Part of the Tips especially for Aussies, this page gives some tips for mapping areas of land use and natural areas in Australia. See Land use and areas of natural land for more general information.


  • Within cities, mark reserves with trees as natural=wood
  • In rural areas this is not so useful to navigation, but marking State Forests and National parks is useful.


  • Using landuse=residential for an area makes it render as area shading
  • abutters=residential only shades on the edge of a line and is now less favoured.
