How to map
On a node
This can be placed on a linear barrier, in the intersection node of a linear barrier and a highway way, or at a highway way node.
Avoid tagging highway intersections as that does not make clear which way has the impediment.
On a way
Add a node on the intersection between any footways and the gate, also tagged with barrier=gate, much like how crossings are mapped. (This helps routers as many will just ignore the gate if there is no node)
Based on the location below, the gate node should be the end of a way. A new way starts with the gate node and it should have the access set to private if the access is restricted.
O= node with barrier=gate
+++++way with access=private
There seems to be the key gate:type=* in use to specify more details for the gate type. Have a look at Taginfo until some definitions get agreed on and documented here. Most common values are currently:
- gate:type=swing - but see also barrier=swing_gate
Similar keys (only gate:type=* was documented here until 2020-03):
