Until yesterday OpenStreetBrowser completely ignored the "office" key. Now I created an "Offices" category (under "Services"), but I'm not sure about it's usefulness. It would be great to get some input from the community on this.

Many of the tags should actually be included in other categories and I'm not sure what to do with the rest. Maybe you (or others) have some thoughts on this?

Of course we can include the tags in the others and have an additional "office" category anyway.

This are the top 60 values (according to https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/office#values) of the 'office' key:

value suiting category
government Services -> Public
company ?
yes ?
estate_agent ?
insurance ? maybe Services -> Financial
lawyer ?
educational_institution Services -> Education
administrative Services -> Public
telecommunication Services -> Communication
ngo New category "Organisations"
association New category "Organisations"
it Services -> Telecommunication ?
accountant Services -> Financial
employment_agency ?
research Services -> Education
religion Culture and Religion -> Religion
architect ?
financial Services -> Financial
newspaper Services -> Communication ?
physician Services -> Health
therapist Services -> Health
travel_agent Services -> Tourism
political_party New category "Organisations"
advertising_agency ?
tax_advisor Services -> Financial
notary ?
energy_supplier ? maybe Infrastructure -> Energy -> Offices
foundation New category "Organisations"
logistics ?
water_utility ?
coworking ?
forestry
parish Culture and Religion -> Religion
consulting
medical Services -> Health
charity New category "Organisations"
construction_company Infrastructure -> Construction Sites ???
guide Services -> Tourism
property_management
vacant
tax Services -> Public and/or Services -> Financial
moving_company ?
quango New category "Organisations"
camping Services -> Tourism
publisher Services -> Communication
engineering
surveyor
university Services -> Education
cooperative Services -> Financial (not exactly sure what 'cooperative' means, but most used values have somtehing like "Saving and Credit Cooperative" in their name)
taxi Transport -> Public Transportation -> Amenities
real_estate
engineer Infrastructure -> Construction Sites ???
geodesist
transport
podologist Services -> Health
administration Services -> Public
union New category "Organisations"
security
solicitor
property_maintenance

I also have thoughts about "office=yes" - currently it shows "yes" as description for map features of this type. I would like to write "unknown" (resp. its translation) instead. What do you think about that?

So, these are the main questions now:

  • Shall there be an 'offices' category, as I created it?

  • I will include these offices values in the mentioned categories, but did I do any mistakes in the assignment?

  • What with the tags where I don't have a fitting category - shall I create categories for these and if yes, which, and under which parent category ...

Hello,

Wow I wont' comment yet all the sixty tags !

I think that first it would be better to begin with the tags from the wiki page >>> https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:office rather than Tag Info.

First we must classify the tags by theme on the model of the "shops" page.
This should be clearer.
And later also improve the wiki by structuring tags thematically like "shops"

How to tidy up?
Perhaps take the example of the category "tourism" divided into different sections
But I think there is also an interest in having a category "office" just as we have for "shops" and "craft".

The problem of the categories is that we do not see what is inside (what elements they contain) we must find explicit names.
As with "Electric power" ;-)

So here is my thematic classification according to the wiki page in English.

At the end you'll find some additional tags. Some are really "new" but I will use them soon.
Some did not exist yet and were really missing I think.

I hope this classification will help you to put the elements in the proper category in OpenStreetBrowser.

I hope there is no misunderstanding the above categories are just there to rank the tags. This is not the menu tree of OpenStreetBrowser ;-)
