The waterway=dock tag is used to identify an enclosed area of water for ships and other craft within which the height of the water can be managed.

Caution: In North American English the term dock is also used for a pier for which the tag man_made=pier should be used.

How to Map

Draw an area or create a node at the centre of the area and tag it with waterway=dock. Optionally also add a name=*, operator=*, wikipedia=* etc. In addition the dock tag can be used to indicate the type of dock:

  • dock=tidal - For a tidal dock, where the dock holds a stable water level in a basin, in order to make loading and offloading of ships easier, or to have a safe harbour in areas with a large tidal difference.
  • dock=drydock - Usually a maintenance dock where ships can enter to do inspections and maintenance on the wet surface of the hull.
  • dock=floating - Floating docks are usually a large floating structure with the purpose to lift a vessel out of the water for maintenance or inspections of the wet surface of the hull.

Example

Dry Dock in Singapore

Barrow-in-Furness has two docks.
