Relations/Proposed/Towpath

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a proposal for a set of tags and members making a Relation to represent a towpath, such as alongside a canal or river.

The Towpath relation:

  • groups together a waterway and its officially designated towpath (or, occasionally, towpaths). When making waterways maps, you may want to e.g. render all non-waterways dim except for the towpath.
  • makes it clear which way or ways form the towpath - some canals have footpaths on both sides, but only one is the official towpath.
  • keeps them associated even when they diverge - e.g. if the waterway goes through a tunnel, the towpath may pass over the top of or around the hill, some distance from the waterway.

Way or Node Role Recurrence? Discussion
Way towpath one or more the way representing the towpath
Way waterway one or more the way representing the waterway

These are "one or more" because it may be that there's a break in the way representing the waterway and not in the one representing the towpath, or vice versa, and it seems unnecessary to require matching breaks.
