How to Map

Routes

A bus route that is relayed between different locations should have two or more relations with a single Relation:route_master as the parent. Route Relation:

  • The name=* tag should include the starting suburb/town and the destination. Example: name=Newcastle → Mount Hutton
  • The ref=* tag must be the route number. Usually seen on the back of the bus on an LED display. Example ref=111
  • Should be created according to route=bus

Route Master:

  • The name=* tag should equal the ref=* on the child relations for easy identification.
  • Should be created according to type=route_master

An Example:

Number Relations Description
224 type=route_master; route_master=bus +
Relation type=route + route=bus
Relation type=route + route=bus
Travels from Newcastle to Wallsend and then back along the same way to Newcastle again but on the other side of the road. The first relation would have from=Newcastle and to=Wallsend. The second relation would have from=Wallsend and to=Newcastle

Stops

The Stop number can be seen bottom right
  • A single node or area can be used for a stop.
  • A bus stop is to be based off the Public transport tagging scheme.
  • The ref=* tag must be the Stop Number. This is usually seen in a corner of the stop sign. It has the format of ref=2305117.
