Hi, should parking aisles be drawn in Underground parking and multi-storey car parks? (e.g. Tiefgarage Schloßstraße)

And is it possible to connect a underground and a multi-storey to one car park? I've treid to do this with a relation (e.g. Forum City Mülheim). Or should I map them seperadly, like this two: Tiefgarage Synagogenplatz and Tiefgarage Schloßstraße ?

In principle the methods described for pedestrian navigation within buildings could be used for the parking aisles in multi-storey buildings.

In practice these are generally very difficult for hobby mappers to do with any degree of accuracy and most mappers will terminate the service roads at an amenity=parking_entrance.

Exposed "bridges" looping outside of the main parking building can be tagged with the usual layer tags.

Make sure you enter appropriate layertags and possibly even level tags and also map the ramps or stairs connecting the levels.

Hi MSmolarz, have a look here, there is one problem. most of the aisles will be on the same spot on each floor. A multistage will be difficult to manage, manipulate the layout by moving it in any direction so that no way will cover another one. Surveying a multistage will be hard to do, your GPS can’t cope with layers of concrete, your only able to draw a realistic image by using the original building drawings.
