[Tagging] [Talk-us-nps] Feature Proposal - RFC - ranger_station

I'd update the definition to state facilities housing law enforcement and/or
visitor assistant services such as those commonly found in National Parks,
Forests, Wildlife Refuges, and State Parks. Tag should not be used on
facilities that do not include a law enforcement function such as
information kiosks or campground registration offices. In most cases, a
single structure will house many of these services.


Current text only references national parks.

I like your proposal. It would simplify mapping in parks with dedicated
ranger stations. Since there are 59 National Parks on our radar, each with a
least one ranger station, often more, the feature will be used throughout
the US. 


A Wikipedia search list over 6,000 results for ranger stations. The first
few pages appear to be sites that should be mapped.
