Provide a more simple way for anyone to group "any moving things" sharing common properties (Could they be legal or physical )


  • rework the access system

Apply to

  • nothing

It describe a new set of words to group "moving things" such as : motocar,bus,tank being a subset of vehicles

First see the existing liste of vehicles here : vehicle types on wich I started my work

And since a picture would better give you the idea, here it is !

Warning : this diagram is old and not in line with the current access model in OSM.

SVG version :

Per country defaults

In opposition to almost any other proposal about legal access properties, who wants to create defauts on a per country basis, I am strongly against, and this proposal does propose only ONE grouping tree. If you don't already guessed my arguments, ask in the talk page

Groups in text :

I don't want to re-invent the wheel, so any vehicles allready in use should appear somewhere on my image tree


I don't care


Please use the talk page.
