Description

An area of bare rock is sparsely vegetated or not vegetated at all, so that the solid bedrock becomes visible.

Areas to tag could be

  • high altitude mountain areas where the rock lays bare, like summits, aretes and rock faces, but not scree, shingle or moraines.
  • rocky coasts
  • rocky areas in uplands, desert and polar regions
  • outcrops like open pit mines or road cuts
  • monolithic mountains like Uluru (Ayers Rock).

How to map

ElementArea.png

To map an area of bare rock you can just draw a line closing on itself, marking the area as bare rock. To map larger or more complex areas you can use Relation:multipolygon with the same tag.
