How should I tag a surf shop/cafe

Posted by ConsEbt on 24 February 2018 in English (English)

Hi everybody, I’m looking for suggestions to improve the tagging of the Surf House Dubai which I have

Now I did add some tags to the surf shop as suggested by the wiki however I’d like to have some comments.

  • how should sale and renting of surf, wake and stand up paddling boards be tagged?
  • how to add the surf school?
  • how to add the surf shop - they sell board, parts, tee shirts, shorts, sunglasses, sunscreen etc.
  • how to add Yoga classes

What are your suggestions?

multiple buildings at a Gutshof

Posted by ConsEbt on 27 June 2013 in English (English)

Hi all, made my first few edits with id. I like it.

Now I have added multiple buildings to a ‘Gutshof’. There are multiple farm buildings that nowadays are being used as hotel rooms and suites as well as a farm shop, restaurant and administration.

How can I put all these buildings together so that they are shows as ‘this is the hotel’ and not tag every building again?

OSM ist mal wieder am schnellsten

Posted by ConsEbt on 20 June 2011 in German (Deutsch)

kurze Notiz an die Gemeinschaft, dass OSM mal wieder die schnellsten sind.
ALDI Süd Filiale wurde kürzlich erweitert und ich hab das mal umgesetzt (geschätzt). Dabei ist eine Parkreihe weggefallen.

Gibt es einen Tag für Discounter oder ist das ein 'deutscher' Begriff?

Wie tagge ich die Firma richtig?

Posted by ConsEbt on 20 June 2011 in German (Deutsch)

Hallo zusammen,
schon mehrfach daran vorbei gelaufen habe ich heute einige Tags für die Firma hinzugefügt.

Allerdings weiß ich einige Dinge nicht:
- woher die weitere Hausnummer kommt? Laut Firmenhomepage 25
- Wie ich zeige, dass alle drei Gebäude zusammen gehören
- Gibt es einen Tag für die Branche oder die Art der Firma? unter habe ich nichts gefunden

Danke schon mal.

Rathaus Glienicke

Posted by ConsEbt on 31 May 2011 in German (Deutsch)

Im Changeset habe ich das Rathaus mit Namen und Adresse versehen.
Quelle war die offizielle Seite:

Im Rathaus gibt es auch öffentliche Toiletten - offen während das Rathaus geöffnet ist. Aber wie kann man das eingeben?

Weiß hier jemand mehr?

Maping of Seychelles/Victoria with BING images

Posted by ConsEbt on 4 April 2011 in English (English)

Hi mappers and trackers,

to get a better map in a Safety-Map [1] of the Seychelles main island I've started to do some image tracking in Potlatch 2 using the BING [2] imagery.

It's my first real activity on OSM so any comments are welcome and appreciated!

See my edits

Have fun mapping!

PS: I've came across the Safety-Maps via [3], thanks guys for the good summary!
