|Tools for this tag|
The abandoned:building=* is used to map a building which has fallen into serious disrepair and is not habitable or usable, and which could only be put back into safe operation with expensive effort, such as completely rebuilding the roof or walls. Such buildings will still have some physical form reflective of their former use visible in the landscape, but may be missing parts of the roof or wall and therefore cannot be inhabited.
How to map
Add the tag abandoned:building=yes to an area around the remaining walls, for an abandoned building which is partially or significanlty ruined, when the specific type of building is no longer possible to determine, or not known. Or you may use a node when the shape of the abandoned former building is not clear.
- More specific values such as abandoned:building=house, abandoned:building=barn or abandoned:building=bunker may be added when this is still clear.
