Talk:Tag:wood=broad leaved

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

I think the use of broad-leaved would be much more convenient than the current classification of wood: coniferous, deciduous or mixed, as it assumes than non coniferous trees are deciduous and that is not true. It would be more correct to use wood=coniferous/broad-leaved/mixed and type (for broad-leaved woods)=deciduous/evergreen/mixed.--Carluti 08:29, 4 March 2012 (UTC)


The tag "wood=broad_leaved" is not documented. It is undefined (inactive) for two years. It stands in contrary to the documentation of wood=*. --Rudolf (talk) 18:26, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

The wiki is for documenting usage. The tag is in use, therefore do not delete pages. The tag proposal process is entirely optional and has no standing with respect to whether a tag can be used or not. Deleting perfectly valid documentation is a pernicious activity, especially when you are assiduously promoting another tag. SK53 (talk) 10:13, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
Your behaviour is no good wiki-style.
  • I made a proposal to delete this page and started a topic at the talk-page. For this I asked the creator of the page and got his approval. But you reverted my editing without discussion.
  • I haven't deleted anything, but started a proposal to delete. Everyone is welcome to state his opinion.
  • You removed the proposal-template of this page, without affirmation. If you want to state a new tag, than start a proposal, start RFC and voting and accept the voting. At least start a discussion before and ask the proposer.
  • This page is contrary to wood=*. What is the purpose to document every misused tag in OSM?
  • The key "wood=" is deprecated

The key "wood=" is deprecated

The key wood=* is deprecated. Please consider to use the approved key leaf_type=broadleaved/needleleaved/mixed instead of wood=deciduous/coniferous/mixed. Please consider also updating the tagging of existing elements that you have mapped yourself. --Rudolf (talk) 04:28, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
