La chiave highway è quella principale per etichettare le strade. È una chiave molto generale utilizzata per fornire una descrizione, a volte vaga, dell'importanza della strada nella rete stradale.

Benché non sia specifica come altre chiavi è molto utile perché fornisce a prima vista informazioni su una sezione di una strada, ciò permette una sua utile rappresentazione prima ancora che vengano raccolti e inseriti altri dati. Il valore di altre chiavi può persino essere desunto sulla base del valore assegnato alla strada in combinazione con altre informazioni o con la sua localizzazione.

Nella descrizione sono usate definizioni giuridiche (numero della strada, ecc...) e alcuni valori sono essi stessi delle attribuzioni giuridiche (trunk e motorway), vi è però consenso sul fatto che la chiave highway vada usata per fare una descrizione generale dell'importanza della strada nella rete stradale. Questo fornisce all'utilizzatore informazioni più utili che non una classificazione giuridica o delle caratteristiche fisiche, che dipendono molto dalla zona.

Per descrivere più nel dettaglio una strada è fortemente raccomandato aggiungere attributi fisici e giuridici come lanes=*, surface=*, maxspeed=*, maxheight=* e width=*. Questi sono importanti poiché si presume che chi usa una strada voglia conoscere la sua struttura fisica e le restrizioni legali. Ad esempio c'è differenza tra una strada con una corsia ed una che ne ha quattro. Questa informazione può persino essere usata da alcune applicazioni di instradamento per stimare il tempo di percorrenza.

NOTE: Le linee guida per la classificazione nazionale delle strade (sotto) cercano di chiarire l'applicazione dei principi su esposti nei vari paesi, dove in alcuni casi sono basate anche su caratteristiche fisiche e giuridiche.

La chiave highway e le norme di accesso.

Mentre alcuni valori della chiave highway, come cycleway e bridleway, implicano un particolare tipo di traffico, con gli altri andrebbe indicato quali mezzi possono percorrere la strada. Vedi access=* per ulteriori informazioni.

Reti e sistemi di percorsi stradali.

Il valore della chiave highway dovrebbe essere applicato senza tenere conto dell'appartenenza a reti e sistemi di percorsi stradali. In molti paesi un certo tratto di strada può far parte di più percorsi e un particolare percorso può essere formato da tratti con caratteristiche differenti e di conseguenza valori di highway diversi. Fate riferimento alle guide specifiche per i vari paesi su come etichettare i percorsi e le reti stradali.

Highway (strade e vie)

Il tag highway è l'etichetta principale (e spesso l'unica) utilizzata per descrivere le strade. Esistono convenzioni per il suo utilizzo nei vari paesi, descritte nelle pagine Highway tag usage e Road.

Strade (roads).

Questi sono i valori principali per la rete stradale. Sono elencati in ordine di importanza decrescente.

highway motorway Way Autostrade a pagamento o gratuite, compresi i raccordi autostradali come le tangenziali di Milano e il Grande Raccordo Anulare di Roma. Equivalente alle Freeway, Autobahn, ecc...
Rendering-highway motorway neutral.png
Motorway-photo.jpg
highway trunk Way Strade che si pongono a metà strada tra Autostrade/Tangenziali e le Statali. Può anche essere classificato così il tratto di svincolo di un'autostrada-tangenziale che porta al centro città. Per segnalare l'esistenza di restrizioni di accesso simili a quelle in vigore per le autostrade, usare motorroad=yes. Le cosiddette superstrade potrebbero essere marcate come due corsie denotate da highway=trunk per distinguerle dalle autostrade.

Le strade extraurbane ad una sola corsia per senso di marcia, che però non presentano incroci sul loro percorso e abbiano accessi ed uscite mediati da corsie di ac/de-celerazione potrebbero essere marcati da highway=trunk, per distinguerle da altre strade che potrebbero presentare incroci e rotonde.
Rendering-highway trunk L3005 MF.png
Dscf0444 600.jpg
highway primary Way Strade di importanza nazionale e regionale che non godono della classificazione di autostrada, tangenziale o superstrada. Collegano tra loro le città principali. Normalmente sono classificate come SS (Strade Statali) o SR (Strade Regionali), tuttavia esistono eccezioni come per esempio in piccoli centri montani dove la strada SS attraversa il paese ma la strada primaria è una tangenziale di moderna costruzione che evita il centro abitato.

In ambito urbano normalmente formano il primo anello della città (vedi Milano) e normalmente sono classificate come Viali.

Rendering-highway primary neutral.png
Primary-photo.jpg
highway secondary Way Strade di importanza regionale e provinciale. Collegano tra loro i principali comuni di una regione. Sono normalmente classificate come SP (Strade provinciali) ma esistono eccezioni.

In ambito urbano normalmente sono classificate come vie importanti anche a due corsie per senso di marcia.

Rendering-highway secondary neutral.png
Meyenburg-L134.jpg
highway tertiary Way Strade di importanza locale o comunale. Collegano tra loro i comuni più piccoli. In ambito urbano sono le strade laterali a primarie e secondarie con un discreto flusso di traffico.
Rendering-highway tertiary neutral.png
OHZ-K28-Bergedorfer Str.jpg
highway unclassified Way Classificazione per il livello minimo della rete stradale extraurbana. In ambito urbano sono utilizzate per raggiungere destinazioni nelle immediate vicinanze e il flusso del traffico è relativamente più basso che in strade di classificazione superiore. Spesso collegano villaggi e borghi. (Non si tratta di strade la cui classificazione è ignota, per le quali si usa highway=road).
Rendering-highway unclassified.png
Highway unclassified-photo.jpg
highway residential Way Strade situate in zone residenziali per l'accesso alle abitazioni, senza funzione di collegamento tra diversi insediamenti. Sono spesso fiancheggiate da case.

Rendering-highway service.png
Alley.jpg

Strade di collegamento (link roads).

Rendering-highway motorway link.png
Dscf0242 600.jpg
highway trunk_link Way Tratti di collegamento (svincoli/rampe) tra un trunk ed un altro trunk o altra strada di classificazione inferiore. Per segnalare l'esistenza di restrizioni di accesso simili a quelle in vigore per le autostrade, usare motorroad=yes.
Rendering-highway trunk link.png

Road.png

Vie e percorsi non carreggiabili (paths).

highway footway Way Percorsi costruiti appositamente per i pedoni: passaggi pedonali urbani, percorsi nei parchi pubblici, anche sentieri se fortemente mantenuti e non allo stato naturale. Aggiungere anche il tag surface=*, quando possibile. Usare highway=pedestrian per le strade pedonali nelle zone dello shopping, highway=track per percorsi praticati da veicoli agricoli o similari.

Steps.jpg
highway path Way Sentieri non pensati per un uso specifico. Aggiungere eventualmente anche i tag per il trekking difficoltà, visibilità sentiero, per la MTB Key:mtb:scale e le caratteristiche del fondo surface=*. Probabilmente è meglio usare highway=footway per vialetti destinati prevalentemente ai pedoni, highway=cycleway per quelli usabili da pedoni e anche dai ciclisti, highway=bridleway per quelli usabili da pedoni e anche cavalli, e highway=track per quelli praticabili con veicoli agricoli o similari.

When cycleway is drawn as its own way (see Bicycle)

highway cycleway Way Piste ciclabili su carreggiata dedicata, prevalentemente od esclusivamente ad uso cicloturistico.

La presenza di corsie ciclabili su strade ad uso condiviso va invece segnalata aggiungendo un tag cycleway=* appropriato al tag highway=* che descrive la strada su cui giacciono.

Esempi

In Islanda la strada principale del paese è principalmente una strada asfaltata a due corsie, ma in alcuni tratti è ancora non asfaltata a una corsia e mezzo. Nonostante ciò rimane comunque "primary" e le parti non asfaltate sono etichettate di conseguenza.

Equivalenze internazionali

Qui sotto trovate una tabella comparativa di come le strade siano etichettate nei vari paesi. Gli utenti dovrebbero consultare le guide specifiche dei vari paesi per avere più dettagli. Vedere Category:Projects per i progetti specifici dei vari paesi e [Tagging]] per una lista delle guide.

No sign-MotorwayStart Duel-502.png Autopistas

Dual carriage way of high speed. These are routes that connect urban centers with speed limit of around 100 km/h or higher, with 2 lanes in each direction. Every lane should be drawn, with the tag oneway=yes. Local roads have no direct access to these roads.

Rutas Nacionales

National Routes as defined by the Instituto Geográfico Nacional (IGN). The tag ref=RNxx should be used (for example RN7).

Rutas Provinciales y Avenidas

State Routes as defined by the Instituto Geográfico Nacional (IGN). The tag ref=RPxx should be used (for example RP7). Also used on Avenues or main streets inside cities and urban environments.

Colectoras (sideroads near motorways). Not currently used. Rural ways crossing countryside.

highway=residential and highway=living_street should be used in residential areas, when primary does not apply.

Flag of Brazil Brazil Express highway (speed >= 80km/h), paved (asphalt or concrete), dual carriageway (with a physical division between opposite direction lanes) or one way, with two or more lanes on each direction, WITHOUT crossings or obstructions (traffic lights, speed bumps, etc), accessed through entrances and exits tangent to the highway. Always mapped as two parallel ways (one in each direction). Fast highway (speed >= 80km/h), paved (asphalt or concrete), dual carriageway (with a physical division between opposite direction lanes) or one way, with two or more lanes on each direction, WITH crossings or obstructions (traffic lights, speed bumps, etc), accessed directly by local traffic through perpendicular streets, which may directly cross the highway. Always mapped as two parallel ways (one in each direction). Rural: Fast transit road (speed >= 80km/h, or 60km/h in mountain regions), paved (asphalt or concrete), with side shoulder large enough to park a car (2m or more) or more than one lane per direction.

Urban: Arterial road, fast (speed >= 60km/h), paved (asphalt or concrete), single or dual carriageway, connecting many neighborhoods, forming the main circulation net in large cities or the main entrance and exit routes in medium and small cities.

Rural: Paved road (asphalt, concrete, stone or other firm pavement) which does not meet the requirements of a primary road.

Urban: Collector road, medium speed (>= 40km/h), paved (asphalt, concrete, stone or other firm pavement), generally single carriageway, forming the secondary circulation net between neighborhoods in large cities or the main circulation net in small cities.

Rural: Unpaved road (earth, gravel, sand, etc.) large enough for two vehicles (>= 6m), generally with compacted soil.

Urban: Collector road, generally paved and single carriageway, forming the circulation net inside neighborhoods in large cities or the secondary circulation net in small cities.

Rural: Unpaved road (earth, gravel, sand, etc.) large enough for two cars (>= 4m), with traffic generally flowing in the middle of the road, generally with uncompacted soil.

Urban: Local road, with no significant flow of vehicles, outside residential areas. Use highway=residential in residential areas and highway=living_street where pedestrians have priority over vehicles.

Flag of Brunei Brunei Roads with the suffix "highway" in its English name (or the prefix "lebuhraya" in its Malay name), and at least 70% of intersections between roads are interchanges (not at grade). This criterion excludes intersections at the two ends of the highway, as well as intersections with "simpangs" and service roads, and other exceptions may apply. Must be a dual carriageway with at least two lanes in each direction. Must have two speed limits on most of the highway - one for normal (usually 100 km/h) and another for wet road conditions (usually 70 km/h). Roads (that are not highways) connecting towns in two or more districts together directly (i.e. not passing through Malaysia). Can be a single or a dual carriageway. Usually has a speed limit of 80 km/h. Frequently used roads in cities, towns and shopping districts, and roads connecting urban areas or urban to rural/residential areas. Usually dual carriageway and has a speed limit of 65 km/h. Roads that are less frequently used. Roads connecting two or more rural areas without passing through an urban area fit into this category. Less significant roads and collector roads. Roads that do not fit in any categories listed here nor other categories. Most "simpangs" fall under the "residential" category.

Đường hai chiều chỉ dành cho các loại xe cơ giới, cấm xe thô sơ và người đi bộ. Tốc độ cho phép thường từ 40-80km/h. Giới hạn tốc độ được áp dụng riêng biệt cho mỗi loại xe trong từng làn đường. Mỗi chiều thường có 1-5 làn dành cho các loại ô tô và một làn riêng dành cho xe mô tô.

Đường quốc lộ và một số loại đường lớn có nhiều điểm chung với đường cao tốc nhưng chưa phải là đường cao tốc. Đường trọng điểm có mật độ giao thông lớn, đóng vai trò chính trong việc đi lại giữa nhiều khu vực. Đường có thể có mật độ giao thông vừa đến lớn, cũng dùng để đi lại giữa các khu vực. Đường này thường dùng để giảm số lượng xe lưu thông qua các tuyến trọng điểm, có thể giúp người tham gia giao thông đi đến khu vực cần đến nhanh hơn. Đường dân sinh, có mật độ giao thông nhỏ đến vừa, giúp đi lại giữa các khu dân cư và có thể nối một số đường giao thông lớn hơn. Ngõ rộng có mật độ giao thông nhỏ hoặc các tuyến đường nhỏ trong khu dân cư không được đặt tên. Những đường này có chiều rộng chỉ đủ cho một ô tô lưu thông và những xe nhỏ hơn có thể vượt lên khỏi ô tô đó.
