How to map
Add a node at the location of the trig point and use the man_made=survey_point. You can also add a name using name=*, its bracket number with ref=*, and its elevation using ele=* (mind the height reference system!).

- aerial=yes for extra markings meant to be visible in aerial photographs - a white cross, usually
- In the UK tpuk_ref= can be used for the ID of a trig point on the trigpointinguk.com website.
- type=triangulation, type=observation_spot, type=fixed_point and type=benchmark have meaning in nautical maps, where they refer to INT-1 codes B20, B21, B22 and B23 respectively.
