A fjord is a long, narrow inlet with steep sides or cliffs, created by a glacier.

Note: Fjords can exist both in the sea and in freshwater/lakes.

How to map

Draw an area area to match shape of the bay and tag it with natural=bay. As the last resort place a node instead of an area.

Additional tags

  • name=* - name of  fjord

In detail

  • large fjords (such as the 179 km long Hardangerfjorden on Wikipedia) should be mapped as area/polygon, following the coastline along land, but using a simplified geometry.
  • smaller fjords should be mapped as area/polygon, either coinciding with the coastline or as a multipolygon using the coastline directly.
  • small fjords may be mapped using a single node, but an area is preferred.

Examples

Example fjord.png Here, the coastline is mostly used.
Reykjarfjörður
Example fjord2.png In cases where the coastline is difficult to use, use a coarse polygon.
Kvinnheradsfjorden
