Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


I made a scan of the Wiki, but didn’t find key nor value to add the make of a bridge any idea ? And if I’m right shouldn’t there be a possibility to add the material of the bridge to this subject ? There for instance bridges of cast iron with rivets, steel, fiber, stone and wood IMHO, be sure to ad one if I left one out. Should we ad these options to the menu ?

See http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/?key=bridge#combinations The key material is used 534 times with the bridge key. Or bridge:material / building:material (if a bridge should be regarded as a building ...). The key material is common at benches: http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/amenity=bench#combinations

for bridge types you can choose from one of the bridge key values already in use: http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/?key=bridge#values .

Dear Gormo, thanks but that’s not the question. I didn’t ask for the type of bridge, but I’m searching a tag for the material of the bridge ! FI a wooden, stone or iron bridge and even a wooden bridge could be a drawbridge or a basculebridge etc. It could be my text or understanding of eb[English that made this problem arise
