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.
