How to map

Draw a way along the barrier location. This tag may be used either on a way or on a closed area.

For general information on how to map fences and associated features see barriers.

You may also add:

  • height=* If you know the height of the fence.
  • fence_type=* To detail the material or the properties of the fence.

To place an entrance in the fence, use barrier=entrance.
