guy_wire
Status: Proposed (under way)
Proposed by: manfredbrandl
Tagging: man_made=guy_wire
Applies to: Way
Definition: Define a guy wire for a mast (man_made=mast)
Rendered as: thin black or dark-grey line similar to aerial_way=draglift
Drafted on: 2016-01-18


Proposal

I propose the new value "guy_wire" for the key "man_made" to show guy wires for masts (man_made=mast) See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guy-wire and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Guywire.jpg

Rationale

The guy_wire is usually long and has good visibility. I think there are at least several thousand guy_wires on the world, but there may be more.

Examples

http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/391922232 and http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/391922233

Tagging

man_made=guy_wire

Applies to

Wires of different material (steel most of the time)

Rendering

thin black or dark-grey line similar to aerial_way=draglift above all other features because it is overground and usually only other wires above it (seldom)
