[Tagging] tower:type=suspension

I was more thinking about the possibility of mapping above ground phone/data cables. Not sure if any of them are strung on what could be considered a “tower” or if it’s always a “pole”…


So while there currently is primarily a power=tower + tower:type=*


I could see something like telecom=tower + tower:type=* also showing up at some point.


And to keep the possibility open that other types of “towers that hold cables up” are defined in the future, I don’t think tower:type=suspension should automatically imply power=tower if not explicitly tagged as such.

Not in any way involved with power mapping, but I don’t think tower:type should have necessarily any implications about what it is that’s being transmitted over the suspended cables.


I agree, in principle any power:type may be use to transmit any type of power (or not be used at all).
