Jump to navigation Jump to search

Mechanical edit of network tags in road routes is an automated edit of values on network=* keys on all Croatian classified road relations. The old and new network=* values are:

Old tag New tag
network=Autoceste network=HR:Autoceste
network=Državne ceste network=HR:Državne ceste
network=Županijske ceste network=HR:Županijske ceste
network=Lokalne ceste network=HR:Lokalne ceste


Replacing the network=* key values to adhere to the <COUNTRY CODE>:<ROAD CODE> standard that is becoming more popular and guaranties that the network=* value of the relation will be unique.


The edit went through in May 2024.
