History

#1 Updated by Andreas Richter 3 months ago

Additional objects such as in Paragraph 6.6 in the Spec? I would not be very happy about that because the we have to find name for "everything" in the world (poles, street lamps, postboxes, hydrants, fences, phone boxes, ... not mention all building types!)

  • Assignee changed from Daniel Hausmann to Marius Dupuis

Could we learn from other projects or adapt to them? What is OSM doing?

#3 Updated by Andreas Richter 2 months ago

My question again is: What should be achieved with that? A possibility to describe the environment beyond the curb stone?

[In OSM] each feature is described with tags. A tag consists of a key and a value, e.g. highway=residential. In most cases tagging follows guidelines to describe defined features, but in general tagging is [optional] and therefore good and easy for crowd sourcing [but is still error-prone]. [...] In general there is mostly a defined way of tagging and adding additional data to the OSM database but practically there are still different ways of tagging that information. http://elib.dlr.de/102468/

Proposal:
- categories should be more generic, i.e. "building" instead of "school" etc.
