Status: In use

A note is used to inform other mappers about non-obvious information about an element, the author's intent when creating it, or hints for further improvement. It is usually recorded against a node, way or relation.

Standard maps normally don't show notes.

The distinction between note and comment is that a note is generally used on nodes/ways/relations to describe real-world things like "the busstop is actually here but the signpost was knocked down in september 2009", whereas a comment is used on changesets.

The length of a note is limited to 255 characters by the OSM server. Caveat: some front-end editing tools seem to allow one to create longer notes but the upload of those notes will not succeed.


  • - displays note's text directly as an overlay on the map.
  • JOSM - displays a small "N" on object with a tag note attached.

  • comment=* - for adding text describing the changeset to other mappers.
  • description=* - for adding text that might be viewable to the end user.
  • fixme=* - to mark objects and places that need further attention.
