Extended traffic signs tagging
Proposal status: Draft (under way)
Proposed by: yopaseopor
Tagging: traffic_sign=*
Applies to: node
Definition: An extended and advanced scheme to tag all kind of traffic signs
Statistics:

Draft started: 2017-02-05
RFC start: 2024-02-17

Rationale

Traffic signs are one of the most important kind of elements you can find... in the "road world". They are extended all over the world and there are so many kinds of them. But it was a minor tag in OSM (few elements, few tags related, few values...until now). It is important to structure a complete scheme which answers all the meanings of a traffic sign, not only the meaning for the road but also the element itself.

Present:Different approaches

By key

Highway.The classics

In 2006 we can find the first traffic sign tag, stop, with its main key, highway. From then there's an approximation with nodes with the same key: highway=give_way, highway=traffic_signals, and highway=stop.

Value Element Sign Comment Additional tags on the way
highway=stop node UK traffic sign 601.1.svg Stop sign. Usually tagged as highway=stop instead. Text of the wiki has changed so the proposal is based on this version highway=stop (on a node)
highway=give_way node UK traffic sign 602.svg Give way sign. Usually tagged as highway=give_way instead. highway=give_way (on a node)
highway=traffic_signals node
Traffic lights 4 states.png
Traffic signal. highway=traffic_signals (on a node)

Human-readable values

Tags Element Sign Comment Tags for affected highways
traffic_sign=city_limit +

name=* (name of city/village)

node Vienna Convention road sign E7d-V1.svg City/village sign. By default it is assumed there is an end of city/village sign on the back for drivers in the opposite direction; add city_limit=begin if this is not the case. source:maxspeed=DE:urban if not overridden by other speed limit source (or with other appropriate country code)

zone:traffic=DE:urban

traffic_sign=city_limit +

city_limit=end +

name=* (name of city/village)

node Vienna Convention road sign E8c-V1.svg Vienna Convention road sign E8d-V1.svg End of city/village sign. source:maxspeed=DE:rural if not overridden by other speed limit source (or with other appropriate country code)
traffic_sign=maxspeed +

maxspeed=* (the speed limit)

node Vienna Convention road sign C14-V1 (kmh).svg Maximum speed sign. Like all traffic signs these should be tagged as a node. Usually not part of the highway, so the direction can be inferred. maxspeed=* + source:maxspeed=sign
traffic_sign=maxspeed +

maxspeed=implicit

node Vienna Convention road sign C17b-V1-2.svg Vienna Convention road sign C17b-V1-1.svg End of maximum speed sign.
traffic_sign=stop node Stop sign. Usually tagged implicitly on a node of the highway with highway=stop instead. Text of the wiki has changed so the proposal is based on this version highway=stop (on a node)
traffic_sign=give_way node Give way sign. Equivalent to the United States yield sign. Usually just highway=give_way is tagged instead. highway=give_way (on a node)
traffic_sign=variable_message node VMS - 2x12 - Snow Slow Down.svg Electronic Variable Message Sign, also known as Dynamic Message Signs. Remotely programmed to give traffic information such as expected travel times to destinations, temporary speed limits, incident warnings etc. Usually combined with man_made=gantry. (Example photo)
traffic_sign=overtaking +

overtaking=no

nodeway Vienna Convention road sign C13ab-V1.svg No overtaking sign. overtaking=no
traffic_sign=overtaking +

overtaking=yes

node Vienna Convention road sign C17c-V1-2.svg Vienna Convention road sign C17c-V1-1.svg End of no overtaking sign.
traffic_sign=maxwidth nodeway Maximum width sign. maxwidth=*
traffic_sign=maxheight nodeway Maximum height sign. maxheight=*
traffic_sign=maxweight nodeway Maximum weight sign. maxweight=*
traffic_sign=stop_ahead node Vienna Convention road sign Aa-21-T2-1.svg Vienna Convention road sign Ab-21a-V1.svg Stop ahead sign. Can be a standard yield sign plus additional plate containing STOP and distance (as in most of Europe) or a red triangle or yellow diamond with an image of a stop sign elsewhere.
traffic_sign=yield_ahead node Vienna Convention road sign Aa-20-T2-1.svg Yield/give way ahead sign. Can be a standard yield sign plus additional plate with distance (as in most of Europe) or a red triangle or yellow diamond with an image of a yield/give way sign elsewhere.
traffic_sign=signal_ahead node Vienna Convention road sign Aa-17a-V1.svg Vienna Convention road sign Ab-17a.svg Signal ahead sign.
traffic_sign=hazard nodeway Vienna Convention road sign Ab-32-V1.svg A hazard to motorists. Combined with hazard=* to indicate the type of hazard.

Traffic signs by national ID

Signs specific to a particular country should be mapped by the country/region prefix followed by a colon and then the traffic sign.

  • The country/region prefix should be the  ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code or  ISO 3166-2 country subdivision code (always uppercase). This prefix is separated by a colon : from the sign. Additional colons can be included within the prefix to create a hierarchy of further custom subdivisions.
  • Traffic signs should be represented by their official ID (if such IDs are assigned).
  • Multiple unrelated signs should be separated with a semicolon ;. If traffic signs are related, the additional sign IDs should be separated from the main sign by comma ,.
  • Where the traffic sign requires a numeric or textual value, you can supply it after the ID using brackets [value]. This can be repeated for signs that require multiple parameters. For numeric parameters, use a dot . as decimal separator and a minus - for negative values (if needed).
  • In case of multiple signs separated by commas or semicolons, the prefix should appear only once at the beginning (except if signs from different prefixes are combined).
Examples

UK traffic sign 616.svgUK traffic sign 954.svg traffic_sign=GB:616,954

Here it is a table with most of them Key:traffic sign#Lists of IDs per country

By way of mapping them

Also there are three ways of mapping them: as a separated node, as part of way or on a way.

Separated node

Create a separate node beside the road at the position of the actual sign. This allows to map the exact physical position of the sign, but it is impossible to reliably deduce the affected road or travel direction in this case. Software algorithms which operate on ways will thus generally not be able to consider the traffic sign, but only the tags of the way instead.

You can use the direction=* tag to describe the facing orientation of the sign by using an angle or cardinal direction.

Note that the sign is facing against the direction of travel. So if you encounter a traffic sign when traveling north, then the sign is facing south. So you can add direction=180 or direction=S. Likewise, when traveling west, signs are facing east, so you tag them with direction=90 or direction=E.

Node in a way

As a part of the way you can use the direction=* with the values direction=forward, direction=backward, direction=90 direction=270 , to show the facing direction . It is easy for renders to assume being part of the way traffic signs affect that way but it is difficult to assume the exact position of the traffic sign.

On a way or area

When tagged on a way or an area, the traffic_sign=* tag describes the traffic sign(s) that apply to that way or area. The tag is not meant to mark the actual position of the sign in this case, but the affected way or area instead. It should however be assumed that the physical location of the sign is at the beginning and / or the end of the affected section (but note that the affected section may be comprised of multiple ways within OSM).

Present: Problems

There are two different keys and three ways of mapping traffic signs. It is complicated for a newbie mapper to know how to map the possible different values and their order. Every code has its place. And mapping direction is not easier, when you have a node alone you need to put the facing direction When you have the node in a way you have to put forward or backward relative to the way it is. This can be the opposite value.

Aim of this proposal

The aim of this new scheme for traffic_signs is to unite the different approaches for mapping traffic sign as it is. It uses the most complete parts of the existing schemes. It uses the "categories" you can find in traffic signs law from Europe or US, like hazard with a node per traffic sign and with a human readable value,using existing OSM tags to his when possible and marking the position with a numbered subtag :2 or :3...This avoid misinterpretation errors from the tags and also the multi-value problems. Also permits the correspondence between some tags each other. And to be more specific you can use the tag traffic_sign:id=* to specify the code of this traffic sign per country if you know the value. It uses the traffic ID national code you can find in the traffic sign law of each country to mark which traffic sign is and also gives the entire importance as states do in their laws (we know it because when you ask a government e.g. Spanish government, for the database of traffic signs in their roads each traffic sign has a unique ID with its position and code.) There are so convenience to not fit more than three traffic signs at the same pole to make easier the readability for human eye at the reality. This proposal does not deprecate any method but establishes a scheme how you can map a traffic sign in a more specific mapping method.

How it works. How to map

The mapping method is a node part of the way using human-readable values (more of them used in OSM), the possibility of specify the national id for every traffic sign (to get the exact picture) , and explaining its direction and side relative to the way. Also it mention its position if there is more than one together.

  • First you say the type of the traffic sign with human-readable categories and values. Here it is some examples of approximation of readable values and "subkeys" applied to the traffic_sign key (in this proposal we NOT propose any value or category, all of them will be proposed in others proposals, here I'm only propose the way of mapping traffic signs). : Warning (Hazard in OSM),Regulatory (new)(all the maxspeed,maxwidth,maxheight,maxweight,maxaxleload,overtaking...),Information (new) (includes city_limit traffic_signs) ,Complementary (new)or Others. Stop and give_way uses highway (existing) key until community decide to unify all the traffic signs with one key (no changes for present situation, I mean).
  • Then you apply the subkey for this type (as hazard).
  • Do you know the id of the traffic sign in its country? Use traffic_sign:id=* (new). The country/region prefix should be the  ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code or  ISO 3166-2 country subdivision code (always uppercase). This prefix is separated by a colon : from the sign. Additional colons can be included within the prefix to create a hierarchy of further custom subdivisions. Then it should be represented by their official ID (if such IDs are assigned).

Position

When there is a second traffic sign you use the subtag 2: to traffic_sign=* tag and/or traffic_sign:id=* so on

(e.g. traffic_sign:2=maxspeed and/or traffic_sign:2:id=DE:206).

Direction

The mapping method is a node , mainly part of the way, using the values explaining its direction relative to the way. Here there are the possible directions.

Tag=value Comment
direction=forward Forward to the way. It is relative to the orientation you draw a way, as rivers
direction=backward Backward to the way. It is relative to the orientation you draw a way, as rivers
direction=90 (clockwise) 90º to the way. It is relative to the orientation you draw a way, as rivers
direction=270 (clockwise) 270º to the way. It is relative to the orientation you draw a way, as rivers
direction=* (clockwise) other directions relative to the way

Side

It is completed with a tag side that marks the side of the way traffic sign is in if you use the direction you say it before.

Tag=value Comment
side=right the right side of the way . It is relative to the orientation you draw a way, as rivers
side=left the left side of the way.
side=both the left and right sides at the same time.
side=up all elevated traffic signs or traffic panels.
side=down all traffic road marks.

Final example

Here we have a final example. Let's remember the steps:

  • 1- type of the traffic sign: Warning (Hazard in OSM),Regulatory (new)(all the maxspeed,maxwidth,maxheight,maxweight,maxaxleload,overtaking...),Information (new) (includes city_limit traffic_signs) ,Complementary (new)or Others. Stop and give_way uses highway (existing) key until community decide to unify all the traffic signs with one key (no changes for present situation, I mean).
  • 2-Apply the subkey for this type (as hazard).
  • 2B-If you know the national id for this traffic sign use traffic_sign:id=* (new)
  • 3-Direction relative to the way: direction=forward, direction=backward, direction=90 direction=270 .
  • 4-Side of the way the sign is located.
  • 4B If there is a second traffic sign you might use the subtag 2: to traffic_sign tag and traffic_sign:id or whatever can exist conflict

e.g. :

Spain traffic signal r301-50.svg

Examples of possible traffic signs human readable values

If this proposal is accepted, then there will be other specific proposals about the specific human-readable values and its categories (following national traffic laws and most OSM used values)

Tag=value Comment
highway=traffic_signals Traffic signal.
highway=stop Stop sign. Usually tagged implicitly on a node of the highway with highway=stop to unify all the human readable values for this. Left as present situation. This proposal does not touch this value. Text of the wiki has changed so the proposal is based on this version
highway=give_way Give way sign. Usually tagged as highway=give_way to unify all the human readable values for this. Left as present situation. This proposal does not touch this value.
traffic_sign=hazard A hazard is a potential source of damage to health, life, property, or any other interest of value (see  Hazard). Hazards include natural features of the environment as well as those of human origin.
traffic_sign=maxspeed

traffic_sign=minspeed

traffic_sign=maxspeed:advisory

traffic_sign=implicit (new)

traffic_sign=maxlength

traffic_sign=maxwidth

traffic_sign=maxweigth

traffic_sign=maxaxleload

traffic_sign=overtaking

traffic_sign=overtaking:hgv

traffic_sign=access (new)

traffic_sign=regulatory(new)

traffic_sign=restriction(new)

traffic_sign=mandatory (new)

These signs marks the regulation. They can be prohibitive, mainly give a positive (mandatory) instruction ,mainly give a positive advisory instruction, can mark the end of that prohibition. And also here you have all the restrictions of max* or min*.
traffic_sign=information (new)

traffic_sign=lanes (new)

traffic_sign=services (new)

Here you have all the signs you can find about information instructions.
traffic_sign=complementary(new) These are all the signs that accompany all the other traffic signs to clarify or adjust the meaning or the situation that applies the main traffic sign.
traffic_sign=destination (new)

traffic_sign=ref_id (new)

traffic_sign=boundary(new)

traffic_sign=city_limit

All the traffic signs about orientation, destination and confirmation. Not only the plate itself.
traffic_sign=* All common values according to taginfo.

When there is a second traffic sign you use the subtag 2: to traffic_sign tag and so on (e.g. traffic_sign:2=maxspeed and/or traffic_sign:2:id=DE:206 (new)).

One category exists. A good start. Traffic_sign=hazard

Due to the approval of hazard in 2020 there were born the first category for traffic signs as it. Hazard (the initial version of this proposal was talking about warning traffic signs.As you can see in this table all Vienna convention and MUTCD has similar items to specify these situations. It is interesting to use existent tagging in OSM so probably would not have any big change rather than some new proposals of human readable values.

In this other table you will see image of the two main styles of pictures Worldwide accepted: Vienna convention and MUTCD. They can change a little by countries but they are similar. Then you have the national id for some traffic signs as an example.
