|Orientation of the roof|
|Used on these elements|
|Tools for this tag|
The orientation of the roof of a building or building part. Mostly used for 3D tagging.
For roofs with a ridge, the ridge should be assumed to be parallel to the longest side of the building roof:orientation=along. But it can be tagged explicitly with this tag. Note, however, that the interpretation differs between different 3D rendering applications. Osmbuildings.org switched in 2021 from this interpretation and now defaults to roof:orientation=across.
|roof:orientation=along||roof ridge along the longest side of the building.
This should the default, as most detached buildings are built that way.
|roof:orientation=across||roof ridge across the longest side of the building.
