EuroVelo 3 is the itinerary for the famous Camino de Santiago, Way to Santiago, for bicycles. The EV3 starts at Trondheim (Norway) to the shrine of Saint Jacques in Santiago de Compostela (Spain). The route passes through Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, France and Spain.
Note : for mapping the walking itinerary see Camino de Santiago.
User mikeltxo (Mikel from http://www.tagzania.com ) is doing the Camino Francés by bike from Roncesvalles/Orreaga to Santiago. Departing on Friday, October 9. I'll try to map villages, towns and POIs for pilgrims.
You can see the map here : http://osm.org/go/b@Lcv?layers=00B0FTF
But in fact, the most part of the Spanish road is mapped under the hiking Camino de Santiago. It must be imported here.
Mapping: the Relations
Each country could have a relation according to the following example :
|name=EV3, Pilgrim's Route - French part|
|network=icn;Camino de Santiago|
|(blank) or 'forward' or 'backward' ||the ways making up the route.|
|place_of_worship||Main churches along the way or at stages where are services for pilgrims.|
|information||Information resource for pilgrims see information=*|
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.
EV3 in different countries
- The destination is Santiago. If the way is leading to Santiago, chose forward or left blank, otherwise chose backward
