I don't know what to say to this. I didn't create the node, or indeed the whole rest area. Thailand is full of roadside shelters, usually quaint wooden constructions and I can see how anybody who wants to tag one would use shelter, as there is no other obvious choice, certainly not in JOSM. > I saw some tourism=lean_to when fixing a multipolygon issue in a natural tourism= is not an obvious choice, as most shelters have nothing to do with tourism. Also, a lean-to is something attached to another building, as the name suggests. In any case, amenity=shelter in the img file becomes "Unknown type (0x2b05, point)" in GPSMapEdit. Why in the map this becomes a camp ground is beyond me, but it's a bug. >> Incidentally, the area highway=services on the GPS map turns into a POI >> "Exit Unknown" with an interesting properties page.

The default I think you are correct here (Lambertus certainly does), although the POI should be something more intelligent. Kind regards, Peter.
