Proposed features/Border Control
|Rendered as:||Little Flag(?) or|
Two definitions can match this feature depending on the votes:
- Intersection of a country border and a road or
- Temporary or permanently manned place used to control people / good transits between two countries.
To know where to cross a border.
I'd suggest a little flag - ideally a different color on each side of the border. It should not necessarely be the national flag - blue / red would perfectly fill the need.

I'd like to propose this symbol: (without the German text). This is used in many countries. -- 3247 18:43, 21 October 2007 (BST)
- i´ vote for 3247 symbol, same used in Spain--Sergionaranja 11:49, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
I suggest the following:
- Key: country=*
- Value : ISO 3166 country-code (GB, DE, FR, ...) of the relevant authority. The proposal for an embassy tag has a similar tag: Proposed_features/Embassy#Country
- Key: opening_hours=*
- Value : Permanent, Business hours, Occasional
- Do we want to mark roads crossing borders where there is no control (for instance between Schengen States) ?
- It is certainly nice to know as a cyclist that one CAN actually cross for sure at a particular point and are not going to find barbed-wire across the road. But that is a border crossing not a border control; a seperate issue perhaps? I can't think of a good solution at present. MikeCollinson 08:38, 11 June 2007 (BST)
- Even between Schengen States, there are still border control points. It's just that they are not used most of the time. -- 3247 18:31, 21 October 2007 (BST)
- Do we already have a standard to represent Opening_Hours ?
Might this be better as a barrier rather than an amenity? Are we tagging the building or the crossing point? --Hawke 22:06, 11 June 2007 (BST)
Would this be better implemented as checkpoint= border, which would allow for other types of governmental/non governmental checkpoints to be added to maps more generally? ShakespeareFan00 23:28, 22 October 2007 (BST)
