Updated the area of Matosinhos, Portugal.
Created the area of the Farol and the industrial area of Petrogal Petrochemical site. Add two gasometer and 5 smoking towers. My objective is to create a series of reference sites for VFR flight. I realize that I need to further develop my skills with blender and participate also in the openscenery projecto in order that key objects are recognized by X-VFR.

Location: Le├ža da Palmeira, Matosinhos, Portugal

I noticed that your added towers doesn't have any tags... You should tag them at least as building=yes.

There's a proposed feature man_made=tower with optional tags (e.g. height):

Hi Zartbitter.
The height was specified for all towers I have defined. I have introduced the vaule in the appropriate field when I used the JOSM present TOWER.
Should I edit myself every relevant TAG or should I use the prebuild presets of JOSM?
Thanks for the reply.

By the way I use the item tower as replacement for something close to a chimney, as I could define an height. Could you please comment, as correct choice?

JOSM now is very good with its predefined tag sets. But sometimes I'm using attributes which are not (yet?) in these sets. Just do it the way you think it is correct ;-)
