If you really want to you can convert a tracklog to data automatically, but unless you have been travelling in one direction along one road, you'll end up with a bit of a mess. However this "mess" can still be worked on if you like. What you'd need to do is:

  • 1) convert tracklog to data layer - right click on the layer name in the layers panel and choose "convert to data layer".
  • 2) split the resulting since way into smaller ways for each road section - highlight a node where you want to split, then Tools>split way (P).
  • 3) tag each resulting way with the appropriate tags
