This feature has been labeled as deprecated
. The recommended replacement is: line_management=*
The reason is documented in Deprecated features
. You are still free to continue to use or interpret this tag as you see fit since OpenStreetMap does not have “banned features”.
Under no circumstances should you (semi-)automatically change “deprecated” tags to something else in the database on a large scale without conforming to the automated edits code of conduct
. Any such change will be reverted.
This tag describes the functional type or role of a power pole, such as a dead-end (anchor) pole.
See also line_attachment=* to state how the supported line is bound to the support.
||A pole with strain insulators used at the end of a line, for example at a substation or at the transition to an underground cable (add location:transition=yes). Designed to resist the full one-sided tension of the conductors.
||A line branch starts at this pole. If the branch line is a cable then add location:transition=yes. The branching can take different forms which can be indicated by the following tags.
- branch:type=tap The conductors of the branching circuit(s) are electrically connected to the 'through' circuit(s).
- branch:type=split The circuits arriving at this tower continue in different directions.
- branch:type=loop A circuit departs in the branch direction and another circuit arrives from the same direction to continue in the 'through' direction. Typically used for 'looping' one circuit into a nearby substation.
- branch:type=cross Two otherwise unrelated power lines intersect here and use this tower as a common support.
