Marking house porch or patio areas

 1 Hello! I was wondering if there is any way (or need) to mark house porchs or patios, and if so, how is it done? Take as an example the red line in the image below (if it doesn't work, here's the image link: https://imgur.com/a/vm8RY ). asked 11 Jan '18, 15:18 Tea Koala 56●2●2●7 accept rate: 0% 87 people used building:part=porch according to taginfo (11 Jan '18, 16:44) escada A porch usually as a roof, your picture is, i think, a patio.

 0 I don't think patios are normally mapped. However, the small wall surrounding the patio can be mapped. In this example, I would draw a wall and enter a height value of about .5 (meters). Then, add a fence on top of the wall; min height = .5 and height 1. This way you'l have a wall of a half meter and a fence of a half meter on top for a total of one meter. After about 24 hours you can view the results in 3D here: http://demo.f4map.com/#camera.theta=0.9 answered 12 Jan '18, 12:07 chachafish 411●12●14●22 accept rate: 8% The effect would look somewhat similar to this: http://demo.f4map.com/#lat=39.7426911&lon=-105.0018368&zoom=21&camera.theta=64.473&camera.phi=-31.856 Here, the fence surrounds an elevated patio which is part of a church, but you get the idea ;) (12 Jan '18, 12:23) chachafish
