Re: Natural harbour

Either a node in the middle of the bay, or an area made up of the surrounding coastline and closed by a single segment joining the outermost nodes at the mouth. The tags "natural=bay" and "name=*" should be applied for correct rendering in the base map.

"seamark" tags can also be applied if the bay is actually used for mooring. If this is just customary mooring, then "seamark:type=anchorage" can be used (1). If the mooring is controlled by a harbour authority, then "seamark:type=harbour" would be appropriate (2).

Re: Natural harbour

OK, thx quick reply.

In the artipelago in Stockholm Sweden we have a lot of island with places recommended for anchorage. Described in different books where you could get close by with boat. These places I want to map in some way. They are not printer in official sea charts like anchorages are.
