For some time now I have been working on taglocator. A tool that helps in locating where tags are to be found on the map. It is not unique, you can get the same results with many other tools (like overpass-turbo), but the difference (as usual) is in the user interface. Here is a screenshot: Start up the tool at: http://mijndev.openstreetmap.nl/~marczoutendijk/taglocator/osmtags.html
- zoom in to your location (or use the search box)
- select something from the top left menu (Shop in the screenshot above)
- select something from the list on the right (Books/Stationary in the screenshot)
Watch for the small circles to popup on the screen and click within one of those circles to get more info on the node you selected. You can edit with a number of (preselected) OSM editors. When a website or wikipedia link is available, you can choose that as well. Taglocator is still in development and your comments (or wishes) are welcome.
My main reason for creating this tool is to find out what items still had to be put on the map. A lot I can tell you! The best way you can put it to use is to explore the area around you and fill in the gaps on the map. We should be able to beat Google!
Currently taglocator is at version bèta 0.6b+ with many improvements.
There is also a wikipage on Taglocator: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Taglocator
Edit (20150809): Taglocator (1.08) changed its name and is now available under it’s own domain name as http://openpoimap.org
