There is this walkway at a hospital in Ghent, Belgium. How would you guys tag it (currently only mapped as a simple path, so routing engines don't realize that it's floating and can't be accessed from outside) hospital walkway

I was thinking

min: building:level 1
max: building:level 2

but not sure if there are better/other tags...

Cheers, Thibault

Does that have 2 levels or just one? (Can't quite tell from the image.)

I might also add bridge=yes and layer=1

The established tags for levels (from Simple 3D Buildings) would be

building:levels = 2
building:min_level = 1

This goes along with building=yes, or building:part=yes if you consider it part of another building. I'm not aware of an established building value for these.

Add layer = 1 to establish the vertical stacking with the features below.

There's no obvious tag for enclosed air-conditioned "indoor" walkways (like do we consider there's an indoor walkway within the bridge structure). I must admit I "abuse" bridge=covered with appropriate layer=*, adding air_conditoning=yes. Connect it to the buildings with entrance=*, adding the appropriate level=.
