I wounder how to map a diving platform/tower. Such as those located outside at/on top of man_made pier at a beach

I was rather surprised to not find anything related to this subjects as I think it would be great to be able to add these to the map. They are rather common on bigger bathing/swimming locations here in sweden.

Any suggestions?

Brgds, Johannes

Hi: I would use these tags: man_made=tower


although there is no 'official' tag 'diving_platform' you can create your own as it describes the structure quite accurately

or only: man_made=diving_platform
