A highway location marker is the modern-day equivalent of a milestone. Unlike traditional milestones, however, which were originally carved from stone and sited at one-mile intervals, modern highway location markers are made from a variety of materials and are almost invariably spaced at intervals of a kilometre or a fraction thereof.

How to Map

Draw the node node direct on the way that represents the highway and add highway=milestone.

Tags to use in combination

Tags

The following features are based on those described in the article Proposed features/Milestones. This tag has not been approved but is widely used.

highway=milestone is mandatory. The node should be part of the way that represents the highway.

ref=* is optional, only to be used if the milestone actually has a reference number written on it.

distance=* is optional, only to be used if the milestone actually has a number being the distance from the beginning of the road/rail.

  • pk=* has also been used for this purpose, but a discussion on the tagging list in May 2013 suggests distance=* is a better choice than either pk=* or kp=*.
  • If no unit is explicitly given, the unit is assumed to be kilometers. To specify a different unit, add a space after the number, then the unit abbreviation (e.g., 35.0 mi).
  • Decimal numbers specified with points are allowed.
