Mountainous Crops and Paddy Rice Fields

Posted by iiEarth on 18 October 2019 in English (English)

Hello everyone!

I am mapping in Indahtanah, a state in Lorotoban. It is a Timor-based island nation. You can read more about it here.

With that out of the way, I was mapping rural 'stuff' (farmland, crops, orchards, et cetera). But, I came to a part where the farmland meets with the forest (in this case, rather hilly). I can't find any good examples of rice paddies or any mountainous farmland in Openstreetmap. If anyone has an example, can you please comment it down? I would like some inspiration mostly in an Asian place (rice is mostly grown in Asia anyway).

Location: 4.955, 113.466

I recommend to just look at these rice fields on the photos. They are divided into terraces with width varying between 10 to 30 meters. At the end of each terrace is straight wall made of stones (which may be tagged as embankment) and that's all.

I have drawn terraced rice paddies in Tárrases (and please! no comments about the appropriateness of rice paddies at 58°S - I am aware it violates verisimilitude, and I imagine some kind of specially adapted, non-real-world variety of rice to solve this, perhaps a hybrid type of wild rice as occurs in the Canadian prairies).

They can be seen in detail e.g. here:

You can also look through examples on OSM:

Tagging is landuse=farmland & crop=rice

I also need this. Kuehong, a Vietnamese state, will also have some rice paddies as well. So far I managed some farms in Vang Ngat, partly inspired by the current featured map:
