For some types of cabinet there’s already tags available, e.g.:


Traffic counter:

man_made=monitoring_station + monitoring:traffic=*


Air quality monitoring:

man_made=monitoring_station + monitoring:air_quality=*

Well, the proposal has been created and hosted on this page :

It's obviously a draft yet, many elements are missing.

I will ask @tagging a few more additional tags.

Thank you for your feedbacks and feel free to use Talk page.

For electricity, we do have power=cable_distribution_cabinet but IMHO it's
definitely to specific.
It would be replaced by man_made=street_cabinet +
street_cabinet=power_distribution (+ operator=* + ref=* if applicable)

Sounds a very reasonable expansion allowing finer detail to be recorded.


And obviously there are traffic control, road lights and all other public

Certainly traffic lights have similar street furniture ...


In France, we have kind of postal boxes where a postal service employee deposits
letters as for allowing a second person to distribute them later.

We have the same thing in the UK as well ...

This should probably be in the tagging list ... but I'm probably not alone in not having even joined that :)
