Description

A hill of sand formed by wind, covered with no or very little vegetation. See Wikipedia-16px.png dune on Wikipedia for more information. These primarily occur in deserts or at coasts.

How to map

Dunes can be mapped either

  • as nodes, in case you know where the dune is but no details about its size and shape.
  • as a way along the dune's crest, in particular useful in larger fields of dunes where it is unclear where one dune ends and another begins.
  • as areas enclosing the area covered by the dune. If the dune occurs in a larger dune field or is surrounded by bare sand areas that are not part of this dune map the whole sand covered area as natural=sand in addition.

Mapping caveats

This tag should not be used for:

  • larger sand covered areas where dunes occur - use natural=sand instead.
  • coastal sand areas shaped by the waves - use natural=beach + surface=sand instead.
  • other sand covered areas - use natural=sand instead.
  • dunes that are mostly covered by vegetation like grass or heath and are therefore no more moving and changing shape like an active dune - use natural=heath or natural=grassland instead.

Rendering

This tag is currently not rendered in the standard style.

  • natural=sand - used for sand covered areas independent of the presence of dunes
  • natural=beach - used for beaches
  • natural=heath - used for heath, also for dunes mostly covered by heath vegetation
  • natural=grassland - for vegetation covered dunes largely covered by grass
