The key lit_by_led=* indicates the presence of led lighting.

Most often used on a way tagged with highway=* but sensible on many other ways, too. Can be used as well on advertising devices tagged with advertising=*.

Recommended use

  • lit=yes: At night (unknown time schedule or daylight detection)
  • lit=24/7: Both night and day; e.g. in tunnels.
  • lit=automatic: When someone enters the way the lights are turned on.
  • lit=disused: There are lights installed, but never used.
  • lit=operating times: Use the schema of opening_hours to document when the light is ON, when the lighting is solely or primarily time dependent. For example lit=Mo-Fr 05:00-07:45 for a way lit for working days' morning rush hour only, or lit=sunset-sunrise for a way lit from sunset to sunrise.
