How to map

ElementArea.png

To map a reef you can just draw a line closing on itself, marking the area area of the reef and tag it natural=reef. To map larger or ring shaped reefs you can use Relation:multipolygon with the same tag.

If you do not know exact area of the reef you can map it as a way way.

If known you can add the following tags:

  • name=* for the name of the reef
  • reef=* to specify the type of reef, for example reef=coral
