Hi all,

the wiki documents

amenity=weighbridge  (taginfo reports 386 uses)



Tag:amenity=weighbridge - OpenStreetMap Wiki
A Truck scale (US), weighbridge (non-US) or railroad scale is a large set of scales, usually mounted permanently on a concrete foundation, that is used to weigh ...

Besides several different spellings like

amenity=weigh_bridge (8), weightbridge (3) ,...

and other similar tags like

amenity=weigh_station (21)


I've found several nodes or ways tagged e.g.

highway=weigh_station (60)

highway=weighbridge (9)

man_made=weighbridge (44)

man_made=weigh_bridge (6)

man_made=weighing_scale (4)

man_made=weighting_machine (1)

and further spelling variatons.

weight_sensor=yes (1)

weight_bridge (1)

I guess most of them describe the same thing.

It would be great to have a tool which allows to contact

all mappers that used the different versions and ask

them to  check if the most often used tag is matching.

Do we have a tool like that ? If not, would it be welcomed?
