Rendering in OSM

Is it possible to get barrier=kissing_gate rendered on the standard map in a similar way to barrier=gate? Fluclo (talk) 10:59, 19 June 2016 (UTC)

Resolved: it is rendered for some time Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 18:37, 9 August 2021 (UTC)

How to Map

My suggestion to clarify the images | Eteb3 (talk) 18:40, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

Simply add the tag barrier=kissing_gate to the node where the kissing gate is.
This can be placed on a node on a linear barrier; on a node on a highway; on the intersection node of a linear barrier and a highway way.
AVOID tagging highway intersections, as that does not make clear which way has the impediment.

Example (showing in JOSM editor, but the principle applies in all editors):

OK - Gate on way OK - Gate where way crosses barrier WRONG - Gate where two ways meet
On node in path (dotted green) near a junction with a highway (grey) On intersection of a path (dotted green) & wall (yellow) On intersection of a path (dotted green) & highway (grey)

Is wheelchair tag a good addition?

Would it be useful to add wheelchair=* tag to gates to note whether it is wheelchair passable? Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 18:37, 9 August 2021 (UTC)

Yep, I would. I noticed also the routers do not navigate for bicycle though them. So probably impassable by default for bicycle and maybe also wheelchairs.
Wheelchair accessible kissing gates do exist, they have a means to unlock the gate using the standard key available to disabled people (in UK formerly known as the Radar key). Some of the issues were discussed briefly 2 years ago on talk-gb. SK53 (talk) 21:31, 7 November 2021 (UTC)
