WikiProject Tajikistan/Tags

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The goal of this page is to present the main tags that can be used in the context of Tajikistan. As Tajikistan is still very poorly mapped on OSM, it is important to focus on a few main features (road network and settlements). The list below however is nothing but a suggestion, and no mapper should be prevented from adding any other tag, if he / she feels that sufficient source information is available.

You can find the corresponding JOSM presets here

Mapping of Khorog

If you want to help mapping the town of Khorog, please follow the instructions on the HOT tasking manager (high-resolution satellite imagery available)

If you don't know anything about Khorog and still want to help mapping, you can get a flare of the context by looking at this picture:

Place town tj.jpg

It's taken from the mountains on the north of the town, looking towards south and the center of the picture is the main car bridge

Tags for settlements and housing

Note that settlements can be identified from many sources, while buildings will require high-resolution satellite imagery and / or field work.
