I realise this thread was initially about buildings but when I’m using OsmAnd to find, for example, a public transport ticket machine at an airport, I want to see a photo of the machine so I know what I’m looking for not a frame of someone driving around a carpark. I’ve started using wikimedia_commons tag but OsmAnd doesn’t appear to support it. I submitted a bug report/feature request

The compass and gps inside mobile phones aren't good enough for this to work this easily. Directions of photos are often wrong. Maybe if we wait some 5-10 years for neural networks to understand the surroundings, and decide which photos show the subject.
