In some cases people may want to map pedestrian crossing
also as an area.
My proposal is to map such areas as
area:highway=crossing / area:highway=bicycle crossing,
as an optional addition to already optional area:highway mapping.
For example see
Would it be OK?
Or maybe area:highway=pedestrian_crossing would be better?
Or is it too much and something like that should not be mapped in OSM?
I am not going to say that it is always useful or the most useful
part of mapping, but in some cases it will be actually used.
In fact I actually used it in OpenStreetMap based map that was using
area:highway data - and delivered it to a school for a blind children
where it will be used. Photo of initial prototype is at
I mapped for now such areas as area:highway=crossing
I used area:highway=bicycle_crossing for bicycle-only crossing parts.
