What are the tags for size of the lock ?

We could use width, length or maxwidth, maxlength. Usage show that maxwidth and maxlength are more used (see tag info). Moreover, theses tags are used by OpenSeaMap on harbors

For the height (the difference of water level from the top and the bottom basins), height, lock:height, lock_height and maxheight are used. height is more often used and simple :-)

What tags to use for contact information ?

  • phone, contact:phone, lock:phone, waterway:lock:phone ?
  • vhf, VHF, lock:VHF_channel, waterway:vhf_channel, vhf_channel, VHF_channel, VHF-channel, lock:channel, contact:vhf ?
  • website, url ?

I suggest :

Derelict locks
