Hi,

I was told of the utility=* key when discussing about a connex topic.
http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/utility#values

Some of the values associated with this particular key should (don't have
to but should) be replaced by more common and approved tags.

Here is some items. Don't do mass edit but look carefully to each object.
utility=pole => power=pole (or power=tower) - Only if the pole carries
power lines.
utility=power_sub_station => power=substation
utility=electric => power=* - We have to choose the value which best match
the need.
utility=electricity => power=* - Idem
utility=power => power=* - Idem
utility=power_station => power=substation or power=plant - Depends of what
is it actually, a plant or a substation ?

Have a look to power map features

Feel free to let us know if you mind this replacement.


Cheers.
