This page has been labelled for deletion.
The given reason is: Time zone boundaries are not observable on the ground. Don't map them in OSM. -- Frederik Ramm.
Use Key:timezone instead to tag relevant countries/territories or subdivisions. This deletion is contested, see the talk page..
This normally means the page title is a bad one, and the content has been moved somewhere better. If a page title is vaguely meaningful, the page should perhaps be a redirect, or hold a small summary for historical interest instead. If you disagree with its deletion, please explain why on its talk page.
The page should now be empty apart from this message (as per procedure). The page history shows what used to be on this page, and allows people to rescue an old revision. We may decide to do this, but otherwise a wiki 'sysop' user can delete this page more permanently at some point. In the meantime we should fix any pages linking to here.

|Tools for this tag|
boundary=timezone is used to tag regions that observes a uniform standard time. Such boundaries could be used for automatic adjustment of clock time during the travel using current GPS coordinates, for example.
- Name of the time zone could be specified by name=* (Central European Time, Moscow Time, Pacific Time Zone...)
- For abbreviation code for time zone use ref=*, e.g. ref=AST for Atlantic Standart Time Zone, ref=CET for Central European Time etc.
- Use utc=* to tag Coordinated Universal Time offset of the time zone in ±hh:mm format, e.g. utc=+01:00 for Central European Time, utc=-07:00 for Mountain Time Zone etc.
- Use timezone=* to specify which IANA time zone database time zone applies.
