Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


The question is fairly self-explanatory...I can't find a building=porch or material=screen or the like. What is the common way to do this?

According to Taginfo the tag 'building=porch' has been used 13 times already so it looks like other users have gone down the same track as you. Not sure what to do about the material. There is a tag building:material=* http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:building:material which seems to relate to rendering on 3D maps. Perhaps someone else could advise whether it is ok to use this tag with the value 'screen'
