I asked this question last week of the OSM Help community:
I'm looking for tagging that will indicate that a particular river
in the United States is a "Wild and Scenic River" as defined by
the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act. I have searched with Overpass for
waterway=* that also has a scenic=yes tag but it turned up no
results. Can anyone provide some guidance and/or examples?
I got one response that talked about tagging the area surrounding
such rivers, a wilderness corridor of sorts, which was useful but
beyond the scope of this first inquiry. I'm looking for a way to
tag the river itself.
I'm turning to the tagging community now for advice.
Like you, I know of the Wild, Scenic and Recreational Rivers designations.
Like you, I lack a good way to tag them.
If nobody else has come up with anything - and do let's also ask on
since this is a peculiarly American designation - then let's invent
and Wikify it.
I see no reason not to use scenic=yes on a waterway.
It is only an unapproved tag that is 'in use' ... so its use on
waterways is a simple extension.
