Continents are in Map Features but not oceans. Map Features does not yet have good support for labelling marine features. This, in conjunction with place=sea, are proposals for top-level features. All oceans are already identified with this tag.


For identifying and locating the world's oceans seas Wikipedia:Ocean:

  • Arctic Ocean
  • Atlantic Ocean
  • Indian Ocean
  • Pacific Ocean
  • Southern Ocean

Proposer's Initial Comment

I have already tagged all the world's oceans with this tag. Due to changes in Query-to-map this Template does not work anymore. You can use Template:Osm-query2. Please replace or delete this use of Osm-query template. [ dead link ]
