Use waterway=ditch for simple narrow artificial waterways used to drain nearby land, to remove storm-water or similar. Ditches are usually straight (as opposed to natural streams). They may contain little water or even be dry most of the year - to mark this intermittent=yes may be used.

For larger artificial waterways used for the drainage purposes, and typically lined with concrete or similar, see waterway=drain. For natural minor waterways use waterway=stream. For dry ditch used to prevent access to the other side, consider using barrier=ditch.

How to map

See also: Waterways

Create a simple linear way, in the direction of flow if this is clear, and add waterway=ditch.

If the ditch is used for irrigation, the usage of irrigation=yes is proposed.
