Status: approvedPage for proposal


Should be used to mark a place for scuba diving, combined with a physical feature. It may be leisure=sports_centre, natural=beach, natural=stone, natural=cliff or a fitting segment of a coastline or lake.

To distinguish between a dive spot and other scuba_diving related things you can add the tag scuba_diving:divespot=yes (yes or a description of the type of spot, see below).

For dive bases or dive shops see: amenity=dive_centre or shop=scuba_diving.

For scuba diving clubs club=scuba_diving can be used.

Rendering on OpenSeaMap

Scuba diving navy.svg

OpenSeaMap is rendering scuba-diving-spots, but is currently not working properly as of 19th of March 2017.
Select "Sport layer"
sport=scuba_diving is rendered in z=14..18

Example in the Chart

For a transition time also "sport=diving" is rendered. Please search this deprecated tag and replace it by sport=scuba_diving.
220 old "diving" need to be replaced (29.1.2014)
18 old "diving" need to be checked and replaced (11.10.2014)

In the meantime, a new chart is under development, that you can use to verify scuba-diving-spots, http://aaxee.github.io/online_chart_ol3/. You can see an example dive site from Mimpang, Bali: http://aaxee.github.io/online_chart_ol3/#/?lat=-8.5262&lon=115.5762&zoom=18&layers=C10010010000&lang=en
