Just getting started. Can the tag informal be helpful to the "real-life" community ?

Here is a comment to a changeset ( http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/changeset/16994424 ) : " Added some tags. Hope that the tag informal=yes, can be used to make it easier for the community and public officials to learn about and thus respect or take into account more or less established usages of land."

Mortens Scrapbook for Capital Area, Iceland

About the cycling (and walking) routes in the Capital Area

  • The City of Reykjavik devised a numbering scheme for the paths, but seem to have abandoned it on later cycling and walking maps, in wait for a national numbering system, most likely.
  • Signage is almost inexistent. There are large maps showing the network, posted in perhaps 8 locations, though.

On routing services

It is of essence that ways that are to be useable for routing are connected. Not just seem to be connected. Keepright service and others can help. Also playing with a routing service that updates routing data daily. Still many routing engines clearly are much less strict regarding restrictions for car trips at the end and start of trips than the counterparts for walking or cycling. (!)

  • http://open.mapquest.com Seems to update routing data on a daily basis
  • http://brouter.de/brouter-web/ Provides a trekking option which is often the one people transport cycling would choose. Use Esc-button to stop adding points
  • ridethecity.com/iceland is doings some strange things and do not seem to update maps often, but allow one to provide feedback, which they seem (?) to respond to, but improving routing in that point.

MTB tracks / routes /ways

Road racing routes, what about them ?

There are a few mapped in Norway ? As mtb, although they are not ? Not actual routes, though. The map is supposed to reflect the landscape I guess, not how it is sometimes used ? Is Google more flecxivle for such overlays ? There are lots of specialised services already, but they are quite fragmented. mapmyride.com, ridewithgps.com and more. Some examples :

MTB /partly on paved roads partly on tracks

  • Blue Lagoon Challenge
  • Heiðmerkuráskorun

On paved, partly major roads

  • Gullhringin named after the Golden Circle tourist trap
  • Reykjavík - Hvolsvöllur
  • Cyclothon relay around Iceland ? that is a long one ...

Cycling clubs etc

Tools I find useful in mapping for cycling especially

      • On OCM bicycle_parking is only shown as a small blue dot and only if zoomed in. If capacity >= 20 a larger blue "C" and the capaicty numbers is rendered on OCM

    • Bicycle parking heat map -> http://www.cycleparkingheatmap.com/
      • Capacity=1 and above produces a coloured centre, else amenity=bicycle_parking produces a small black disc/point. But several black points close together produces some colour when zoomed out a bit. The representations is totally oblivious to type of parking, so even wheelbenders, wall_loops are shown. I advise not to register capacity for undefined or wall_loops which would make them unecessarily visible on opencyclemap.org and the bicycle parking heat map.

For the overpass-turbo query wizard

  • bicycle_parking=stands and capacity!~"^.$" | bicyle stands with a registered capacity of 10 or higher
  • bicycle_parking is not null and bicycle_parking!=wall_loops and capacity is not null | bicyle stands with a registered capacity but not wall_loops nor unregistered
  • bicycle_parking=stands and capacity is not null | bicyle stands with a registered capacity
  • tunnel=yes and bicycle=no and maxspeed=* ( Example of bicycle=no but some provisioning for cycles to cross big bridge all the same https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/237168107#map=15/60.4671/6.8350 )
  • Village or town or "Camp Site" or farm or hamlet or "guest house" or Cafe or restaurant or "fast food" or shop or amenity=water
