Hi all,

We are fast approaching the next quarterly project (Jan-Feb-Mar 2018). We
have some great ideas from past requests but many of these require better
weather. Given the Shell petrol station import has highlighted a lot of
inconsistency in the way we map, the next quarterly project shall be petrol
stations.

There are circa 8000 in total and the balance between what can be achieved
via aerial imagery and ground surveys is good (i.e. you can get the
boundaries and building shapes from imagery).

Here is the wiki:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag%3Aamenity%3Dfuel

The first task in my mind is to be clear about our tagging. The wiki
mentions operator, brand and tennant as tags. How should we be using these?
What about the "name" tag?

Thanks,
*Rob*
