A body of canal. Should contain waterway=canal way inside.

How to Map

Draw the outline area of the canal and add natural=water + water=canal.

If the canal is very long, it must be divided into several segments and put together with a multipoygon.

In addition a way way tagged as waterway=canal, must be drawn in the direction of the canal flow.

Old scheme

The area of the canal is tagged with waterway=riverbank
