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

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)
