How to Map
On a node
Simply add the tag barrier=gate to the node or way where the gate is.
This can be placed on a linear barrier, in the intersection node of a linear barrier and a highway way, or at a highway way node.
Avoid tagging highway intersections as that does not make clear which way has the impediment.
On a way
Tag a way with barrier=gate on the real position and width of the gate.
Based on the location below, the gate node should be the end of a way. A new way starts with the gate node and it should have the access set to private if the access is restricted.
O= node with barrier=gate
+++++way with access=private
There seems to be the key gate:type=* in use to specify more details for the gate type. Have a look at taginfo until some definitions get agreed on and documented here. Most common values are currently:
