|Definition:||Proposal to distinguish big lakes and reservoirs from small lakes (natural=water) and sea (natural=coastline)|
This is a proposal to be able to distinguish big lakes and reservoirs from small lakes (natural=water) and sea (natural=coastline) tagged ways.
Lakes with more than 500 nodes.
How to Map
Can be rendered the same way as coastline.
There is a need to make the rendering of big lakes and reservoirs with more than 500 nodes distinguishable from small lakes (with less than 500 nodes) and seas. Especially if working with JOSM's Lakewalker to create the outline of a big lake one has to choose natural=coastline - otherwise one would have to create a natural=water with say 20.000 nodes, (which makes loading in either JOSM or potlatch very slow) - or one has to manually split the 20.000-node-lake into water-subparts which is not a very nice solution. Coastline should be only applied to seas.
