Use to map Proposed feature/aerialway=zip line for more information and discussion., see
Ais used to transport people or material down a inclined fixed rope or wire, typically without propulsion sliding down by gravity. There may be auxiliary wires for security or operation.
This tag might be also used to tag.
aerialway=canopy was deprecated in favor of this tagging.
How to map
Other tags of likely interest for tagging:
- toll=*, fee=*
- foot=* - pedestrians allowed?
- for speed : maxspeed=*, incline=*
- duration=* or aerialway:duration=*
For zip lines on playgrounds or adventure/playgrounds:
- leisure=playground or sport=climbing_adventure
- min_age=* (and max_age=*)
- playground=* - see proposal for use as relation grouping playground elements together
- attraction:minheight=* (and attraction:minheight:escorted=*) For example attraction:minheight=120
- attraction:maxheight=* For example attraction:maxheight=195
Private/forestry zip lines:
Ziplines for the transport of goods:
- foot=no - passengers explicitly forbidden
- usage=freight - used for freight, passengers or personel may be allowed in some cases (+ foot=yes )
- usage=industrial - freight transport in industrial areas or mines
Forestry zipline used for downhill transport of logs:
Overlap with playground zipwires
There is no clear technical difference distinguishing playground zipwires and aerialway=zip_line, the same structure that is in a playground could be used to transport people across a river.
The information contained in playground=zipwire could be adequately described with aerialway=zip_line + max_age=* + leisure=playground + access restrictions and technical description but playground=zipwire is more compact and widespread for this purpose.
