Some of the issues, in order of importance:

  • The outer way is tagged as waterway=riverbank (equivalent to natural=water water=river). This means that even if the multipolygon is correct and should make the islands visible, there is another single-way polygon around it which doesn’t care about the islands.
  • The way you highlighted in your screenshot is not a member of the multipolygon. Add it with role “inner”, like the other islands.
  • The polygon is tagged water=river but not natural=water. According to the wiki, water=* is a refinement of natural=water, and should not exist without the later. water=* might work on its own for some consumers (like the default osm rendering), but not all.
  • All islands have apparently been traced from Landsat imagery, but you might want to use Bing or Mapbox, which have a higher resolution.

Happy fixing :)

Hey I reviewed the data in the area, I notice that there are a lot of ways that are parallel to one another, I would suggest getting familiar with multi-polygon relations and utilizing them, otherwise I feel like the data could become a real mess and be somewhat tedious to work with just because of how many ways there will be so close together. If you have any questions please message me.
