But what does "a bit much" mean in relation to mapping what you find on
the ground? Either a thing is there or it isn't. You can leave it out,
or make a reasonable stab at drawing what you actually see in front of
For example I have just been updating a local ford well-known to me,
over the River Rea at Neen Savage:
That section of the river is mapped as an area, so I have added an area
of it as landuse=ford where it is also an area of road.
I have been mapping local waterways as areas, where both banks are shown
as such on OS OpenData. It is a tedious process because river banks are
usually so wiggly. So I do a bit at a time as my time permits.
Which raises another question -- what is the correct temporary tagging
for "this is where I've got to, I will come back and do some more soon,
I know it's not finished"?
