|Tools for this tag|
The key protected=* has been used to specify the duration or extent of legal protection for an area or feature.
This tag was first used in Massachusetts, USA, from a MassGIS import of features also tagged with natural=*, leisure=*, or landuse=*. The most common value is protected=perpetuity, but protected=limited is common and protected=temporary was imported for 100 features.
