the 'monuments' I found were wind/watermills, memorials, sculptures and one pillbox. Maybe we can find some more real monuments!
