The format key describes the physical shape of an object. format=* describes the basic form, format:top=* the form of the head/the top. Used for historic milestones (historic=milestone) or boundary stones (historic=boundary_stone), but it can also be useful for other objects. For buildings, see 3D building.

Exact dimensions can be added using height=*, width=*, length=*, diameter=*.
