como puedo poner nombre a las plazas sin hacer un poligono? con un solo nodo

In English (rough translation):

How can I give a name to a place/square without making a polygon? Using just a single node.

Es posible hacerlo: Haz un solo nodo, y anótala con "area=yes, name=Plaza de los cuatro vientos".

Pero no es recomendado. La manera oficial en Openstreetmap es de poner un poligono, como describido en .

Porque no quieres hacer un poligono? No es necesario que sea exacto: Si no tienes las dimensiones exactas, es bastante trazar la plaza (siguiendo las fotografías orbitales). Para notar que el poligono no ex exacto, puedes poner "fixme=resurvey" ( ).

Yes, it is possible: Make a single node, and tag it as "area=yes, name=Plaza de los cuatro vientos".

However, this is not recommended. The official way to do it in Openstreetmap is to make a polygon, as described in .

Why don't you want to make a polygon? It does not need to be precise: If you don't know the exact dimensions, just trace the square (following the satellite imagery). To note that it is not exact, you can tag it as "fixme=resurvey" ( ).

@fercema1: It takes some time (sometimes even some weeks) for your changes to appear on our maps. Also not every tag is rendered by every map - there are speciality maps. /// (translated with google translate:) Se necesita algún tiempo (a veces incluso varias semanas) para que sus cambios aparezcan en nuestros mapas. Además, no todas las etiquetas se representa por cada mapa - hay mapas de la especialidad. See/ver: como-guardar-los-cambios-definitivamente.
