How to map
- name=* - name of fjord
- large fjords (such as the 179 km long 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.
|Here, the coastline is mostly used.|
|In cases where the coastline is difficult to use, use a coarse polygon.|
