I wanted to map the agglomeration of my village and I am wondering again.
as well as a wiki search returns very vague information.
OSM-talk-fr sounds like associating agglomération and speed limit.
However, at least in Belgium, the definition of agglomération is very
as well as, although a link list seems yet to have to be invented, what

How is an agglomération tagged?
With residential ways?
Not every agglomeration part is residential and there are residences
When we're not facing the single road traversing a village, an
agglomeration looks much like an area.
It would indeed be a chore to tag every road of the agglomération of a
But that's an area of roads, more like gloves than mittens.
An agglomération is ≤ a village which is ≤ an old commune which is < a
commune = municipality.
That's an observation similar to what I've read on OSM-talk-fr.
But an agglomeration has nothing to do with administrative stuff.
Else, in Belgium, we would have agglomérations and agglomeraties
overlapping each other ;-)
Hence, it's not a subarea of a commune (municipality).
Is my reasoning correct that I should I make a relation containing the
But how do I tag it so that software recognize it as an agglomération as
Well, if I too consider just the speed limit, I see that Speed_limits
<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Speed_limits> applies to roads,
railways! and waterways!!! Not relations !!!!!
How do we tag agglomérations?
