How to tag the capacity of an elevator

Apparently, the tagging of the capacity of elevators has not been unified yet. Most language versions of the Wiki-Page highway=elevator recommend the usage of ‘capacity:person’, with the exception of the German page, which recommends ‘maxweight:persons’ instead.

The actual usage on the ground is different, these are the used combinations for highway=elevator:

  • capacity:persons: 744
  • capacity: 342
  • capacity:person: 66
  • maxweight:persons: 0 (the only object that’s using this tag is a bridge)
