Hi I am trying to get a comprehensive list of place type categories. I think we are missing categories and have an incoherent method to find. Looking for something with a brief explanation of the category types, name and number in excel form.

This is what we have at the moment.

Openroute Parent        Sub catergory

Maybe it would help if you could explain a bit more what problem you are trying to solve? "finding out what things are tagged as in OSM" clearly isn't an end goal; there's presumably some reason why you're asking the question.

thanks, we are looking at building an app to show nearby points of interest on a map. We are looking to filter off particular categories. Just want to make sure we have a comprehensive list to filter from.

Also, we wanted to check, do place names come with a numbering or unique identifier. Not that it necessarily matters, we just we wanted to be sure we had a complete view of the data structure.

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/ contains documentations of many popular tags, see for example https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Features

You'll also want to have a look at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Elements .

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nominatim/Special_Phrases/EN is also a good start. It contains a description of each type and is in a machine-readable format.

(16 Jul '18, 08:04) scai ♦

OSM allows freeform tags, so there is no "complete" list - people can just enter what they like. That said, the wiki "Map Features" page (as suggested by Mateusz) will cover most of what you're interested in. If you want to see how many of a particular item there are just use taginfo to search for whatever it is you're interested in.
