#8185 closed enhancement (fixed)

add relation type building

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone: 17.04
Component: Internal preset Version: latest
Keywords: 3d building relation Cc: Klumbumbus



As described in the simple 3D Buildings tagging scheme (, buildings will contain/include a relation of type=building.
Please include this relation type into the JOSM validation. Yet it always hit a "relation type unknown" error.
Thank You

The validator relies on presets. According to, type=building is used rather rarely for now. Therefore, I wouldn't add this preset right now and await a more frequent usage. However, the ​"3D Simple Buildings" preset could be adapted (cf. bottom of trunk/data/defaultpresets.xml for some examples).

Two years later, type=building is used 6265 times.

While implementing the full preset is one thing, it would already help if the validator could stop complaining about it.

I had cases that well-meaning folks retagged building relations into multipolygons, and the next guy deleted it completely because obviously multipolygon was nonsense.

At least a proper wiki page to link to would be nice.

Good point. I had already pointed more clearly to the current use on the old proposal page,
but I'll take action and separate the current use from the proposal tomorrow.

Replying to Polarbear-j:


Thanks, some examples (an easy + a complex one) would be useful.

Any news about this, please?
At least kendzi3d (the plugin) and osmwiki:F4_Map seem to properly support it.

the relation is now used more than 10.000 times so I think we can include it in core.
