crossing how to tag (street)


some questions regarding crossing.

  • where to tag crossing, on the way crossing the street or the street which is beeing crossed?

  • how to tag, is it a way (for example if it crosses two streets/lanes) or is it just the node where the crossing starts?

Thanks for your help

Neither. It’s tagged on the node that is shared by the two ways.

In rare cases or with very detailled mapping (separtely mapped sidewalks etc.), it might make sense to tag a way as a crossing. But that’s not fully explored yet and is not standard practice - crossing=* is only defined for nodes and almost exclusively used on nodes.


thanks for the clarification.
