CanVec Feature Generic Code Geometry Attribute Value Attribute Description Attribute Code OSM Tag(s)
61- Road segment - (Segment routier) 1760009 Way Road segment - ( Segment routier ) A road is a linear section of the earth designed for or the result of vehicular movement. A road segment is the specific representation of a portion of a road with uniform characteristics. When crossing roads are separated by grades, the bisecting road segments do not share a junction. Grade separated crossings between road segments involve road structure objects, that is, either bridges or tunnels. If a junction occurs at a grade separation, it is either connected to the lower set of road segments or to the higher, but never to both. Proposed roads are not represented. 1760011 *highway=road
