This page describes a key prefix rather than a simple key.

The string 'tiger' is the prefix of keys that are part of the TIGER import of the United States.

The TIGER to OSM Attribute Map describes some of the imported TIGER tags in OpenStreetMap.


In 2010 tiger tags were removed from about 177 million nodes, affected tags were: tiger:county=*, tiger:tlid=* and tiger:upload_uuid=*. See TIGER fixup/node tags for details. As a result, tiger keys are now almost exclusively found on ways.
