    1. grain/fodder storage structure = grain silo, permanent covered storage pit, granary, etc.
    2. equipment shed
    3. hay/straw barn
    4. mixed use farm building = farm building used for a mixture of grain/fodder/straw/hay/equipment.
  2. Scale(of building footprint)

    2. large > 30m

Key

Return
  1. grain/fodder storage structure etc.
    1. small < 30m = fb01
    2. large > 30m = fb02
  2. equipment shed
    1. small < 30m = fb03
    2. large > 30m = fb04
  3. hay/straw barn
    1. small < 30m = fb05
    2. large > 30m = fb06
  4. mixed use farm building
    1. small < 30m = fb07
    2. large > 30m = fb08

Dominance Rules

Return
  1. IF TYPE with greater area is very similar or otherwise unclear:
    1. Choose mixed use farm building over all other TYPES.
  2. IF it is unclear whether the size of a parking lot that adjoins or encircles other builtup/building features is large enough to map and classify as a separate feature (area is similar to 30m, 1000m2), then map and classify it as a separate os08 parking lot feature.
