repeat_on=* indicates at which levels similar copies of a given feature (for example a door or a window) can be found. This should be used only if the feature is exactly at the same position on other levels. This tag is useful for indoor mapping, and is a part of the Simple Indoor Tagging proposal.


This tag uses a similar syntax as level=* for multiple values. There are two syntaxes : one for ranges, and one for individual values.

  • Ranges: all levels between the start and end values are included. Start and end values are separated by a dash ( - ), for example repeat_on=1-3 includes levels 1, 2 and 3. Another example with negative levels: repeat_on=-3--1.
  • Individual values: all concerned levels are separated with a semicolon ( ; ). This should be used if those values can't be represented with an interval (as explained before). For example: repeat_on=-4;0;4.
