How to map?
The following characteristics should be included on the relation:
- type=route - mandatory
- route=hiking - mandatory
- network=iwn - mandatory
- ref=* - reference of the route (e.g. E1)
- name=* - official name of the route (e.g. Frankenweg)
- description=* - what is special about this route
- operator=* - the route is operated by this authority/company etc. e.g. Alpenverein
- distance=* - the distance covered by this route, if known. For information of users and automatic evaluation e.g. of completeness. Given including a unit and with a dot for decimals. (e.g. 12.5km)
- symbol=* - describes the symbol that is used to mark the way along the route, e.g., Red cross on white ground for the "Frankenweg" in Franconia, Germany.
- osmc:symbol=* - coded description of the route marker symbol
- wiki:symbol=* - reference to a route marker symbol uploaded to the OSM wiki
Divide routes into sections
Common practice is to create routes with no more than about 300 elements. But this is often the case with long routes. The routes are divided, e.g. at political borders and summarizes the individual sections in a superroute.
