A sea mark is a pilotage aid which identifies the approximate position of a maritime channel, hazard and administrative area to allow boats, ships and seaplanes to navigate safely.
There are three types of sea mark:
- beacons - fixed to the seabed
- buoys - consisting of a floating object that is usually anchored to a specific location on the bottom of the sea or to a submerged object
- A type of cairn built on a submerged rock/object, especially in calmer waters.
These marks are essential to water navigation.
How to Map
|Add a node where marker is located. Add the sea_mark=* key to it.
Add sub tag* to further define: day_beacon, night_beacon, bouy, cardinal_mark, lateral_mark.
We have to discuss all tags together: day beacon, buoy, beacon, lighthouse.
