Toilet tagging issues

Cj Malone-2
Hello everyone

It seems to me that there are some issues with toilet tagging, that
seems to have come from wheelmap.org. Not to criticise wheelmap.org,
they are a great part of the OSM ecosystem, using data and contributing
valuable data.

The issue is when somebody flags an object as having a wheelchair
accessible toilet the object gets tagged with 'toilets:wheelchair=yes'
(or no), but the parent tag 'toilets' never gets set.

When 'toilets:wheelchair=no' is set we can't infer whether there are
toilets but not accessible ones, or no toilets at all.

However I believe 'toilets:wheelchair=yes' should always come with,
'toilets=yes'. How would everyone feel about a large edit to amend
this?

Hi Cj

I'm doubtful. There could be two different buildings next to each
other, for example, one with accessble toilets designated for
wheelchair only (tagged toilets:wheelchair=yes) and one with
inaccessible toilets (tagged toilets:wheelchair=no and toilets=yes).
In that case, you wouldn't want to make your suggested edit, would
you?

Best
Dan

Well, if you were micro mapping that level of detail, I'd assume you
were using amenity=toilets, not toilets=yes. toilets=yes (and so
toilets:wheelchair=yes) should be on another POI, it's not a POI it's
self.

Wheelmap are an honourable organisation but can be a bit simplistic.  I
would have thought that toilets:wheelchair=no should add toitlets=yes

Of would you prefer a manual (site) check Dan.

Might wheelmap developers be open to a change to theapp.

The issue with that is toilets:wheelchair=no is also added when there
is no toilets at all. Wheelmap doesn't currently register a difference
between no toilets, and toilets but not accessible to wheelchairs.

I've reported it before [1] but they seem to have not gotten around to
it.
