Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


Six mounths ago I added "Cocott'arium de Neuville" - node 8180288803 and I am not able to find it using OSM search. It is a public facility.

Nominatim can not find it by name nor ID, and a reverse search returns a nearest structure but not the node itself.

Do I need to do something more?

Thank you.

Nominatim (searchbox on openstreetmap.org) doesn't import places with tag attraction=animal https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/projects/nominatim#tags Nominatim imports a lot of types of (named) places but not all. The main factor is if users use it for addresses or navigation.

It does import places tagged tourism=* but I can't tell if this place is also a tourist attraction. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:tourism%3Dattraction

You are right, it should have the tourism:attraction tag. I hesitated with the farmyard=poultry tag but the place also has educational and touristic puposes. Thank you for your help!
