what tag to use?
i can see pages with high water mark or flood mark tag with good combination tag to use but not on this page. We need to find what tag to use. -Yod4z (talk) 17:13, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
- Do you mean flood_mark=* (216 uses) and high_water_mark=* (20 uses)? I like more historic=highwater_mark (38 uses) as it is in historic namespace. But the docs here would need to be improved, which I can do, if we decide to prefer this tag. Chrabros (talk) 02:41, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
- Regarding value (term) I prefer
flood_mark as simpler, shorter and easier to understand for non-hydrologists. We have started also with
high_water_mark, but found this term ambiguous. High-water mark is more popular in US, while flood mark in EU (http://floodlist.com/dealing-with-floods/flood-high-water-marks).
- Agree, historic namespace is better. But we can't mix historic=flood_mark with memorial:type=*, as it requires historic=memorial. So I propose to duplicate selected memorial:type=*, and create flood_mark:type=* with additional values, like
painted for painted directly (on walls, ...).
- Deprecated OSM wiki pages should be deleted or just redirected? We have ongoing flood project, so after final agreement can work on that. --Cracert (talk) 11:10, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
- maybe add info like on page amenity=fire_hydrant to page to don't use anymore. I like the name flood mark, it's clear and comprehensive in any language --Yod4z (talk) 16:50, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
