Conditions in other countries or on other continents

This article is a rough translation of a german concept. Maybe some people from the US or somewhere else could give some details about caves in their country (like protection of bats, i guess that's more typical for Germany/Europe). Kerosin 13:08, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Underwater caves

I've added to the map the entrance of a cave which is one of the most famous cave-diving spots in France (see it on OSM: [1]). The particular thing about this cave is that its entrance is in the bottom of a river. I could not find any appropriated tag for flagging that. Any ideas? Vitor1234 18:01, 22 September 2012 (BST)

In view of the riverbank, layer=-1 implies that the cave entrance is under water. --Fkv 19:57, 22 September 2012 (BST)

Cave extent/indoor mapping

I have described current usage but consider it very lacking.. it is a shame that we have a proposal for lava tubes but not normal caves. Obviously no variant of tunnel is well suited for caves, the biggest problems that I see

  • can be used only in conjunction some water/highway
  • no mapping of extent
  • can't be applied to nodes

Same applies for cave=yes. Time for a proposal? RicoZ (talk) 11:24, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
