Hi everyone,

While mapping playground, I always try to add the features of the playground, such as the slides, swings and springies. These features are described in the wiki.

Does a map exist which visualizes those neatly? The standard maps don't... Perhaps something like the surveillance maps which visualize the surveillance cameras?

Firstly - it's great to add more detail!

Unfortunately, this isn't an answer to the question, but it'd be useful if you linked to an example so that people can see what tags are being used here. I maintain a map style that shows a bit more detail at higher zooms that the "standard" style, so it'd be useful to me in particular. I only render tiles for GB and Ireland though, so I suspect it's not going to be directly useful to you.

Hi! A list of all the playground equipment can be found on the wiki

And no, I'm from Belgium, so I can't use your map tiles. But I'd like to take a look anyway :p

I'm interested in the same topic. An overlay map would be great.

You probably can achieve what you want with umap (for example and a couple of custom icons (you will need to retrieve the data with an overpass API query see for a simple interface for building the queries)..
