  • tag:natural=coastline
Status: unspecified

This tag is meant to show a coastline where survey data is of a bad quality, low, plain wrong, or from an extremely unreliable source.

This tag allows renderers to differ between survey quality in accordance with INT 1 symbols C1 and C2.

This tag requires the line to be tagged natural=coastline and will in no way replace that tag, if survey quality is of less importance, a renderer will most likely omit reading this tag all together.
