Description

A steep earth bank is an abrupt change in ground level which can be clearly distinguished from its surroundings, e.g. large erosion gullies, scraps, steep grassy slopes

See Gully on Wikipedia and Erosion on Wikipedia
Warning
  • For small erosion gullies (1-2.5 meters in width and less), which are designated by a single line, use the natural=gully.
  • For man-made ditches, trenches use barrier=ditch or corresponding tags.
  • For natural bare rocky steep slope or wall use natural=cliff.
Types of earth bank

Optionally you can use one of the specifying tags:

Tag Description Photo
natural=earth_bank + earth_bank=gully large erosion gully. For a small erosion gully use natural=gully. Earth bank gully.jpg
natural=earth_bank + earth_bank=scarp scarp. Earth bank scarp.jpg
natural=earth_bank + earth_bank=сut_bank cut bank, river cliff. Earth bank cut bank.jpg
natural=earth_bank + earth_bank=grassy_steep_slope grassy steep slope, which can not be represented by SRTM or ASTER GDEM. Earth bank grassy steep slope.jpg

How to map

For a linear way, the top of the object should be on the left side of the way direction and the bottom on the right side. Way represents the top of the object. (rule is the same as for cliff and retaining_wall).

Useful combination

  • depth=* - In case of relatively constant depth it could be indicated in meters.
  • surface=* - Slope surface.
