Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

As a beginner, how would you suggest I record stepping stones (if at all)?

A footpath crosses a small river on stepping stones. There is no road, no ford or bridge. How would I show this? I can't find anything relevant in the wiki, the closest entry is a vehicle ford.

Thanks, John

Looking at the tagwatch i found the following:

  • SteppingStones=yes 1 usage
  • stepping_stones=yes 3 usages
  • bridge=stepping_stones 14 usages
  • ford=stepping_stones 32 usages

The last one is also documented in wiki and it is probably the best way to tag stepping stones.

And there's also "highway=stepping_stones" (23 uses according to tagstat - http://tagstat.telascience.org/tagvaluedetails.php?tag=highway&value=stepping_stones)
