A, or a cascade. A place where water flows over a vertical drop or a series of drops in the course of a stream or river.
How to map
Draw a node on a river or stream and add waterway=waterfall.
Note that some mappers have used waterway=waterfall on a way to represent the edge over which the water flows (across the flow) while others have used the tag to represent the vertical extent of the cascade (along the flow). Therefore, the semantics of usage on a way are unclear.
