Description
The system relation is used to make multiple things work as one system.
Status: Unspecified

Relations of type system are used to represent complex arrays of things as one system.

Simple points are mapped in OSM. If you have two things they are mapped seperately. However, this model only works for seperate things. If one thing has multiple parts, we put them together in a relation. For all of the multiple parts to function as one, they are a system.
