A large (whatever that might mean) natural boulder or rock fragment that is not attached to the underlying terrain and arrived in its position by natural means, such as weathering, flooding or glaciation.

A glacial erratic is a piece of rock that differs from the size and type of rock native to the area in which it rests (from Glacial erratic on Wikipedia) carried there by glaciation.

Not appropriate for boulder fields and similar regions comprised entirely of large rock fragments, which may be better described as natural=scree.

How to map

Mark the rock with a node and natural=stone (if stone is relatively big, you can put tag natural=stone to its outline).

To describe it further use the following additional tags:

  • name=* to tag the name of the stone. I.e. "Doane Rock" in Eastham, Massachusetts.
  • protected=yes - to tag cultural heritage management.
  • website=* the url of a site with specific information to this rock.
  • width=n - to tag that the stone has width of n meters
  • height=m - to tag that the stone has height of m meters
