- See also Tag:bridge=aqueduct - only for the bridge part of an aqueduct
This tag is used for historic structures that transport water.
Modern pipelines are sometimes also called aqueducts, but this tag only deals with historic aqueducts. Unlike modern aqueducts they are still referred to as aqueducts even if there are only fragments left and they can't serve their original purpose.
Other properties might be (if you know them, tag them):
- historic:civilization=* for the culture that originally constructed the aqueduct
- start_date=* for the time when the aqueduct started to work
- bridge=aqueduct for parts of an aqueduct that are bridges (note that not all aqueducts are bridgelike structures, and not for all their way).
- ele=* if you know the elevation of distinct points of the aqueduct (level of the water / where once the water was) you can tag them like this
In some cases you might want to add
Aqueducts generally tend to be long. Nowadays many of them are not entirely preserved, but you will find fragments. It is suggested to use a relation (to be defined) to join all aqueduct parts that once were continuous into one object, even if now they don't form a continuity.
Possible Tagging Mistakes
- For current aqueducts, use man_made:pipeline=*.
