Status: in use

The key object:*=* was used by several mechanical edits in Germany in 2015 and afterward, to add address information to small man-made features such as lamp posts and memorials, which had no address (Key:addr:*) that was given out by officials. The subkeys use the Karlsruher Schema. The main feature tags used were public artworks, memorials, control boxes for traffic light- and telecommunication systems which were not assigned an address, but near to an object having an official address tagged with Key:addr:*.

It is not used in combination with the Key:addr:* tags.

These keys were meant to replace memorial:addr tags, but those have also remained in use.

How to map

Create a node at the center of the feature, add a main feature tag such as historic=memorial or highway=street_lamp, and then add the following tags:

  • object:postcode=*
    • Tagging of the numeric postcode of the area the POI is located in.

  • object:street=*
    • Tagging of the street name the POI is next to/most close to.
