Use mkgmap to build my own maps for my Garmin GPSMap 76CSx, particularly of the GCC states.

- I have customised my own set of tiles to fit neatly around the UK without excess sea or other countries
- I have customised my own style files and typ to suit my needs


Climbing route tag planning

A set of tags to describe climbing routes and crags. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Climbing was a start, but not one I like due to the ridiculous number of : in the tags


Crags

All of the routes within a crag can be grouped into a relation and must be tagged with climbing=crag.

Climbing Routes

Climbing routes can be shown with a single node marking the bottom of the route, tagged with climbing=route_bottom, or two nodes tagged with climbing=route_bottom and climbing=route_top with a way between them tagged with climbing=route.

Since climbing routes are generally quite vertical, the start and end nodes may be almost on top of each other. The rationale behind allowing two nodes and a connecting way, even though they may be extremely close on the map, is to allow a path connecting to the bottom of the route to be differentiated from a path connecting to the top. As such, if there is no top-access to the route, only a single node, marking the start, is probably preferable.

Boulders

Boulders are small rocks that have "problems" instead of routes. Sometimes they can be climbed with less protection than other areas to practice moves.
