A barrier is a physical structure which blocks or impedes movement. The barrier tag only covers on-the-ground barriers, it does not cover waterway barriers (dams, waterfalls...).
How to map barrier nodes
Place on a highway or a barrier way or at the common node between a highway or a barrier way (if it's part of both). Do not place a barrier tag on a junction between highways.
