Reef (natural=reef?)

How should a reef be tagged.  natural=reef seems obvious, but I do not think it is defined.  I had a look at the Great barrier Reef, but that is not mapped yet. No doubt there are other marine features that could do with their own tags.  natural=sandbank for example (Goodwin Sands etc).

Re: Reef (natural=reef?)

If natural=reef seems like natural tagging for that feature, you can just start to use it.

For best chances of adoption by other people, you can make a proposal on the wiki, or be otherwise vocal about it.

I did manage to find a proposal for sub_sea=reef, but that does not appear to have made any progress.  natural=reef is also mentioned in that.  I will look at making a proposal for natural=reef.

Re: Reef (natural=reef?)

natural=reef sounds like a very sensible tag so I doubt you'll have too much opposition to it. Regardless you can and should start using the tag right away.
