Re: HDM presets and tagging revised and for review

Will Skora

Great work on this fellow hotties.

One question: landuse=cemetery and amenity=grave_yard are both used quite a bit to bury the deceased.

Not included in the preset is landuse=cemetery - which is used 139.000 times according to taginfo - http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/search?q=landuse%3Dcemetery

Included in the preset is amenity=grave_yard - http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dgrave_yard 149.000 times. http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/?key=amenity&value=grave_yard

There's a distinction between the two according to the wiki - graveyards are next to places of worship.
so, if you include one in HDM, I'd assume you want to include the other.

As I thought about it, I looked into its usage and found most of the uses of amenity=grave_yard are within the USA: 121,000 of 149,000. (a result of a large GNIS import in the USA in 2008-09 which added features as amenity=grave_yard. Going by the wiki definition and practice, an unknown amount of these imported objects have been changed to landuse=cemetery). As for landuse=cemetery ~16,000 of 139,000 uses are within the USA.

In the end, I'd probably keep both for HDM, although it could be considered whether that distinction is important enough to use 2 different tags.

Regards,
Will.

I'd also keep them both. .. In the context of Haiti (where this dev work was done) you would/should also tag objects as graveyards that are just small burial places. IMO, that is.

A graveyard is a burial place associated to and near a church, maybe cemetery is the better tag? You can also tag single tombs with the tag tomb=* and historic=tomb where applicable

cheers,
