tags for a rain gauge

Warin
Hi
What tags would you suggest for a rain gauge?

Of 5 with the 'name', only one has tags
  • man_made=monitoring_station
  • monitoring:weather=yes
  • name=Rain Gauge
  • recording:automated=yes
Arr there is on the wiki a list and that has
weather:ombrometer=yes .. I have add that ombrometer is commonly called a rain gauge. 
I think a wiki redirect for rain gauge will help...
So tags for a rain gauge are;
man_made=monitoring_station
monitoring:weather=yes
weather:ombrometer=yes
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:monitoring:weather#Precipitation

Note. I'd much rather use weather:rain_gauge=yes. 
Thoughts?

I agree. The Oxford English Dictionary tags ombrometer as 'Now rare'.

I'll second that. Rain gauge is already more common https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/search?q=weather%3A
