Hi Pete
>From JOSM WMS/TMS preferences, the OpenCyclemap layer is available. It provides elevation contour lines.
If you select this layer, it should help to see in which direction the waterways flow. But not always easy to interpret.
Looking at the secondary highway at the bottom of this task highway=330089042,  it seems that this is at the top of a hill and that all waterways flow in opposite direction from this highway.

 Objet : [HOT] Waterway mapping advice needed...
Hi all, I am doing some work on http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/836.
However, I am struggling to discern the direction of the waterways in this square: http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/836#task/283
Is there any advice, tips, etc out there on how to work this out? If there is a good piece of advice or a resource to help with this, I will include it in the task instructions...
I have not done much mapping of waterways before!
