osmcoastline_ways extracts coastline ways from OSM data and writes them into a Spatialite database. The output data is meant for debugging and statistics. Use the osmcoastline program to assemble coastlines for “real” use.

You have to run osmcoastline_ways on the output of the osmcoastline_filter program, otherwise it will not work correctly!

The data is written to the Spatialite database OUTPUT-DB. If OUTPUT-DB is not set, the default “coastline-ways.db” is used. A single table “ways” is written. It contains the IDs of all ways, their geometries, and the contents of their “name” and “source” tags.

osmcoastline_ways outputs the sum of all way lengths.
