Showing inland navigation information from OpenStreetMap.

Tagging logic

  • Large vessels including commercial Eurovessels are coded using cemt=* values of IV, Va, Vb, V1a, V1b, V1c, VII. Also deep_draft=*
  • Motorboats allowed, (motorboat=yes/permissive/designated).
  • Non-powered boats using boat=yes/permissive/designated with motorboat=no
  • No craft allowed (boat=no).
  • Rivers without any relevant tags are marked as unknown.

It is assumed that streams are not navigable.


Based on information currently available in OpenStreetMap which very much 'work-in-progress' in many parts of the world.
