You can help!
There are many things you can do to help the map of Pakistan. Make sure to refer to the tagging guidelines below as well.
- Many roads missing on the outskirts of Karachi, in rural areas, and in Hyderabad.
- Many roads are missing in Karachi, Sukkur, Multan, Dera Ghazi Khan, Bahawalpur, Rahim Yar Khan, Lahore, Sargodha, Faisalabad, Gujranwala, Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Peshawar, Quetta.
- Hyderabad and Kohat are in better shape but still missing some roads.
Roads should be tagged in accordance with their official classification or their significance. We can further refine this tagging scheme with active participation from OSM Pakistan users.
|highway||motorway||This tag should be applied to the carriageways of all designated motorways (M1-M10). Do not tag highways as motorways which have not be designated as such by NHA, Pakistan.|
|highway||motorway_link||The link roads (sliproads / ramps) leading to and from a motorway (or between two motorways). Only use this on slip roads to which motorway regulations apply (the "last escape" slip road before a road becomes motorway is not a motorway_link and should be tagged as a trunk_link or primary_link as appropriate to the non-motorway road it diverges from)|
|highway||trunk||All National Highways built, maintained and designated as National Highways by NHA, Pakistan.|
|highway||trunk_link||The link roads (sliproads / ramps) leading to and from a National Highway.|
|highway||primary||A 6 or more lanes dual carriageway. Important or major highways in a city can also be tagged as primary.|
|highway||primary_link||The link roads (sliproads / ramps).|
|highway||secondary||Regional highways mostly maintained by the Provincial Governments connecting cities, towns or villages.|
|highway||tertiary||4 lanes dual carriageway roads in a city or high importance roads.|
|highway||unclassified|| No administrative classification. Unclassified roads typically form the lowest form of the interconnecting grid network.
Note: This is not a marker for roads where we still need to choose a highway tag.
|highway||residential||Roads accessing or around residential areas and which are not primary, secondary or tertiary.|
|highway||service||A roadway providing connections to off-road destinations (such as car parks) or servicing private sites (such as industrial estates). Tagging a road as "service" indicates that the roadway should not be considered a through route nor expected to be of high quality. Pending a recognised tag for roads under construction, "service" may also be an appropriate tag for this purpose.|
Tag as "motorway", typically rendered in blue.
