Water (Terrain Attribute)
(Redirected from Water Terrain)Jump to navigation Jump to search
|WATER||nominal||Surface||Whether this Terrain Type represents a form of water (and what type).|
Most constructions can only be built upon land, hence cannot occur on this Terrain Type. Water terrains play an important part in the calculations by the Water Overlay. Three types are distinguished;
- 1: waterways: inland and part of managed water system;
- 2: water bodies: inland but not part of a managed water system;
- 3: sea: sea or ocean.
This distinguishing value is used for several tools and algorithms.
