A chimney is a structure which provides ventilation for hot flue gases or smoke from a boiler, stove, furnace or fireplace to outside in the atmosphere. Normally found near power stations or large factories.

Please only map huge chimneys (for example of factories), not normal chimneys of houses - approximate height at least 10 meters.

How to map

Set a node node at the center of the chimney. Add the tag man_made=chimney.

Useful additional tags

  • building=yes - Chimney as a building (outline for 3D)
  • height=* - Height in meters
  • building:material=* - Material from which the chimney is built
  • historic=yes - when the chimney is historical and is no longer used for the original purpose

If there is a mobile phone base station or microwave antenna attached to the chimney you can use the following tags:
