#11433 closed enhancement (fixed)

Better support for cuisine=*

Reported by: mdk Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone: 15.05
Component: Internal preset Version: latest
Keywords: cuisine Cc:


I want to map the "Texas Steakhaouse", but the JOSM preset has no suitable value. So I looked into the Wiki page, which lists about 90 values and manually use cuisine=steak_house.

I wonder why these values are not in the preset (and validator complain about it), so I looked into taginfo. The cuisine tag is used 347272 times with 10628 (!) different values. And I saw several, cases where clearly are typos:

steak_house 2400
steakhouse 36
Steakhouse 23
Steak_House 12
steak-house 3
Steak_house 3
steak␣house 3
steack_house 2
Steak␣House 1
Steakhaus 1

And some similar values:

steak 359
Steak 27
steak_grill 12
steaks 12
Steaks 1
ステーキ␣(Steak) 1
Beefsteak_house 1
steack 1
Steakhouse_chain 1

Many off the different values are combinations like (as an example I just pick out the combination with seafood):

steak;seafood 15
seafood;steak 5
steak_house;seafood 3
steak_house;fish 3
Steak_and_Seafood 3
seafood;steak_house 2
seafood␣and␣steaks 2
seafood,␣steak 2
seafood;steaks 2
fisch,steaks 1
seafood,steak_house 1
seafood,steak 1
Seafood_and_Steaks 1
steak,␣seafood 1
steak_&_seafood 1
Steak,_Fisch_und_mehr 1
Steak,_sea_food 1
Steak_&_Fish 1
Steaks_and_Seafood 1
steak;fish 1
steak;␣sea_food; 1
seafood,_steak 1
Steak,_Seafood 1
steak;seafood; 1
fish;steaks 1
steak;␣seafood 1
steaks_and_seafood 1
seafood,␣steack_house 1
Steaks,_Seafood 1

What can we do to reduce this mess?

  • Should we add more values to the preset? Nice if the preset and the wiki would be in sync.
  • Should we mark deprecated values more clearly in the wiki (like fish or sub)?
  • Should we warn about deprecated values and offer a fix (like replacing cuisine=fish with cuisine=seafood)
  • Should we have some pretty type mechanism like for opening_hours?

If we have a value which is not in the preset and we do operations like:

  • convert to lower case
  • replace ' ' or '-' with '_'
  • replace ',' with ';'
  • remove trailing or leading special chars like ' ', ';', '_'

and we now find the result in the preset, warn and offer a fix to replace the value.

Additionally we could also have a test where we remove the '_' from the preset value. If we find a match in this case like "steakhouse" would match "steak_house" without '_', we can warn and offer a fix to replace cuisine=steakhouse with cuisine=steak_house.

We should split combined values (separated by ';') and check each part separatly. And perhas these parts should be sorted alphabetically (prefer cuisine=seafood;steak instead of cuisine=steak;seafood).

Perhaps this could be a generic validation rule for many tags with a given list of values plus user defined values.

fix #11433 - add steak_house as cuisine

comment:2 Changed 4 years ago by stoecker

Milestone: 15.05

Added steak_house.

For the typos in database: You can load them in JOSM, verify them and fix entries. Please don't do automatic fixes, as usually bad values go together with other errors.

Why is the "house" is the name needed? Is that the common name of the cuisine (not the restaurant facility) in the US?
