A Wikipedia-16px.png spring is a locally limited area where groundwater discharges at the surface from an underground aquifer.

Springs are generally small features located in a rural or mountainous environment, but may have major importance as the headwaters of streams and rivers.

A few of them may have a man made stone structure or fountain to gather the water for drinking purpose; such spring should be tagged refitted=yes, to model these human-made modifications.

Some springs are impressive due to their high discharge, like the fontaine du Vaucluse. Especially in dry areas, springs are traditionally prominently marked on topographic maps.

Hot springs have temperatures significantly higher than the average air temperature of the surrounding region. A proposal for hot springs is under way also covering water characteristics.

How to Map

Add a node Node at the centre and tag it with natural=spring.

Use natural=water if there is a significant water pool around the spring, possibly with sport=swimming where appropriate.

Tags to use in combination

Karstic springs

A spring can be part of a karst system: its water may come from ponors or estavelles, and from several of them. If so, tag the spring also with karst=yes; that would model the spring as karstic, meaning that it throughput and the quality of its water may greatly vary. You may also want to map the relation between it and the other members of the karst system; if so, please read sinkhole=* to know how.

Proposed additions

Use water_characteristic=* to specify mineral, gas or other content if notable. This could be multivalued, but usually there is a main name giving characteristic which should the first value. See Proposed features/Hot Spring for details. Main values (please amend):

  • mineral - mineral salts
  • sulfuric
  • radon
  • mud
  • mineral, hot water, salty spring
  • intermittent or perennial
  • discharge
  • artesian well
