An advertising billboard (also called a hoarding) is a large outdoor advertising device, typically found in high-traffic areas such as alongside busy roads. It's either supported by a wall, or grounded and supported by one pole (or several poles). The size is an important characteristic. A billboard can be lit in different ways, and might be animated.

  • Management
    • operator=*: the company operating the billboard
    • ref=*: the billboard reference
    • access=*: can everybody change the content of the billboard?

  • Content and visibility
    • message=*: the kind of content shown on the billboard
    • display_surface=*: the surface dedicated to the display of message (without the frame)
    • orientation=*: how is the billboard directed compared to people/traffic flow
    • direction=*: how is the billboard directed (using cardinal points)
    • visibility=*: how far is the billboard visible?
