This page explains how to add a new mapping feature to OpenStreetMap's documentation wiki.

(It is good practice to also consult Any tags you like.)

  1. Decide which name to use for the feature. You can later add links under other names, too. For instance there is a page called Parking with links from Car park, Underground parking and so on. The name(s) should be chosen based on what the user will search for, not what the tags look like.
  2. Create a Proposal page for your feature at "Feature Name/Proposal" where Feature Name is the name chosen above.
  3. Put {{subst:proposal}} into the empty page and save it once. This will add some simple scaffolding to the page which you can then edit.
  4. Describe the feature before the first section header. Add information to all the sections.
  5. Upload photos and rendered maps and link them into the new page as needed.
  6. Add the {{Feature}} to the top of the page at "Feature Name" (Note, no "/Proposal" this time) to link the concept into Feature Index
  7. Add #REDIRECT pages under all the names you want to the new page.
