This article describes the tagging to support a lane assistant.

Description

Lane assist helps a (car)driver into the correct lane, which is especially very useful at unfamiliar junctions. Lane assist has two flavours:

1. the arrows on the road, and sometimes on the side of the road (example: A16 arrow sign example.jpg), showing you the lay-out of the lanes. For navigational purposes the correct lanes should be highlighted.

2. the information signs above or next to the road, showing you the destinations of the lanes.

Tagging

Satellite photos (e.g. Bing) are very handy to view the arrows on the highways. To get this data in Openstreetmap you need lanes=* and turn:lanes=*. This :lanes page shows you how to tag the lanes.

Digital photos or videos (public domain or taken by yourself) are very helpful to acquire destination data. The wiki page for destination=* and the proposed extensions on the destination key Proposed features/Destination details describe how you can enter the acquired destination data into Openstreetmap.

Examples

Several examples are available at the moment. More examples will be posted here in the coming months. The examples combine both flavours of tagging for a lane assistant.
