General landscape photos

User takes a picture in the middle of the woods (i.e., just a landscape photo and not a photo of a points of interest mappable object) at coordinates X,Y , and makes it available at URL Z.

Can the photo be marked in OSM? How to? Jidanni (talk) 00:42, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

If photo still can be associated to an object (even if it's not the main subject of the picture but still visible), can be associated using image=* or similar. If no object can be used to make the link, then it might not have its place in OSM. However, one can still create an interactive map, using OSM tiles or data, and showing a layer with geolocated pictures. --PanierAvide (talk) 06:58, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

Multiple photos

I want to attach multiple photos to 1 feature. Specifically, photos of 1 hiking node, taken from up to 4 sides and 2 distances, so up to 8 photos.
How can I do that? Do I need to use a photo application that needs 1 url to return a series of photos, or can I enter multiple urls in the tag like image=url1, url2, url3; or numbered tags like image:1=url1; image:2=url2
If not foreseen at the moment, what would be the way to go?

Numbered tag image_1=* image_2=* ... with a default image=* might be a good solution, as semicolon might be confused as URL character --PanierAvide (talk) 19:08, 26 July 2018 (UTC)
This practice is not very appreciate in OSM


cyclestreets_id is another photo tagging system you may wish to include. It is only the id, not the full URL, so multiple id's can be entered.
