Definition: An aid to mounting a horse, usually steps.

Proposal

To map those features that are mounting_blocks traditionally used to mount horses. Mounting Block, Eglinton.JPG

Rationale

A feature that has currently differing ways map it. This is an attempt to dissuade certain tagging, and encourage a specific tag.

The values of horse_dismount_block, mounting_step and mounting_steps have no existence in the data base so may be discounted as entries for the value.

The question is then what key to use with it.

Taginfo had (in descending popularity)


Of these the following have some concerns;

  • animal=* appears to be have many different uses e.g. access, specifying animals kept in a zoo.
  • historic=* some may be 'old' and some 'new'. Not all of them are of historic interest even if old.
  • horse=* is used for access restrictions.
  • amenity=* is used for things of use to all the community, not just horse riders. Should amenity=* be used for this feature?

Examples

Tagging

The value of mounting_block looks to be common use. The present problem is what key to use.


Applies to

May be applied to a single node or an area. node area


Rendering

Head view of a horse, a step and a rider about to mount?
