How to apply?

Hi, I have two questions:

  • Should the cai_scale tag only be used for official CAI trails or can it also be used for inofficial trails in Italy?
  • If the tag is missing and I don't have official CAI info available, should I just use my own impression of what the way looks like? Then it might make sense to indicate the source of the information by a suitable source tag, e.g. source:cai_scale=survey (=impression of mapper) and source:cai_scale=CAI (=information from CAI).

Hello, ideally you should add cai_scale only if you know the official evaluation that you can obtain for example from a local paper map, indication on the signpost or information you find on the local CAI website, but in case you get familiar with the cai_scale because for example you often walk on Italian paths you can go ahead and assign it on your own. There are guidelines in Italian

http://www.cce.cai.it/files/all_1_classificazione_percorsi_escursionistici.pdf

in the wiki then we will provide better description in English.

When a local CAI member will go through that path can validate your evaluation adding to the relation the following tags:

source=survey:CAI and survey:date=2016-01-01

that we use already

Compliance with CAI classification

I noticed that document http://www.cce.cai.it/files/all_1_classificazione_percorsi_escursionistici.pdf does not include EEA:MD and EEA:E for cai_scale (and it might also allow EEA itself, without further grade indicator). Are there other CAI documents reporting such EEA difficulty levels? Also, the above document uses the spaced dash ( - ) instead of the colon (:) to introduce EEA levels. Is it an alternative convention adopted by CAI?
