|Tools for this tag|
The key crossing:island=* is used to specify whether a pedestrian crossing has a refuge island (also known as pedestrian island).
The crossing:island=* key can be used on a pedestrian crossing node highway=crossing (or alternatively on a pedestrian crossing way highway=footway + footway=crossing). Possible values are yes and no. It is recommended to further specify the type of the pedestrian crossing using the crossing=* key.
- traffic_calming=island – A traffic island that is not built as a refuge at pedestrian crossings, but to calm traffic.
- footway=traffic_island – Used by some mappers for the part of the highway=footway that is on the traffic island, instead of using crossing:island=yes (at places where sidewalks and pedestrian crossings are mapped as ways).
- footway=crossing and crossing=* - Used to map crossings in detail, e.g. for mapping accessibility, etc.
