> I'm trying to tag a whole bunch of side-of-road parking, and I have two questions.
> First, what is the correct way to tag marked parking spaces? There is parking:lane:*=marked which would seem to apply, but then it isn't clear how to indicate the direction (parallel vs. diagonal vs. perpendicular)?
Depending on their direction? Can you link photos of case that is unclear for you?

seems clear to me

>  It's also not entirely clear when I am or am not supposed to use 'marked'...
"There are only some parking spaces available that are individually marked."
so it seems to be used for example in case where there is a single parking space,
20m of no parking then other parking space (possibly in other direction),
tree, parking space, 10m of no parking, 3 parking spaces and so on.

Splitting this on every change would be ridiculous, therefore "marked"
can be used.

> Second, at what point does "on street parking" become a parking lot?
> There are examples of the first *all* over Quantico (at least the "downtown" part). For examples of the second, consider:

> I am particularly struggling to decide what to do at places such as:
>  38.52057/-77.29185
>  38.52181/-77.29611
>  38.52125/-77.29711
Can you link some photos?
