Tagging

All tagging tries to conform with the OpenSeaMap scheme

Ireland uses the IALA-A scheme for marks. The Shannon uses Red / Black marks as Port / Starboard channel marks, but these are being changed to the IALA-A scheme which is Red / Green.

All marks will be tagged using the IALA-A scheme.

A great list of required IHO symbols can be found here.

Also using the OSM defaults.

Harbour

Using the OSM defaults.

Issues

  • Currently using route=ferry to mark the navigable channel, or recommended track.
  • Don't know what tag to use for 'End of Navigation'
  • Not sure what is best way to mark bridges for navigation
  • Inland markers don't easily conform to IALA shapes...
  • Weir & Lock gates aren't showing up on map for Athlone?
