|Definition:||Large bodies of marine water|
Map Features does not yet have good support for labelling marine features. This, in conjunction with place=ocean, are proposals for top-level features. Most marine seas are already identified with this tag.
For identifying and locating large bodies of marine water: seas Wikipedia:Sea, gulfs Wikipedia:Gulf, bights Wikipedia:Bight and very, very large bays such as the Bay of Biscay.
Can be used in conjunction with these tags (not part of the proposal):
Proposer's Initial Comment
I have already tagged most of the world's seas with this tag.
I am not sure whether it is also a good idea to use this for inland seas such as Aral Sea as natural=water (i.e. a lake) could also be used. I would appreciate comments. MikeCollinson 12:30, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
