User:4rch/boundaries disputed territories
This is a proposal on how to map disputed territories. This proposal should be compatible with the well established mapping of boundaries: Boundaries
Boundaries which are tagged with boundary=administrative should only cover areas which a state has physical control of.
This tagging scheme should only be used for the mapping of official government positions and not to map claims from any political parties or other organisations or individuals.
|type||boundary||also deprecated type multipolygon is used (see software implementation notes)|
|boundary||claim||for a claimed boundary (sometimes in the middle of a river or 12 Miles away from coastline)|
|admin_level||the admin level|
|country=*||ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code of the country which claims the territory.|
|outer||one or more||The multiple ways that form the closed border|
|inner||zero or more||Enclaves of this border - the multiple ways that form the closed inner borders|
|subarea||zero or more|| Refer to relations of sublevel boundaries inside this administrative level. |
Note: Optional, disputed and redundant (references to sub levels may also be found with spatial queries). Also referencing other relations makes editing more complicated in some cases.
|admin_centre||zero or one||Node representing the administrative centre (a capital, county seat etc.), usually a town, city or village (depending of the boundary level, see place=*).|
|label||zero or one||Node representing where to draw the label. (This is currently not supported by Mapnik rendering)|
