Status: In use

Use man_made=breakwater to identify man-made structures designed to protect a harbour or section of shore from the sea and waves, often to protect boats in a harbour from the effects of high waves. These may be built using loose large natural boulders, concrete tetrapods, demolition debris or as a solid concrete structure or solid stone structure. They are commonly large enough to have a flat top and may carry a publicly accessible highway=footway or track.

Take care not to confuse these with with man_made=groyne, which are commonly thin structures that are meant to stop loose materials (eg sand) being washed away or moved along the shore or man_made=piers, which are commonly platforms that extend out over water by use of pillars, or by floating primarily used for people to access boats or similar.

How to map

See also: Coastline

For narrow breakwaters use a linear way with man_made=breakwater. For wider breakwaters create a closed area tagged similarly. Breakwaters may also carry man_made=lighthouses or navigation lights. If there is a path along it use highway=footway or similar. If there is a wall along one side of a wider breakwater tag it with barrier=wall. Use mooring=* if boats can tie up alongside and highway=steps for steps leading down to the water.
