Reply with 2 POI tags you want added to the map app - **NOW WITH POLL**


#1

Hi Cartographers,
Let’s make a list of POI tags to be added to the map. Every Sunday, I’ll publish a list of tags from most to least popular. The FOAM team can use this for the next update.
Cheers,

Scroll all the way down for the Poll


New Tags: Residential, Education, Transportation, Religion, Government – FOAM Map
#2

Transportation and Education please!


#3

Government Administration and Post Office please and thank you. If Governmental is more appropriate for both then Governmental… I personally don’t think of the government when thinking about the Post Office (but yes; I agree they are intimately connected).


#4

Government and Post Office. I think a separation is appropriate here


#5

Any tags for Hotels?


#6

Transport and education, I agree.


#7

what about ? scenic view and architecture


#8

Natural attraction, e.g. trail head, waterfall, etc.

Historic place, e.g. points on the national register of historic places


#9

Perhaps the list that OpenStreetMap has been expanding for years can be of inspiration. Note that the k/v combinations can seem a bit odd…Just try and look past that, and a pretty comprehensive list emerges.

All links below are subheadings on this huge list of all OSM feature types.


#10

Social/Community - I understand the existing “Nightlife” tag to apply to a narrow subset of this suggestion.

Brewery

I really like @mvexel 's idea of using OSM for inspiration. It’s worth noting that OSM is quite road/transportation focused and early FOAM use cases are likely to be more destination centric.


#11

I agree, “Education” is an important tag.


#12

I agree. “Accomodation” would be great.


#13

I would also like to see “Maritime” or “Nautical” as a tag so ferry docks, ports, etc can be easily searched. But the “maritime” tag excludes lakes, rivers and waterfalls. Should there be a tag that encompasses all bodies of water or is it better that they are seperate?


#14

This is cool @cryptozen, perhaps we could use the “Like” button to vote for which does the community want added!


#15

Hotels/Accommodations, Public Transportation


#16

Accomodation - definitely useful
Store / Market - of any kind, just to wrap up all the kinds of points that could be in the future the locations where other token transactions use to let a smart contract run… This can open a wide field of applications and dApps
Transportation / vehicle sharing: this also can be huge: as sharing economy go decentralized having a map with the locations where you can pick up a bike/motorcycle/car/boat or whatever can be extremely useful to develop more contracts on this specific matter!


#17

What would really get people to use the like button would be if the top level responses organized by like count, a la redit


#18

I actually looked for a discourse poll feature but could not find one. In keeping with the spirit of decentralization and curated lists, the community should vote on this. In the absence of voting, I will manually curate the community’s suggestions. Let me know if you have other ideas Daryl


#19

Agreed. I like all 3. Thanks for input ntotao


#20

Thanks. thinking of ways to take advantage of the like button
