# Hole in Outline in Relation

 0 Hi, I'm mapping a hospital close to me with quite a complex Shape. I've mapped all the different parts of it with building:part=yes and put it into a relation with the role=part. This relation (a) is of type=building. See: Relation a Then I created a second relation (b) with the outline of all the parts but gave it the role=outer. Additionally I created a line that represents the hole of that building and gave it the role=inner. Here: Relation b Eventually relation b becomes a part of relation a with the role=outline. But it does not seem to work 100%. What am I missing here? I don't wanna mess around any more and thought I'd just ask. Google didn't rely help or I haven't found my exact problem. (see my related post on reddit) Thank you. asked 18 Jun '21, 09:02 som-tam 16●1●1●2 accept rate: 0%

 3 When a building is mapped with a multipolygon, the tags for the building as a whole go only onto the multipolygon relation, not on the outer way. So you should remove the `building=hospital` tag from w955078388. Apart from that, the mapping looks correct to me. answered 18 Jun '21, 10:53 Tordanik 12.0k●15●106●147 accept rate: 35% That's it. Thank you. (18 Jun '21, 11:05) som-tam Also no need to use relations to map building parts, you can just rely on the geometrical relationships (18 Jun '21, 11:59) SK53 ♦
