Description

If you select "agricultural --> field" in the "simple" type selector, what actually goes into the data is "landuse=meadow" instead of "landuse=field".

It looks like agricultural tagging is a bit of a mess in general. Look up "landuse=field" and it points you to "landuse=farmland", which redirects to "landuse=farm".

Piecing together the wiki and taginfo usage, it looks like the following is current practice:

landuse=farm: generic term for farmy stuff landuse=farmyard: inhabited part of farm landuse=farmland: fields, paddocks, crops, pasture etc landuse=meadow: an area of grass. It's really not clear whether a paddock should be 'meadow' or 'farmland'. The images at landuse=farm show grassy fields tagged as 'farmland'.

The least controversial improvement I can think of is to change 'field' to 'meadow' so at least the user knows what tag they're getting. landuse=field would just add to the confusion I think.

Probably the clearest thing to do here is to rename the title to be "Agricultural -> meadow/paddock

I second the suggestion "to change the icon 'field' to 'meadow' so at least the user knows what tag they're getting".
