It would be nice to have support for indoor maps. This would be especially useful for malls, like when you are visiting a new location and want to know where xyz store is. You could just whip out your phone and say OH! it's on the 2nd level!

Another useful possibility is routing, it could say that your destination is on x floor(when you get close to destination) when you've looked up xyz in the POI database, which would save you from visiting the info kiosk/mall map

Example: http://openlevelup.net/?lat=45.422085&lon=-75.639389&z=18&t=0&lvl=0&tcd=1&urd=0&bdg=0&pic=0&nte=0&ilv=0

It would be nice if next to an Object with different floor a pull-down or +- menu appear to allow setup a floor specific view. Buildings without a floor in the given number should appear in a lighten Gray.

I too would like to have this, especially for complicated buildings such as stations, airports, ... It would make navigation easier. A slider which appears when levels are in view would be great (perhaps this could be a plugin).

Also, underground floors (level=-1) should be less important when rendering. The underground bicycle parking here does shadow the platform stops (both on osm.org and in OsmAnd).

This is a must have feature. https://plan.epfl.ch did a pretty good job using OSM and indoor level.

Generally, OSMand should polish the citizen pedestrian experience (indoor mapping, walking, public transit, bike, uber). This is where most product fail and in my city (Geneva) 40% of the household do not own a car, it's a big market.

You can help and Tag side-walks with https://github.com/westnordost/StreetComplete that could support your problem.

Openlevelup and id indoor seem to converge towards the same tags. They both mainly follow these tagging rules: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Simple_Indoor_Tagging which as of now also seems the official osm stand (older propositions have been abandoned).

I think a simple level slider, together with stairs, room and corridor support while putting amenities on the right level would fix 95% of the use cases. Trying to add indoor routing will only add delays on this issue and should have a lower priority.

The slider would only pop up as of a certain zoom level (say below 1000 meter which would cover most airports) and only when there is at least one indoor element defined within the view.
