Water streams in Dutch geo data sources are sometimes drawn as a Polygon and sometimes as a Line. Therefore a separate layer for water lines is provided. Note! a water body or stream is not defined by the geometry. Water streams can be drawn as a line or a polygon. Water bodies are often given as polygons but also larger rivers are given as polygons. No explicit reasons can be found for this difference. Mostly water drawn as lines are smaller water streams like ditches between fields.





The type of water line is the width given by the source data.

Possible values:

  • 3m
  • 6m
  • 12m
  • 50m
  • 125m
