Bicycle tags map
Bicycle tags map (website) shows bicycle related tags which might not otherwise show up on the standard map rendering styles.
Goal & description
This wiki is a translation of the Dutch original. All content applies to the Netherlands and may differ from other countries. The goal of this web map with bicycle tags is rendering bicycle related tags that are not (properly) rendered on OSM’s 'Mapnik' map or on the cyclemap version.
The map contains the following layers
- Cycleway tags
- Most commonly used bicycle related properties of (cycle) ways
- Surface tags
- A description of the “highway” surface
- Route tags
- Overview of cycle route relations and (non) cycleable way (subjective)
- Bugs in tags
- Possible bugs on the map.
Please see the OSM forum topic about this map (Dutch)
This map contains layers with the most commonly used bicycle related tags on “highways”. Please see Map_Features#Highway
|red||highway=cycleway||All separate cycleways. A compulsory cycle way (NL:sign G11) is tagged with highway=cycleway|
|purple||highway=cycleway & moped=yes
|(NL:sign G12a)(moped/cycleway), indicated by|
|blue dotted||highway=cycleway & moped=no
|Compulsory cycle way, indicated by (NL:sign G11).|
|blue||highway=cycleway & mofa=no
|Non-compulsory cycle way, indicated by (NL:sign G13).|
|pink||cycleway=cyclestreet or cyclestreet=yes||Cycle street|
Also cycleway:right=track, cycleway=opposite_track etc
Ways with a cycleway that is not totally separated from the main road. E.g. when the 2 are separated by a concrete curb or refuge.
Also cycleway:right=lane, cycleway=opposite_lane etc
|Ways with separate lanes for cyclists (with bicycle sign on lane)|
|orange dotted||cycleway=shared_lane||Ways with separate lanes for cyclists (no bicycle sign on lane)|
|blue dotted||oneway=yes||Ways (unclassified, residential, cycleway) that have a one-way direction.|
|green dotted||cycleway=opposite or oneway:bicycle=no||
Ways (unclassified, residential) that have a one-way direction but not for cyclist.
|green line or circle||bicycle=yes||On paths (highway=footway, path, pedestrian, steps) accessible to cyclists|
or on nodes with barrier=* except barrier=bollard.
This layer shows an indication of the paving of tracks, cycle ways and footways.
surface=gravel, (crushed_)shell(s), compacted(_gravel)
surface=grass, ground, unpaved, dirt, earth, sand, woodchips, pebblestones
- Cycle routes (NCN/RCN/LCN/ICN en MTB routes), see Bike_routes#Tagging_Cycle_Route_Networks including cycle nodes rcn_ref=*
- Hiking routes including hiking nodes rwn_ref=*
- Horse (back) riding routes including horse nodes rhn_ref=* - better not cycle here!
- Former railway lines railway=abandoned/disused/dismantled are often replaced by scenic cyclepaths
- Info tourism=information
The map also shows (non) cycleable ways (subjective):
- Non cycleable ways
highway=proposed, construction, footway, path, pedestrian, steps, bridleway, platform* Other highways with bicycle=no Other highways with access=no or horse=designated*
(*) excluding “highways” tagged with :
bicycle=yes, designated, official, permissive, destination mtb=yes, designated, official, permissive, destination ramp:bicycle=yes (combined with) highway=steps
- Cycleable ways
All other “highways” excluding highway=motorway(_link) or highway=trunk(_link)
This layer is meant for finding possible errors in the map. Kind of like the Keepright, but then specifically for bicycle related tags.
Errors like ways that are tagged with following combinations:
- route=bicycle & bicycle=no
- highway=cycleway & bicycle=no NB: could also be a temporary closed cycleway.
- cycleway=* & bicycle=no
- highway=crossing tagged as “way” instead of a “node”-element.
- highway=road (road that needs another “highway=” tag.)
- FIXME=* combined with cycleway=* or highway=cycleway
- Redundant tags like a bicycle=yes on a highway=cycleway
- cycleway/paths without a proper streetname (no name, 'fietspad', 'path') to improve address search on the GPS
- highway=nonsense: invalid OSM tagging, like highway=fietspad, highway=Radweg etc.
By clicking on the map more detailed info about the “highway” is retrieved from OSM.
There are also shortcuts to OSM.org, Google Maps, Bing Aerial as well as Openstreetmap Notes (bug report) and Keepright for error checks.
The area can also be loaded in your favourite OSM editor JOSM, Potlatch or IDeditor.
The map works fine using Firefox or Chrome, but Internet Explorer (IE) can have issues.
- change IE security level. Add the domain “mijndev.openstreetmap.nl” to your trusted sites, set security to “low”.
Weblink extensions for Garmin's Mapsource are handy shortcuts.
With this you can switch directly from e.g. Openfietsmap to the OSM.org map on the web.
