LoMap add tidal=yes tag?

Karl Chick shared this idea 22 months ago

I've been working on updating my OS Map theme for LoMaps having improved the OAM version, and discovered that LoMaps do not include the tidal=yes tag as part of its tag-mapping.

Many footpaths (at least around the UK, maybe other countries too?) cross areas that are tagged as tidal=yes or the highways (roads, paths etc) are tagged as tidal=yes -- hence these are footpaths that are only accessible at low tide.

In the OAM theme I have been able to indicate where footpaths that are tidal, useful information to people planning a route.

Tidal=yes, has also proved useful for distinguishing between natural=wetland area that are probably tidal/coastal vs inland wetlands where no wetland=<value> has been set.

Currently both these uses are impossible with LoMaps.

There are 82,131 elements in OSM that use the tidal tag.

Would it be possible to add tidal=yes tag-mapping for LoMaps?
