Ideas for OSM & OpenSeaMap.


Leaving out the most detailed tags, the first question to be solved is how to tag port areas.

IHO definition of port: A place provided with terminal and transfer facilities for loading and discharging cargo or passengers, usually located in a harbour.

A first draft proposal could be

port:facility=passenger_terminal, oil_terminal, cargo_wharf,..
port:category=container, RoRo,.. and should be used only on the total harbour if it's a specialized one (no other port types in the same harbour)

This excludes well established tags like waterway=dock or leisure=marina
