[Edit] [Purge] Template-info.svg Template documentation

Displays a tag: key-value and (optionally) links to the corresponding wiki page.

Traditional format

Usage:

{{TagValue|key}}
{{TagValue|key|value}}
{{TagValue|key|value linked|value displayed}}
{{TagValue|key||value without link}}

If the third argument is used, the link goes to the key page.

What is typed What displays To what is linked
{{TagValue|highway|motorway}} motorway Tag:highway=motorway
{{tagValue|highway|motorway|''type of the way''}} type of the way Tag:highway=motorway
To force it to not link to the specific page, skip the second argument and put the text in the third or fourth argument like:
{{TagValue|amenity||shelter}} shelter Key:amenity#amenity-shelter
{{TagValue|bridge|||yes}} yes Key:bridge
{{TagValue|ref|||''ref number''}} ref number Key:ref

The main Key:name pages (using map features templates) need to be modified to work with this template in order to link them to anchors in these pages such as Key:name#value. For each value described, the matching row in tables listing and describing key values, and which starts with a leading line

|-

must be changed (by ionserting an identifier suitable as HTML anchors) into:

|- id="name-value"

with the name and the value separated with -, and with spaces changed into _ (note that some values containing separators such as #, , or ; cannot be anchored with valid identifiers). E.g. :

|- id="amenity-ferry_terminal"

Actually the key pages updated are:[1]

Parameter format

There is a second style with named parameters:

Wikimarkup Note Expansion Rendering

{{TagValue|link=tag|key=highway|value=motorway}},
{{TagValue|link=value|key=highway|value=motorway}}

The key-value combination has its own wiki page or redirects to the wiki page of the key. [[Tag:highway=motorway|motorway]] motorway
{{TagValue|link=key|key=highway|value=motorway}} The value is explained on the wiki page of the key, link to it. [[Key:highway|motorway]] motorway
{{TagValue|link=key#|key=amenity|value=embassy}} Links to the wiki page of the key, but adds a fragment to jump the corresponding paragraph, if an anchor has been set. [[Key:amenity#amenity-embassy|embassy]] embassy

{{TagValue|link=none|key=generator:source|value=biomass}},
{{TagValue|link=none|value=biomass}}

Do not link. Can be useful display a list of values on the key-wiki page. biomass biomass

{{TagValue|lang=ja|link=tag|key=highway|value=motorway}},
{{TagValue|lang=ja|highway|motorway}}

Links to the wiki page of the specific language. [[JA:Tag:highway=motorway|motorway]] motorway

Key value. Links automatically to appropriate wiki page.
