A tidal flat, or mudflat, is a tidally inundated area of bare mud, sand or similar sediments.

How to map

Draw the outline area of the area and tag it with natural=wetland + wetland=tidalflat.

The area will be located generally outside the coastline.

  • surface=* may be added to specify the surface material: sand, mud, etc.
