The key roof:height=* describes the height of a building's roof.


The height of a building=* or building:part=* roof is added with tag roof:height=*.


The default unit is metres. For height values with decimal places, use the period character as decimal separator.

Incorrect Explanation Correct
roof:height=4m The space between value and unit is missing. roof:height=4 m
roof:height=0,8 m The comma is used as wrong decimal separator. roof:height=0.8 m
