A Wikipedia-16px.png cliff is a vertical or almost vertical natural drop in terrain topography as it occurs for example in form of coastal cliffs or escarpments. The face of the cliff usually consists of bare solid rock but can occasionally also consist of clay, compacted sand, ice or other solid materials.

How to map

Orientation example in a coastal place.

To map a cliff draw a way along the edge of the cliff and tag it natural=cliff. The direction of the way should be so that the top of the cliff is on the left side of the way direction and the bottom on the right side. If the cliff is not perfectly vertical the way should be located on the top edge. Circular cliffs like craters or escarpment outliers can be drawn as closed ways.

You can use name=* tags to name the cliff and height=* for the maximum vertical distance between top and bottom. If there is rock debris at the bottom, use natural=scree to map this.

Nodes tagged natural=cliff can be used to map rock spires.

Artificial cliffs

For artificial cliff like features man_made=embankment and barrier=retaining_wall exist as more appropriate tags.

When not to use

natural=cliff should not be used for ridges, i.e. crests where there is a significant drop in terrain to both sides and neither of them is close to vertical. Use natural=ridge or natural=arete instead. Also do not use natural=cliff just for mapping an inclined bare rock surface, use natural=bare_rock instead.
