Evaluate opening times of restaurants, shops ... Show when searching or in LoPoints in the list view when is currently closed.
I saw this on the Maps.me app.
Unfortunately, not all POIs have an opening time. this means that not all of them are open without being marked Closed.
You would have to provide a notice to everyone without opening hours.
One ? or opening tents are missing or ...
Or a traffic light system green = open, orange = unsure or no information, red = closed
We are currently building database of POIs. Opening times are indeed quite high on priority list, but not comming in the first published version. It is true (as already said), that most shops, restaurants etc. do not provide opening hours in the publicly available OSM dataset - "unknown/orange" status will be the most common one if we chose the traffic light system suggested...
In some regions almost all opening times are available. Since then only a few have used an app to display POI with OSM. But that becomes more and more and then more times are added.
There are apps (Maps.me) where you can enter something like that when you look at it and it is transferred to OSM.
Would also be an idea to integrate something like that.
Great idea, so I can immediately exclude this POI from further information procurement
This is already integrated in online POI. When is the offline POI coming?
There is one more rather large task - use data from Wikipedia (localized articles), if subtle licencing issues allow us. Then comes the next step: generating offline (per country) databases from the "parent", constantly updated dataset.
Maybe a short update: there are opening hours included in the online POI's - available for both the app and web planner, where implementation of this feature is a matter of time. Showing e.g. opening state for restaurants in "list view" is possible. Large scale filtering of places based on current opening state seems tricky to me.
