Intermittent river
Status: Approved (active)
Proposed by: Lzhl
Tagging: intermittent=yes
Applies to: way
Definition: For intermittent streams and rivers
Rendered as: blue dashed (or alternating dots and dashes) line
Drafted on: 2009-11-10
RFC start: 2009-11-10
Vote start: 2011-01-20
Vote end: 2011-02-05

Rationale

A lot of small streams and streams in deserts (sometimes called arroyos) do not have a permanent flow. Wikipedia (DE: Wadi)

Tagging

intermittent=yes

Example:

waterway=river
name=Giona
intermittent=yes

Rendering

Proposed rendering for intermittent streams: a line of alternating dots and dashes, like what is used by the USGS (US Geological Survey)

If using a dashed line, the renderer should be sure to differentiate from tunnels, especially since portions of an intermittent stream can be tunneled.
