I'd like to setup a data extract and a humanitarian style.
I know the JOSM HOT Presets,the Humanitarian style of osm.org and
http://tiles.openterrain.org/?humaniterrain from Stamen.
But none of them contain or show e.g. keys idp:camp_site or building:structure.
And the wiki page http://wiki.osm.org/wiki/Humanitarian_OSM_Tags
doesn't mention them neither.
Each HOT task seems to suggest different tags with mostly only
building=yes and highway=residential in common(?).
Can someone enlighten me about the common used HOT tags and where they
are documented?
