Hello

I'm writing master thesis about high water marks in Cracow in Poland.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_water_mark I have to put high water
marks to OSM.

What tags i should i use? In taginfo i only found one tag: flood_marker. It
is used only once. But term "flood mark" is not correct. It should by
called "high water mark", because this term is in International Glossary of
Hydrology.

My propositions discussed in OSM/PL forum:

Main:
high_water_mark=yes
flood_marker=yes

Location:
location=
=indoor (inside the building)
=outdoor (outside the building)
=wall (in the wall)

Mark height from the ground/floor:
height_water:height= [m]

Flood date:
flood_date=

Inscription in the mark (or part):
inscription=

History:
memorial:type= high_water_mark
memorial:type=plaque
historic=highwater_mark

Tourism:
tourism=attraction

How to describe whether it is left or the right bank of the river?
Can I use riverbank=left/right?
Or better will be riverbank:side=left/right?

Water mile https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_mile is waterway:kilometer?

How to describe distance from the river?

Can you help me?

All the best.
