This tag is in use to describe the area of the riverbed together with other tags such as landcover=* or surface=*. As most rivers have fluctuating water levels this area would be typically larger than the area defined by riverbanks and encompass all areas regularly flooded and visibly formed by the river.

How to map

Most mappers draw riverbed as an area covering the complete area of the riverbed and river, while others prefer to tag only areas that are not under water.

The river (waterway=river) and riverbanks (waterway=riverbank) need to be mapped in addition to the riverbed.

The area of the riverbed may also be tagged with a suitable surface=* or landcover=* value describing the predominant appearance if/where not flooded.

Rendering

There is currently no special rendering for riverbeds. Some landcover=* and surface=* values are rendered (sand, pebbles, bare_rock, mud, shingles, scrub).

In addition the area could be rendered with blue stripes to show that it is occasionally flooded.
