> This is good feedback, and I would potentially toss another into the mix:
hazard=erosion which has about 300 tags. Do we think these four tags
(rock_slide, falling_rocks, landslide, erosion) represent four distinct and
separate things that are properly tagged separately? I can see erosion
being "the ground may fall from under you at the cliff's edge" but the
others sounded like "the ground may fall from above".
The signs that I have found for landslide look exactly the same,
pictorally, as falling rocks, although I have found some with the actual
words "landslide". It would be helpful someone can offer this flat-lander
examples where there are clear signage differences between these, or offer
clear definition differences between these values - especially if we go in
the direction of tagging unsigned hazards also.
