Only the design outline has thus far been discussed. In summary, any 
feature tagged as a port, harbour, marina or anchorage will have the 
relevant symbol rendered on the OpenSeaMap Seamark layer. The renderer 
will communicate the co-ordinates of this symbol to a separate database 
which will overlay an invisible button over that position in the 
OpenSeaMap Harbour layer. A right-click on the symbol will then invoke a 
pop-up panel that will display the meta-data. The Harbour layer database 
will have extracted the metadata form divers public database sources, 
including the OSM tags on any feature that invoked the Seamark layer 
symbol. This metadata would include LOCODEs where available.
