There is almost 4k of artworks drew as lines:
https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/tourism=artwork#overview

Those are mostly graffities and murals painted on the walls. Some examples below:
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/464155454
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/504508965
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/370396569

If we render artworks drew as nodes and areas, we should render tourism=artwork ways too, I think.
For me, the best option would be to render an artwork icon in the middle of these lines.

For info: of the ~4k ways with tourism=artwork more than 3k are polygons which are already rendered with an icon.

The question to ask is probably more general: in what cases should we also allow linear ways in amenity-points?

@imagico My lists of:

linear amenities which should be rendered as icons:

  • tourism=artwork
  • amenity=clock
  • amenity=recycling

linear amenities, which should be rendered as icons or icons with lines:

  • amenity=bicycle_parking (grey line with current icon in the middle)
  • amenity=bicycle_rental (grey line with current icon in the middle)

linear amenities, which should be rendered as lines:

  • amenity=bench (brown line, #1890)

other:

  • leisure=pitch + sport=soccer (there are often wild pitches without borders on the grass, mapped as a line between goal gates - it could be rendered as 2 goal gates on the ends of this line)

None of these has documentation on the wiki how to map as linear ways, for most of them the documentation says not to use on linear ways.

Rendering as lines is usually out of the questions because of possible confusion with other line features (highways, railways, barriers etc.).

Due to OSM Wiki, it's true just for clocks , bicycle rentals and recycling, so it's not "most of them", but we can forget about these 3. All the rest (artworks, bicycle parkings, benches and pitches ) could be mapped as linear ways, so we should discuss them, at least as icons.

If a polygon of an amenity has (also) an icon I propose to render only the icon on lines. Least possible confusion, most gain of shown data.

Due to @imagico comment, I propose to discuss icon-rendering of these elements (mapped as linear ways):

  • tourism=artwork
  • amenity=bicycle_parking
  • amenity=bench
  • leisure=pitch

I guess at least tourism=artwork could be added, because wiki treats such nodes, ways and areas the same. I haven't checked other tags.

  • tourism=artwork may be a mural, mapped as a line attached to a building outline

  • amenity=bicycle_parking/ rental are sometimes mapped as linear ways, because they are often a line of standing bikes

  • amenity=bench - there are examples of long benches which is easier to map as lines than nodes

Do you know how to get this kind of statistics? I see nothing on taginfo and hopefully somebody already shared tool to do that.

For tourism=artwork tagging on lines makes sense and rendering them makes sense. For others I have some doubts but for start I want to check how these are tagged.
