Main ways to Santiago

The Camino de Santiago (known also as the Way of Saint James among other names) is a network of pilgrims' ways or pilgrimages leading to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. It popular for hikers, pilgrims and bicyclists. This page gathers information about mapping the whole network of hikers trails (for bicycle route see EV3) and is part of the European long-distance paths project (see path E3 in particular).

You can see the map here : http://hiking.waymarkedtrails.org/#?map=6!47.3584!4.1638

Relations structure

Because the network is very large, it is not practical to put all its ways to one relation. Instead it is separated to smaller parts, which contain individual ways. All these parts should be added into the [Relation:network network relation] relation 153968. In some countries there is another national network-relation introduced, which makes hierarchy with two levels: relation 153968 includes national level relation which includes relations for individual parts of route.

Overview of network parts

The following is overwiew of parts of the whole trails network. Following convenstions are used

  • Quality of mapping is marked with colours: unknown quality very bad quality bad quality medium qualitygood quality very good quality
  • Completness of mapping is marked with various line styles: fully mapped quite all mapped partially mapped - few parts mapped - empty -

way (blank) or 'forward' or 'backward' [1] the ways making up the route.
area node place_of_worship Main churches along the way or at stages where are services for pilgrims.
area node information Information resource for pilgrims see information=*

Other

Don't forget mapping the amenities (shelter, fountain, drinking water, bench, toilets, pharmacy... amenity=*), shops (shop=*) and other touristic features (hostel, camp, picnic_site, viewpoint... tourism=*) along the way that could have interest for the pilgrims, but WITHOUT including them into the relation.

Notes

  • Needs to be corrected: Most part of the Spanish mapped way is from the EV3.
  • French part legislation problem: According to the French Legistation, the GR (Chemins de Grande Randonnée) can't be mapped as they are intellectual property of the Fédération Française de Randonnée Pédestre. but pluri-secular ways like the ways to Santiago de Compostella should be in OpenStreetMap. For this purpose, for distinguishing the Camino, as pilgrimage, from the GR, as hiking, main churches (as Vézelay, Le Puy-en-Velay, Conques, Moissac...) must be added to the relation as role=place_of_worship (see below).
