Wikidata

A ford to cross a waterway with stepping stones.

How to Map

  • use a single node ford where a highway crosses a waterway that is mapped as linear stream without riverbanks
  • use the way-method for larger streams with mapped riverbanks

On a node node

The stream and highways should share a node where they cross marked with ford=stepping_stones.

On a way way

The highway should share nodes with the riverbanks where it crosses them and also a node with the waterway=stream where they cross. Split the highway between the riverbanks and apply ford=stepping_stones to this segment .

Surface

If surface=* is untagged then it may be useful to assume surface=stone/surface=rock. Note that other surfaces are also possible and that surface=stone is not documented.
