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


is there an osm map for canoe and kayak tours?

Such a map must display weirs for example.

Thanks Stefan

What sort of map do you want? A website? An app (and if so for what)? Something you can install on a Garmin handheld?

At frist, that doesn't matter. I'ld like to study the map to plan my tours.

Beg your pardon - I didn't translate kanu / kajak to English ...

That's my experience, too: Weirs are mapped on OSM, but there's no map to diplay them for planning canoe & kayak tours. That's the map or overlay I'm looking for.

The question sounded like a place and confused me. In English it's spelt canoe/kayak.

OpenStreetMap.org does display weirs if they are mapped, example of weirs on the River Wear (grey dotted lines).

OpenSeaMap is said to display a whitewater chart if you use the menu View->Sport. However that didn't show when I looked at the example spot.

There is some effort to map whitewater elements, but no online maps of the data currently.
