Are you asking about creating your own map here, and if so, what sort of map is it and how are you creating it?

OSM is mainly a geo-data repository, if and how the data is displayed is always a decision made by the creator(s) of the map style. Naturally this is further limited by the practicalities, by what the software tool chain actually supports.

The repository for the "standard" map style (the rules that transfer OSM data in to a visible map) is located here https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto The style is fairly complex and it is not straightforward to determine exactly which tags get used when.

(just in case it wasn't obvious) there are other map styles available on the OSM web site too; for example the "Humanitarian" style is described here:
