0 How would you map this: It's a radar installation operated by the FAA, and a significant local landmark (to give an idea of dimensions, the ball on top measures 60 feet across on an aerial photo, stands 60-80 feet in the air, and is visible from at least 40 miles away on a good day). asked 24 Jul '16, 09:09 Carnildo 801●21●25●42 accept rate: 40% aseerel4c26 ♦ 32.3k●16●241●553

 4 I would go for something like this: building=service man_made=tower tower:type=radar tower:construction=dome height=35 source:height=estimation from side photo and aerial imagery operator=FAA seamark:type=landmark seamark:landmark:category=dome seamark:landmark:function=radar image=https://i.imgur.com/ivO9yxc.jpg (height given in metres, assumed that you mean 0.3048 metre feet. And based on a back-of-the-envelope calculation which resulted in 115 ft total height) I am not that sure about how useful the seamark stuff is, as it more or less duplicates the other tags. I think that at least if there is marine traffic in that area it might be useful to use those tags too. And if you know more technical (function) details, over there are additional tag suggestions https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:radio_transponder . answered 24 Jul '16, 09:53 aseerel4c26 ♦ 32.3k●16●241●553 accept rate: 18%
 3 Here's one example. You can use those keys and values to search taginfo, and see what other people have used. Also look at other similar things elsewhere to come up with other suggestions. answered 24 Jul '16, 09:49 SomeoneElse ♦ 33.2k●65●346●791 accept rate: 15%
