Status: de facto

A building that was built as a storage tank.

If the storage tank is still used for storage, add man_made=storage_tank.

Storage tanks are not always classified as buildings, and the use of building=storage_tank is therefore sometimes discouraged.[1]

How to map

Set a node node at the center of the feature or draw an area area along its outline.

Tag it with building=storage_tank.

Tags used in combination

  • height=* - height in meters

  • material=* - main material the storage tank is made of
  • location=underground
  • operator=* - Company, corporation, person or any other entity who is directly in charge of the current operation of a map object
