Some comments on Proposed features/cliff clarification request a dedicated tag for rock spires. So here it is. Feel free to take over this proposal if you want to speed it up.
A rock spire is an upright, needle-shaped rock, formed by the erosion of surrounding rock material. In some cases, the spire itself is protected by an uplying boulder. A spire can also be a remainder of the walls of a collapsed cave.
Most rock spires have a diameter of up to a few meters. Therefore, mapping them as nodes should normally be sufficient. However, it is possible to micro-map them as areas.
Use this tag only for rocks whose height is a multiple of the longest horizontal diameter.
One common and simple symbol is an upright isosceles triangle.
- name=* The name of the spire.
- ele=* The elevation of its peak.
- height=* The relative height of the spire.
- diameter=* The diameter at ground level. Maybe useful when mapped as a node.
- natural=rock for notable rocks with other shapes.
- natural=cliff for vertical edges.
- natural=bare_rock for rock surface.
- man_made=tower, building=tower, man_made=mast or man_made=obelisk for artificial spires.
