Talk:Proposed features/Hot Spring
Use with natural=springs
I went looking for hot springs tag in the wiki and instead found your proposal. I agree that we need to distinguish hot springs over over the the others. However, I would rather see a type=hot and maybe a drinkable=yes/no. (or potable to be more exact.)
I was attempting to add Baker Hot Springs in Washington state. Being able to search for hot springs would definitely be a plus.
You may use the tag natural=hot_spring on a single node. For a stream you would tag with waterway=stream, a pool natural=water. For the additional information of drinkable then drinking_water=yes, for temperature there is another proposed tag of temperature http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Temperature.
