Proposed features/key:roller coaster
|Roller coaster elements|
|Status:||Proposed (under way)|
|Definition:||For roller coaster track, stations and ancillaries.|
|Rendered as:||Similar to existing light rail rendering for the track.|
The current tagging for roller coasters is a complete mismatch of other tags. This proposal is for a way to standardise the roller coaster specific tags in use and bring them all under a single tag while keeping the generic attraction=roller_coaster tag.
Existing tags include:
- railway=light_rail (ex)
- railway=monorail and railway=narrow_gauge (ex1, ex2 not actually a monorail)
- attraction=roller_coaster (ex1, ex2, ex3)
- attraction=rollercoaster (ex)
- Other values in use from TagInfo.
- Related tags from OSM Semantic Network.
Some of these have a note to say it's a roller coaster but not all.
This proposal replaces the original proposal that was generally said to be "misplaced".
attraction=roller_coaster should be used to mark the extent of the ground area of the roller coaster (queues, building, fencing), and NOT the outer limits of all the track which can extend outside the attraction.
|rcdb_id=*||ID in the Roller Coaster Database. (optional)|
|rcdb_url=*||URL for the page in the Roller Coaster Database. (optional)|
|layer=*||Possibly used to specify the layer relative to other sections of the track or other objects.|
|height=*||The absolute height from the normal ground level.|
|layer=*||Possibly used to specify the layer relative to other objects|
Other values can be used for other roller coaster hardware.
