At the moment there exist:
Both for mapping the same kind of objects.
After three years of coexisting there should be finally a cleanup
A little about the history of the tags:
The proposal for man_made=measurement_station was created on 2nd April
"measurement_station" was created by German user grossing and me pushing
him a little. Since in German language a lot of stuff regarding weather
gets "gemessen" so "measured" sounded the best pick.
The tag page man_made=monitoring_station was created on 20th May 2010, ²
its evolution is explained on its talk page.
What do you think is the better matching name for the tag -
After consenting to one tag are there any voices against an automatic
unifying of the tagging, that is, changing all measurement_station to
monitoring_station or vice versa?
measurement_station: 1 766 times
monitoring_station: 2 741 times (where 1773 objects seem to come from
Either way I would for things monitored/measured stick with the tags
from monitoring_station. It is better to list them each with a single
key/value-pair instead of a semicolon separated row.
But I would not define any settings as default like is done here:
