Private areas under CCTV surveillance?

This tag might be better than the (now approved) Proposed_features/Surveillance for private areas which happen to be under some sort of CCTV surveillance. After all, one cannot always place a node at the exact location of the camera(s) in places one cannot enter. otih: is it your intent that this tag be used for that kind of use? --achadwick 21:16, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Traffic surveillance

I would like to add the possibility to set this key for a way, as traffic cameras often head on one street only - otherwise we would need to add the direction that a camera node points on. Examples: [1] --Lulu-Ann 15:13, 13 August 2008 (UTC)


Even now that the surveillance tag is approved, I still think we need this one. Will it be opened for voting?

Passive vs Active

I see this tage bing used on cameras regularly, whereas it is intended for the area being under surveillance. I think the latter is hard to establish without knowing the specs of the camera, so I prefer to tag cameras instead of areas under surveillance. surveillance=* can then be used as further specification of the likely purpose of the camera: surveillance of the general public, a (semi-)private outdoor area or an indoor area.

moving cameras?

Can someone explain how the 'surveillance:transportations' tag would work? Would you describe an area or route for that bus/train? Doesn't make much sense to me at the moment for a map.

The tag will be added to the bus route relation. --Lulu-Ann 15:23, 17 February 2012 (UTC)
