This proposal has been obsoleted by the "Hiking_checkpoint" proposal.

Proposal

Define a tag for point of interests where a hiker can validate the reach of a checkpoint.

Rationale

The participants (usually hikers completing a long distance hiking route) have to validate the completion of the tour at the reach of every checkpoint. They can do this usually with dating and stamping of the appropriate box in their personal completion brochure. It is needed to stamp at every checkpoint. If this is not possible, it is accepted the stamp of the closest place to the route which is not marked in the brochure. The checkpoints can be located in pubs or shops in the villages, on railway stations usually in the ticket offices, but many times they are in the forest in their standard boxes equipped on trees or on the fences of forester’s lodges. The checkpoints are permanently placed on their locations. They are not transitional objects placed there for a race, etc.

Usually the hikers have to start or finish a trip at a checkpoint. So they have to stamp twice at same checkpoint: at the finish of a section and at the start of the next section if these are in two different date.

It is very useful to see the checkpoint on your GPS unit, if you use one.

For an example, see this about the use in the hungarian Countrywide Blue Tour.

Tagging

Usually in conjunction with a name or description tag and some contact information.

Example:

name=Blue Tour stamping point, Írott-kő
tourism=stamping_point
url=http://termeszetbarat.hu/turamozgalmak/orszagos_kektura

Or:

name=John Bull Pub
tourism=stamping_point
building=yes
url=http://termeszetbarat.hu/turamozgalmak/orszagos_kektura
description=Országos Kéktúra
description:en=Countrywide Blue Tour

  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. -- Because I think that this should become an attribute (stamping_point=yes) and not be part of the tourism=*, because otherwise you cannot combine the tag with many of the places interesting for tourists. --Dieterdreist 15:28, 16 July 2011 (BST)

I agree, I started a new proposal. --Herrbert74 12:45, 15 July 2011 (BST)
