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


In Paris, it exists parking display (stands) for both bike and motorcycle. I'd like to add some of these display knowing that there are not only bicycle parking. What should i do ?

Thank you

There are both amenity=bicycle_parking and amenity=motorcycle_parking tags. I would either use two nodes in the same vicinity (one for each tag), or use one tag for the parking area and a node inside it for the other tag.

I saw this one which is marked for "cycles" on the road. https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/7598114854 The problem with creating 2 nodes is that they share the same capacity. It can contains 28 bicycles or 13 motorbikes (or an intermediate number if there is a mix of the two). I guess that 2 nodes would be more useful for people searching for a parking place, but we would lose the information about the capacity.
