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


I am a very new user, and was wondering how we could see power lines (under 132kV) over the UK. Is there a filter somewhere?

Many thanks!

Try with overpass-turbo (example here).

Power lines may not have their voltage mapped, so you may need a mix of terms:

  • power=minor_line : should be 11k or possibly 33k, but may include lower volatages.
  • power=line with voltage= (valid values under 132 Kv)
  • power=line with only one wire per cable.

See the wiki for the likely values for these tags.

There is also the Power Grid Map from flosm.de but minor power lines are also shown on osm.org
