Seattle Map

About this site

This page is a tool to help improve the OpenStreetMap information for restaurants in Seattle. It shows where information is missing, and provides custom links to make filling in those gaps easier.

The OSM database stores locations primarily, but also keeps track of other useful information. This is kept in simple "key=value" tags, like "name=Starbucks" or "amenity=cafe".

Though businesses can be tagged many ways, this site lists these basics:

Example: Duke's Chowder House uses all of these keys. You can also click on one of the neighborhoods below to see how things can be tagged.
