I think I need to clarify the concept rather than solve the problem, so I put it on ‘General talk’ rather than ‘Help & Support’.
The key Tag:man_made=stupa is described as follows.
‘Do not tag man_made=stupa to a tiny stupa that resembles a sculpture (e.g. the 1-meter tall ones).’
What should I tag the stupa that looks like a sculpture of about 1~2 meter?
In the example of this key, why is the structure in ‘Qingtongxia, China’ included in the stupa? (It doesn’t look like it’s even 2 meters tall…)
There are many types of pagodas and stupas in Asia, generally divided by shape, but that is insufficient.
When it comes to East Asia, there are many different shapes.
I think that a clearer concept and distinction between pagodas and stupas is needed that all Asian cultures can agree on.
