Modelling a locked gate

Posted by Nachtspazz on 16 June 2011 in English (English)

Hi,

any suggestions how to model a locked gate?

I modelled it in the following way:
- I have a way.
- At the location of the gate (somewhere along the way) I create a node.
- I tag the node: barrier=gate; noexit=yes

In reality the situation is a slightly more complex, see:

"noexit=yes"? Seriously? "barrier=gate" will do. Maybe "locked=yes" or "access=no", but not "noexit".

Ok. I just realised that in my case access=private would be best.

How about "wizard=Thou Shalt Not Pass"?

I would suggest barrier=gate; access=private, presuming the gate is occasionally unlocked by the land owner. The routing agents need to realise that it is not ideal for pedestrian access, so access=no or access=private should do it.

@Pink Duck: Yes, I already modified it to "barrier=gate" and "access=private".

@b*k*: Yes, maybe. But many people would not be able to follow the discussion.

@natchspazz I'll stick with the way it's signed.
