Ways to Santiago through Europe


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.

The Map

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 :

Tag Note
name=EV3, Pilgrim's Route - French part
network=icn;Camino de Santiago


Type Role Discussion
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=*


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.
