Tag values

Tag values usually are lowercase without spaces. So crane:type=Portal crane should not be used. Instead crane:type=portal_crane is an OSM compliant tagging. The same for crane:mobile=Rail should be crane:mobile=rail. If noone vetos I will change that. --WanMil 09:41, 25 September 2012 (BST)

TODO types


Container crane, Gantry crane, Travellift, Slewing pillar crane, Floor-mounted crane, Portal crane, portal, travel lift, portal_crane, slewing_pillar_crane, Truck-mounted crane, Portalkran, Travel Lift, travellift, floor-mounted crane, portal crane, Saulendrehkran, saulendrehkran, gantry, travel_lift, gantry_crane, crane, rail, slewing pillar crane

So, I think this is list of common types: bulk-handling, container, deck, floor-mounted, gantry, hammerhead, hoist, jib, level_luffing, overhead, portal, rail, saulendrehkran, self-erecting, slewing_pillar, tower, travel_lift, winch

I dont know about "-" "_" and " " so I left "-" and chance " " to "_" --- User:Kr12 18:59, 28 May 2013

Mapping of crane rails

How should we tag the rail of the cranes? For example, ways and currently have no tags, and they seem to represent rails for cranes. Zstadler (talk) 14:27, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

Revisiting this issue after a few years... At the time I invented a man_made=rail tag for these, but that wasn't liked by the person who mapped that industrial complex and after some discussion then the original (but in my opinion still wrong) railway=rail tags were restored, and it still has railway=rail tags on there today
We really need something for this, it's displayed and seen as proper railway tracks now (even more prominently as the actual railway tracks going through that complex) and I don't think that should happen... --Eimai (talk) 08:10, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
I totally agree with the above. I added some gantry cranes at DeltaPort e.g. (Way: 503678145) with the tags "man_made:crane" and "type:gantry_rail". However, they do not display on OSM, and it would be decent if they would with a noticeably weighted line style and colour, different from rail lines. It would also be preferable if the two rails were combined on the same way, if possible.
I checked in the big ports of Longbeach and Singapore, and there does not seem to be any acceptable solution there.

@Zstadler @Eimai @Badenk Need a solution for special use tracks such as for launch pedestals for rockets and mobile service buildings in a spaceport. For example: and Ohsin (talk) 00:21, 22 December 2017 (UTC)

What is a travel_lift?

When looking up travel lifts, I find pictures of cranes on wheels that can drive about. I would think that we can't map those, so what is meant with "crane:type=travel_lift"? —M!dgard [ talk ] 20:05, 19 November 2017 (UTC) I looked up travel lifts and I have used similar vehicles - they are often used to lift a boat or small ship out of the water at a special dock at a marina or boatyard. Similar vehicles also carry containers around container ports. There may be other uses. I have a view that a travel lift used to lift boats from the water should be mapped at the point where the lift out of the water actually occurs - the lifting dock, but not the container port vehicle. --TonyS (talk) 23:34, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Crane rails

If the crane is on rails, add this tag to crane rails.

We can not just reduce cranes to the rails. It is better to draw the area of the crane with a rectangle and add the tags. An example is here. There are even 6 cranes running on the same tracks. It is then better to divide the area to represent the number of cranes.

I would change the wiki page so that cranes are tagged only on nodes or areas, not on simple ones. Is that OK?--geozeisig (talk) 13:58, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

Good point. I fully agree. Tomasz W (talk) 07:20, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
I did an update. Take a look at that, especially the English.--geozeisig (talk) 10:42, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
I think that rails should be treated as a separate thing than a crane, because rails without a crane won't lift anything. So I would go with linear railway=crane or railway=yes for rails and separate node/ area with man_made=crane tag for certain cranes. Tomasz W (talk) 11:14, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

I have wondered how to map such cranes - they can be very large and visible from 25km distance. I like the area denoting the area travelled by the crane(s); I think that the quantity of cranes operating in that area needs to be tagged - and each crane may be different in its capacities; I think that they should be clearly rendered on the standard map. Changing the description of the wiki from stationary to limited mobility may be helpful. --TonyS (talk) 23:34, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

@Tomasz W ...and draw a separate way way through the rails. How exactly is that meant? Can you give an example? --geozeisig (talk) 08:39, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
