> how do you recomend to tag a fitness studio inside of a sports centre
Is a "fitness studio" a sports hall? I thought a sports hall was a
building with a large court (leisure=pitch) instead or several courts,
and probably with toilets and changing rooms. Isn't a fitness centre
tagged leisure=fitness_centre instead?
To tag a covered court ("pitch" in OSM) one can use leisure=pitch +
covered=yes, perhaps? I think this is what I've done for basketball
courts and covered futsal fields here, though I might have just mapped
the whole area as leisure=sports_centre and not mapped the court/pitch
To me it seems redundant to tag leisure=sports_hall on buildings
inside of a leisure=sports_center, like tagging
"healthcare=hospital_ward" on each building inside of a large medical
center which is already mapped as amenity=hospital. The standard
tagging that is building=hospital, like building=school inside of an
While in theory building=school could be reused as a hotel/pub (See
https://www.mcmenamins.com/kennedy-school) in that case the building
will be inside of a tourism=hotel polygon so it's clear that it's no
longer a school.
