A  fort is a stand-alone defensive structure which differs from a castle in that there is no permanent residence. There may have been temporary housing for the crew.

Forts are distinct from fortresses as they are generally more modern.

How to map?

Set a node at the centre of the fort or draw an area along the outline.

Tag with historic=fort.

If the fort has a  moat around it, map the outline of the moat and tag it with natural=water + water=moat.

Tags to use in combination

If the fort contains any amenity such as a museum, restaurant or hotel, then add another object for this.
