Sorry - should have added a bit more to that!

Where I had this before, I could separate the grounds into two polygons. However, this one I can’t. So I’m thinking that I tag the buildings as amenity=school, name=*, ref:edubase=* and then put a boundary polygon in which I tag … amenity=school? Should I also name it? The schools are Hamstel Junior School and Hamstel Infants School, together known as Hamstel Schools (which is what the single node currently has in OSM).

…and two schools, one site?

Hi All,

I have some questions about naming, and also the content of Edubase.


If someone could also suggest how to tag one school split across two sites, I would be very happy!

Many thanks

I'd also be interested in the one school / multiple sites issue.

These are becoming commoner as one school takes over another. The particular problem is that each site will have a name and the school itself will have a name. One example is the Nottingham Bluecoat School which has two sites, the original main site, and the Wollaton Park Campus site<http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/16487967> (a 'failing' secondary school taken over by Bluecoat, but now various functions are partitioned between the sites). Perhaps something like campus_name might work for now: I find the concatenation Bluecoat School - Wollaton Park Campus unwieldy and it's not easy to identify these multi-campus institutions.

(A side note, this school also hosts churches at both sites: slightly diffiicult in terms of locating the actual hall used for services & debatable whether rented locations should be specifically marked as place of worship, although in these cases both are signed outside the school).
