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

Hello! Could anyone tell me whether this (November 2012) discussion was ever resolved, and if so, to what (and update the wiki accordingly)?


Bottom line: I'd like to know how to properly add the information from a sign like this in the U.S. http://anationinperil.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Black-Highway-Signs-0031.jpg

I already know that the motorway_junction gets name+ref both as '40A', but that leaves the remainder, and I really can't find any clear answer from this (now 18 month old?) discussion. All of exit_to, destination, and relation:destination_sign are still at a status of 'unspecified'.

Thanks much!

The status in the sidebar in the wiki doesn't have much meaning. You can safely ignore it.

First off, the junction in the example image doesn't have a name, just a ref, so the name tag shouldn't be used.

As for the exit_to vs. destination debate, it sounds like the resolution was that there's no resolution. In the US, exit_to seems to be the tag of choice, while other parts of the world use destination. Basically, use whichever ones suits your fancy.
