If this feature is represented by just an unclosed way, should it be defined to be low side on right side of way direction, somewhat like a natural=cliff?

One side of the quay being a body of water and the other a piece of land, orientation looks evident to me with no need for extra convention... Or am I missing cases where it might be useful ? --liotier (talk) 13:17, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

Depth tidal variation

What about other properties for a quay? I suggest:

  • low_tide_depth=* for the minimum water depth next to the quay, on low tide.
  • low_tide_height=* for the maximum height from water to quay edge, on low tide.
  • tide_difference=* Self explanatory? Is there better jargon for this?


Just wondering about the rendering (on OSM) of lines and areas tagged as "quay". So far I dont see any visual distinguish between a quay and a regular coastline. I also think a name of the quay should be visible. How do we suggest a change on how these are rendered? --Ascaaear (talk) 16:05, 7 May 2017 (UTC)
