URL Shortening

Two Nature Reserves that I have mapped have links to descriptive web pages in their tags. The URLs have changed and are now too long for the tag field.

Does OSM have a built in URL shortener? If not, is one particular service preferred?

Only for the map view we have short URLs.


Is the tag-value really limited?

In JOSM I can put a very long string in there.

I don’t think it’s a good idea to use shortened URLs in tags.

I agree that shortened URLs are not a good idea if they can be avoided.

I am using also using JOSM so will try again in case it was operator error!
