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


Is there any way for tagging several shops in one buildings. I'm thinking about having one haircut in the first floor, a lawyer and an smith in the second floor, etc.

Is there any way for specifying the floor and the door (at the floor) in shop=[something]?

Something like

shop=haircut floor=1 door=2

shop=smith floor=2 door=1


How can it displays in OSM? Do we need OSM-3d for displaying?

In resume, is there any way for specifying having multiple shops in a single place (building in my case)?

Thanks in advance and sorry for my uglish english ;-)

For tagging which floor something is on, the most popular tag is level. eg level=3.

For what door, that is probably best with some sort of addr tag. Though I'm not sure if there is a specific tag for that. There has some discussion of proposed tags for this on the Tagging mailing list today.

As with mapping a Multi-function facility there is no hard and fast rule that will work for every combination of objects. Mapper discretion is required. For a shopping mall it is possible to add the building with the common elements of the objects; name of the mall, opening hours if consolidated. Then add nodes for each business as required.
