Please note

  • Do not perform mass retagging of power=sub_station objects. This would be considered a mechanical edit.
  • Don't retag substations just for the purpose of 'correcting' the tag but take the opportunity to review the object and add useful information. In particular it is very desirable to add the voltage=* and/or the substation=* type if those tags are missing. When known also add the substation name and/or operator.
  • For larger substations covered by good quality aerial imagery you may also consider mapping internal components such as busbars, bays and transformers.
