|Tools for this tag|
OSM is for features existing on the ground. This tag, however, is useful for preventing other mappers from inadvertently remapping demolished features that are still visible in aerial/satellite imagery currently available in OSM editors.
It must not be used for buildings gone and unlikely to mapped by accident. Such objects should be not mapped and deleted if mapped. OpenStreetMap is mapping current state of the world, not its past.
Projects for mapping nonexisting buildings
For mapping buildings that were demolished a long time ago and for archiving demolished buildings, please see and use OpenHistoricalMap instead.
