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?

Location: Hohen Niendorf, Neubukow-Salzhaff, Rostock, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany

Hello ConsEbt,

The tags you have on the area need to be removed and put on the Multipolygon Relation leaving the area untagged. This will give the desired effect, unfortunately I don’t use iD editor so can’t help there. It’s a very simple automatic job in the JOSM editor and I can do it for you if you wish. Have a go, and post/let me know, if you need more help.

Regards Bernard

@BCNorwich I can’t see the need for a moltipolygon relation. I have sent ConEbt a separate mail with other suggestions. If he takes you up on the help ask him to send you a copy of my humble opinion.

Bernard has given a big hidden hint: Graduate to JOSM asap for easier editing. The learning curve is much higher but it is worth it and it is more fun. Ask advice from Bernard, I am sure he will assist you if you need it. I would too!
