Decent proposal, but currently quite specialized towards French infrastructure. I have some safety concerns about the advisability of hanging around HT equipment and the elevated likelihood of arrest when taking unauthorized notes around critical infrastructure, though. --Scruss (talk) 20:05, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi, this is a very good comment. I've completed the proposal and particularly the Where do I find such data? chapter.
All examples pictures had been took outside of HT facilities or during picture-allowed public visits.
Indicative plates zooming had been got from the outside with optics or allowed by grid operators staff.
Examples are mainly French indeed, but is there any proposal point which isn't properly world scaled? Fanfouer (talk) 20:44, 4 August 2017 (UTC)


What’s currently in the rationale section isn’t really a rationale for the proposal, it’s just a definition of terms. What’s the value of adding these tags to OSM? --Gurglypipe (talk) 08:48, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

That's right. I've add additional details about this. The main benefits are : provide a better tagging model to guide consumers if they wish to describe power transformers and improve data quality and completeness about power networks designs. Fanfouer (talk) 18:01, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
