What about the opposite where a road etc is dug down, or rock blasted away to make a sort of narrow man-made valley ? MortenLange (talk) 21:51, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Yup, thanks. I saw that some minutes later and thought I indicated it here, but somehow that edit failed :-) MortenLange (talk) 14:23, 8 November 2016 (UTC)


Shouldn't man_made=embankment be valid also for areas (Mf area.svg)? --NonnEmilia (talk) 09:10, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

The short answer is NO --geozeisig (talk) 06:11, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
LoL. Where I can read about a long answer?
The question is: how can we tag a wide and complex embankment/levee (with many levels and a lot of different features on it like roads, paths, cycleways, benchs, ...)?
I'm talking about the complex levee system (riverbanks for flood control) along the Po river[1]. --NonnEmilia (talk) 07:59, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
Use man_made=embankment on a way where the cliff is. It is not so good to use a closeway because it will not be rendert. My be an examble is here --geozeisig (talk) 10:39, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
Now it's rendered. See for example. I still fail to see why it can't be used on areas. --naoliv (talk) 18:46, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
Maybe you have to check the right direction.--geozeisig (talk) 07:34, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
"Maybe you have to check the right directio" - I do not understand at all what you posted Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 09:45, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
We have clockwise ways and anti-clockwise ways They are both closed and rendered. We also have +6000 closed ways with embankment=yes or man_mane=embankment and I still fail to see any valid reason to disallow the usage on closed ways. --naoliv (talk) 10:54, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
In my interpretation is a line, just closed one Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 09:45, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
Makes sense, indeed --naoliv (talk) 11:06, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
