An observation tower is a structure used to observe surroundings and offers a good view.
How to Map
- direction=* can be used for the field of view, direction=0-360 for full 360° panoramic view.
- Publicly accessible towers are often also tourism=viewpoint.
- If the watchtower is historical, add historic=yes.
One use of an observation tower is a tower that used to watch for and report forest fire (Tour de surveillance des feux de forêt(fr))
- leisure=bird_hide - objects for watching birds, may offer more limited view and be enclosed
