Introduction

Currently the "official" OSM feature list does not offer a satisfactory level of coverage for hiking and bicycle trails in the hills and mountains. There are several discussions and proposals on how to improve this, but there is still no agreement. Since hiking (and cycling) trail project have already started for Slovenia (see the map of Mariborsko Pohorje), this page contains suggestions and proposals on how to map trails in Slovenia has been created. The page also includes discussion on other related (ski trails and infrastructure, natural features etc).

Mapping Features

The following list contains features which are interesting in the context of mapping hiking and bicycle trails and related stuff. Since many of these features have not (yet) been identified and standardized by the global OSM community, the idea is to maintain a local Slovenian catalog of mapping features to make the mapping standardized at least for Slovenia.

There is of course a problem with rendering features with non-standard tags using the Mapnik and Osmarender. The solution to this would be to create a local mapping server with a customized rendering.

The feature list is by no means complete, so feel free to contribute.

Currently there isn't a separate feature for alpine huts. In Slovenia, the nearest term would probably be tourism = guest_house, but I find it unsatisfactory, maybe we should propose a new tourism = alpine_hut feature? --Breki 20:02, 16 September 2007 (BST).

or tourism = caravan_site
