|Observation of the current functional status of a mapped feature - now discouraged|
|Used on these elements|
|Tools for this tag|
The key operational_status=* has been used in the past to document an observation of the current functional status of a mapped feature.
In the past this tag was sometimes used by the HDM for Humanitarian mapping projects, for example with amenity=drinking_water. It has also been used with building imports and some organized mapping activities.
In many cases this tag is discouraged. It is now preferred to use a Lifecycle prefix such as disused:, abandoned: or construction:, or in some cases a lifecycle tag such as disused=*, abandoned=*, construction=*: see Comparison_of_life_cycle_concepts.
