[mkgmap-dev] "shop=no"

From Bernhard Hiller bhil at gmx.de on Fri Aug 18 17:53:00 BST 2017

Hi Gerd,

that's a good point. Let's take a look at the numbers:
vacant 10542
no 2732
disused 2389
abandoned 9
vacancy 9
Vacant 7
unused 5
none 4
disused:supermarket 2
Vacant Store 1
vacant;survey 1
vacat 1
computer;vacant 1
vacant;chemist 1
abandone 1
disused:shop=car 1
disused:bicycle 1
disused:clothes 1
disused:garden_centre 1
disued (backery) 1
disused:hairdresser 1
disused:pet,garden_centre 1
disused:butcher 1
disused:mall 1
disuded 1

I am not so sure what do with "vacant" as this might indicate a 
temporary state of that shop, but depending on the place it might never 
become a shop again.
Also with the "disused" cases, the shops could be in operation a short 
time later again, or never.
At least, these cases are more important (vacant) or equally important 
(disused) as shop=no.

By the way, I run an overpass query for shop=no in the Frankfurt/Germany 
region: the "shop=no" tags are typically used here at fuel stations... 
Same holds true for Berlin or Prague. In England, I stumbled upon node 
node https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/412490731 which combines shop=no 
with amenity=icecream. There are some rare occasions where a building 
was mapped with shops in all adjacent building which received a shop=no.

More input from other mappers / map makers is welcome.
