Don't use disused|abandoned=yes

I am under the impression this is generally discouraged and should not be used for new features. One of the other alternatives in comparison of life cycle concepts could be handy, my favorite beeing lifecycle prefix. RicoZ (talk) 14:45, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, to simplify this proposal, I'll try to keep out of that discussion and remove the tags from the list of recommended tags. --Biff (talk) 16:02, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

ele=* and 3D mapping

There was some work done on 3D mapping of bridges, I would reuse as much as possible: Bridge3D. Especially it would be useful to allow ele=* on nodes equivalent like in this picture

In this picture the ele values are attached to the nodes of the highway but it might also make sense to attach them to nodes of the outline or any mix of those. RicoZ (talk) 14:55, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Thanks. My idea was to provide the possibility for the tagger to simply copy info from traffic signs (like the one shown at the top of the proposal page) or other sources. It is not my intention to forbid the use of ele=* on any nodes. I suppose that 3D renderers would not rely on the simple, single value and rather try to evaluate the nodes. --Biff (talk) 16:07, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Objects in tunnels, multilevel tunnels

I have done a proposal concerning this and a bunch of other points - Proposed features/Simplify man made=bridge mapping - and most parts should be applicable here. In particular:

  • Objects on bridges
  • location=bridge instead of bridge=*
  • Multi-level bridges

should work in an equivalent way. Please have a look at this proposal and let me know what you think. RicoZ (talk) 15:18, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Interesting idea. I prefer it over relations that many mappers find complicated. I'll think about your proposal and comment there. --Biff (talk) 16:13, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Area highway

Not sure what the status of Proposed features/area:highway is but it should be mentioned. I think man_made=bridge/tunnel can be seamlessly combined with that. RicoZ (talk) 15:50, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Interesting. I'll add a pointer. --Biff (talk) 16:17, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
