# How can I map a reversed cone water tower?

 0 It's possible to map correctly this water tower? The column should have a `height` tag, the reverse cone tank should have `min_height` and `height`, but what about the cone shape? asked 02 Jul '14, 09:09 NonnEmilia 136●3●4●11 accept rate: 0% 2 After I posted the question on the OSM forum a discussion started.

 3 There is no commonly accepted way to map reversed cone shapes yet. However, it's a good thing that you asked the question in the 3D forum – perhaps we can discuss and find a solution there. answered 03 Jul '14, 10:24 Tordanik 11.9k●14●105●147 accept rate: 35% 1 I've posted the question on the forum yesterday, I'm waiting for an answer.

 -1 Hi NonnEmilia, map what you can see (from above), the outer rim of the cone shaped water tank. Use Bing to get the right diameter and move it to the right spot corresponding to the ground level. The arial is causing a wrong image, look for instance at some large or tall building in the area, the top (roof) and basement mostly don’t match. answered 02 Jul '14, 11:11 Hendrikklaas 9.3k●198●236●384 accept rate: 5% 2 But I can "see" all of it because yesterday the operator (IREN Emilia) opened the entire facility to the public and spoke to everybody about the building construction and its dimensions. (02 Jul '14, 11:23) NonnEmilia If so, you even might be able to get the right size of the cone. But keep in mind the cone covers the tall pillar completedly. Consider a building with a underground parking lot. Do you map the outside of the building or even the underground walls and use 3D ? Please read these lines as well http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Building (02 Jul '14, 11:46) Hendrikklaas 3 NonnEmilia, sounds like the Openstreetmap 3D group over on the http://forum.openstreetmap.org may be just what is required. It is impressive to see some of the things they map and I'm sure they would drool over such form. :) (02 Jul '14, 12:30) nevw
