Key Value Element Comment Rendering Photo
area yes Area Means a feature that is normally linear is an area. You should not add this to features that are already defined as an area type.
motorroad yes / no Way Node The motorroad tag is used to describe highways that have motorway-like access restrictions but that are not a motorway. 120px-Zeichen 331.svg.png
bridge yes / aqueduct / viaduct / swing / ... Way Node A bridge, use together with the layer tag. Value "yes" is generic, or you can specialize. Mapping-Features-Road-Bridge.png Bridge-yes.jpg
crossing no / traffic_signals / uncontrolled Node
tunnel yes Way A tunnel, use together with the layer tag. Mapping-Features-Road-Tunnel.png Tunnel.jpg
mountain_pass yes Node The highest point of a mountain pass. Mountain pass.jpg
cutting yes Way A cut in the land to carry a road or tram. Mostly in hilly landscape. Source Road cut.jpg
embankment yes Way A raised bank to carry a road, railway, or canal across a low-lying or wet area. Source Mapping-Features-Road-Embankment.png Embankment.jpg
lanes Number Way Total number of physical travel lanes making up the way. For a divided highway represented by two separate ways, each way will have one, or more, physical lanes
layer -5 to 5 Way 0: ground (default); -1..-5:under ground layer; 1..5 (not +1):above ground layer
This is intended to indicate actual physical separation, shouldn't be used just to influence rendering order.
surface paved / unpaved / asphalt / concrete / paving_stones / cobblestone / metal / wood / grass_paver / gravel / pebblestone / grass / ground / earth / dirt / mud / sand / ice_road Way Apply to all types of highways. If the tag is not present, it is assumed surface=paved, excepted for highway=footway and highway=track. (sealed/unsealed outside UK).
smoothness excellent / good / intermediate / bad / very_bad / horrible / very_horrible / impassable Way Apply to all types of highways.
ele Number Node Area Elevation (also known as altitude or height) above mean sea level in metre, based on geoid model EGM 96 which is used by WGS 84 (GPS). (see also Altitude)
width Number Way Width of way in metres
est_width Number Way A rough guess of the width of way in metres
incline Number% Node Way Incline steepness as percents. Positive/negative values indicate movement upward/downwards in the direction of the way.
start_date Date Way Date feature was created
end_date Date Way Date feature was removed
operator User Defined Node Way Area The operator tag can be used to name a company or corporation who's responsible for a certain object or who operates it.
opening_hours 24/7 or mo md hh:mm-hh:mm. (read described syntax) Node Way Area opening_hours describes when something is open.

sac_scale hiking / mountain_hiking / demanding_mountain_hiking / alpine_hiking / demanding_alpine_hiking / difficult_alpine_hiking Way Applies to highway=path and highway=footway. A classification scheme for hiking trails. Mountain hiking.jpg
trail_visibility excellent / good / intermediate / bad / horrible / no Way Applies to highway=path, highway=footway, highway=cycleway and highway=bridleway. A classification for hiking trails visibility
mtb:scale 0-5 Way Applies to highway=path and highway=track. A classification scheme for mtb trails (few inclination and downhill). S3.jpg
mtb:scale:uphill 0-5 Way A classification scheme for mtb trails for going uphill if there is significant inclination.
mtb:scale:imba 0-4 Way The IMBA Trail Difficulty Rating System shall be used for bikeparks. It is adapted to mtb trails with artificial obstacles.
mtb:description Text Way Applies to highway=path and highway=track. A key to input variable infos related to mtbiking on a way with human words
TMC:LocationCode see description Way Node Relation An identifier in electronic traffic-messages.
wood coniferous / deciduous / mixed Node Area Applies to landuse=forest and natural=wood detailing the sort of trees found within each landuse. Makes most sense when applied to areas.
admin_level Number Area Applies to boundary=administrative and is usually in the range 1 to 10, except for Germany where it might be 11 - see boundary.
rtc_rate A / B / C / D / F / XX Way Scale rating the suitability of ways for cycling. Used by online bicycle trip planning algorithms. "A" indicates that cyclists should go well out of their way to use this route, while "F" indicates that cyclists should go far out of their way to avoid this particular way; "B" and "D" are lesser magnitudes of "A" and "F"; "C" indicates no basis of evaluation either way; and "XX" indicates ways onto which trip planning algorithms should never route cyclists.
