cleanup monitoring_station/measurement_station

Posted by malenki on 7 November 2013 in English (English)

Maybe mentioning it here I will reach some people who still haven't read about it:
After 3,5 years coexistence of the two tags mentioned in the subject it is time for a cleanup.

At ¹ you find the latest, revised proposal. After 3,5 years there is no need for RFC, the voting is open.

To complete the cleanup there is a mechanical edit needed to change objects tagged with measurement_station to monitoring_station. Details for this edit you find at ².
Objections and opinions you can voice at the respectively talk pages, at the the mailing list (announcement) or here.

Seems generally sensible to me.

The proposal itself mentions amenity=clock, so one observation is why use display:analog=* instead of display=analog (and of course likewise for a digital display)?

NB for a clock the display is always implicitly at least yes, otherwise why map the clock at all :)

Is it a precedent already set that should be followed?

It is possible that there are both analog and digital displays are used. The one example I found so far is this clock in russia.

Similarly one could ask why I propose the use of
recording:manually=*
recording:automated=*
instead of recording=manually/automated.

PS: There is also a station tagged with both manually and automated recording: http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/125685956

Oh dear, I should get some sleep. ;)
Forget the PS.
