I have created a new sub category of ramp called


this describes a ramp which is elevated off the ground rather than built up of solid material underneath it. It has been used on 2 ways 23433026 and 23422025. In the case of these 2 ways, the ramp a wheelchair accessible wood and metal trellis supported by steel towers leading up to an observation tower.

ramp:* tags describe that a way has a ramp, not that the way is a ramp (which, from your description, seems to be what you are trying to tag). They also cannot be used to tag multiple attributes of a single ramp.
If a way is tagged highway=footway + ramp:elevated=yes + ramp:wheelchair=yes, then it is a footway with an elevated ramp and a wheelchair ramp (not an "elevated wheelchair ramp") next to it. --Tordanik 21:00, 27 January 2010 (UTC)


Shouldn't the tag describe on which side the ramp is?

Instead of writing ramp=yes, wouldn't it be better to writeramp=left or ramp=right?

How to tag for separately mapped ramps

"Ramps that run physically separated (e.g. separated by a fence, height difference or wall), should be drawn separately. " - should ramp=no or ramp=yes used in such cases? Or maybe ramp=separate? Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 11:47, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

With the currently available values, that would be ramp=no. A ramp=separate value may be worth considering, though. --Tordanik 13:00, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
