Definition

The tourism=information describes an information source for tourists, travellers and visitors. But it does not differ between diverse types of an information point. This key helps refine this tag a little bit more, so it should be easier to find the right information point on a map.

This tag can be also used for information boards at a educational trail. The route and the boards/maps should than be part of relation.
