Proposed features/Speed limit

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Speed is an important feature for many reason:

  • Best itinerary calculation
  • ETA/Remaining time
  • It can't be deduced from the road type in many countries
  • Ability to warn user of excessive speed

All those reasons means that speed storage should be defined in a standard way

  • Already done. No need to propose a new feature. See maxspeed on Map Features Welshie 15:36, 2 October 2006 (BST)
  • I disapprove this proposal. Use existing maxspeed=* for that purpose. --spaetz 10:05, 26 March 2007 (BST)

Given that this has only two negative opinions since October 2006, I declare this proposal down-voted.
