Ais a type of gate where you have to go into an enclosure and open a gate to get through. They are commonly found in places where a normal gate would make it too easy to get through for cattle, especially if the gate were left open. Level crossings and woodland areas are two areas where they can often be found.
How to Map
Simply add the tag barrier=kissing_gate to the node where the kissing gate is.
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.
gate on the intersection of a path (dotted green) and a highway (grey); and gate on the intersection of a path (dotted green), a wall (yellow), and a highway (grey) in JOSM editor:
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.
- x = node
- O = node with barrier=gate
- ------ default way
- +++++ way with access=private
