Parts of ships
Tag historic=ship can be used for anchors or other parts of historic ships?
Modern or ancient frigate
How to tag theses frigates ?
The rendering support for (historic) ships tagged according to the recommendations in the wiki is quite poor.
- In a river: None of the featured layers on osm.org show the ships. Examples:
- In the sea, Mapnik is the only layer where ships appear (but in a quite ugly colour). Example:
- Surrounded by natural=water: this seems to be the only case where all the layers actually show the ships. Example:
- The ships in Gothenburg are now rendered (with a colour like unmapped ground), maybe after the last update to openstreetmap-carto?. --Erik Lundin (talk) 10:12, 29 March 2015 (UTC) (Seem to render only historic=citywalls --Pyrog (talk) 14:16, 13 December 2017 (UTC))
They are visible on Historic place map as an overlay.
They also rendered on some layers on ground :
But some could use:
Commissioning and decommissioning date
I suggest to use start_date=* and end_date=*.
end_date=* could be the sunk date for a wreck and decommissing date for a ship.
