Webcams are cameras where the feed is publicly available

How to Map

Set a node at the location of the camera. Tag it with man_made=surveillance and surveillance=webcam and the URL of the stream as contact:webcam=*.

Tags to use in combination

required tags:


  • camera:type=fixed/panning/dome - What type of camera it is fixed, panning or a dome camera
  • name=* - The name of the webcam
  • camera:direction=* - The direction the webcam in pointing in


Possible tagging mistakes

Sometimes the website=* or url=* is used for the URL of the webcam. While this is not wrong, it is not the most used key.
