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:

US import

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

  • state
  • county
  • township

An import in china used the values:

  • province
  • prefecture
