Tagging ideas for California
- 65 MPH is the max speed limit on highways unless otherwise posted
- Business areas/residential areas: 25 MPH unless otherwise posted
- Otherwise, the max speed limit is 55 MPH unless otherwise posted
Since there are multiple governments involved in building/maintaining roads, and there doesn't seem to be usable correlation of what they call a road to the types used in OpenStreetMap, road types need to be done by judgment. The following guidelines are for urban areas, and are loosened for rural and tightened in dense urban to avoid making everything secondary or larger in an area.
If something has a state or federal highway number, it gets classified higher if there is a question.
EV charging stations
There are many electric-vehicle charging stations in the state. The accepted way to tag these is with the combination of amenity=fuel and fuel=electricity, even where there is no real fuel available at a station.
A new tag amenity=charging_station has been proposed and is actively being developed. It is intended to cover details unique to EV charging stations, but not all of its details have been worked out yet. If you wish to have input on how it develops, see Proposed features/Charging station. It is intended to replace the two-tag combination above (though of course amenity=fuel would still be used at locations that have both fuel and chargers).
