|Tools for this tag|
A gully is a small scale land form (a few to a few tens of meters) incised into surrounding terrain through erosion by flowing water. See gully on wikipedia for more information.
Note: description in other languages give smaller maximum width recommendation. If the erosion area is large enough that it can be mapped in detail you can use natural=earth_bank instead.
How to map
Draw a way along the course of the gully from top to bottom.
This tag should not be used for:
- larger valleys or stable relief forms with no fresh signs of erosion - use natural=valley instead.
- man-made ditches - use barrier=ditch
- natural rock faces, cliffs or rocky slopes - use natural=cliff
- large steep relief edges due to larger scale erosion - use natural=earth_bank
- man-made embankments - use man_made=embankment
natural=gully is not currently rendered in the Openstreetmap-carto style. The following figure shows an example of an illustration in Maperitive:
