border_type=* is a key which has frequently been filled by automated data imports. Where filled, it specifies the type of border the import describes. Since the imports themselves were not consistent with one another in their use of the tag, its use among mappers is also inconsistent. Like TIGER imported tags in the United States, border_type=* is generally not consumed by map data providers, and only provides guidance to mappers for creating appropriate boundary relations.

Maritime borders

See page of boundary=maritime for usage of the following values:

Country specific

China

An import in China used the values:

  • province
  • prefecture
  • county
  • township

Lithuania

Used admin level values in Lithuania:

Portugal

An import of administrative divisions included the following boundary types:

United States

An import of US states used the tag border_type=* to give the name of the boundary's type. Currently-known values are:

These should give the legal status of the boundary. This may be different from the place=* value or the admin_level=*. The values "territorial" and "municipality" (specific to territories, not states) have been added after the above-noted import. "Municipality" is included on the same line as county to indicate that in territories, Municipality is assigned admin_level=6, the same as county, regardless of its name ("island group," "district," "municipio," "village," "unorganized atoll," et cetera).
