Dear Janko Mihelic
We found building:year in one wiki and the start_date is recommended for
historical mapping. Our values are not the start_date but probably

wiki on beds states its for hotel, but so is the rooms. we shall switch to
beds, roof:material, roof:shape.

Dear fly
We use operator in the buildings which are inside the facility boundary. we
have followed the school, hospitals tagging wiki.

we have not used social_facility as amenity and building covers them all.

we will post a wiki after this, that is why we want our work to be

Dear Tobias Knerr
We fully agree with using lower case and singular forms of tags.
OT means operation theater, we will use the full form
we will change building:condition to physical_condition

we would like suggestion on using lower case in building:structure. lower
case confirms to standard but title case is easier o read.

For example, tags do not exist for building structure type, column size, seismic resistance, bays. We have developed our own tagging guidelines for these and other data. We would like these tags to be reviewed by the community so that we can post it in the wiki. This will help to maintain an international standard while tagging these data.
