Machine-readable Map Feature list/New Map Feature list

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


This is a sample page which demonstrates the use of the templates Template:TagDefBegin, Template:TagDefEnd and Template:TagDef for a new Map Feature list.


  • a tag definition is always structured with a TagDef-Template
  • it is automatically rendered by Wiki template expansion
  • harvesters can quite easily parse and analyse the information in the template declarations
