Reference number of a company in a harbour. These numbers are often issued geographically, which makes it possible to group several companies on the road signage. These numbers are used frequently in the Netherlands, for example.

How to map

Add ref:harbour=* to the node, area, or multipolygon relation of the company.

Country specifics


A company can have both a BAG-node (address node imported from the Basisregistratie Gebouwen en Adressen) and an area. The number can be added to both. When a company has the number '5000' or 'Haven 5000' the tag ref:harbour=5000 can be added to the area and BAG-node of the company.
