|Tools for this tag|
The tourism=information describes an information source for tourists, travellers and visitors. But it does not differ between diverse types of an information point. This key helps refine this tag a little bit more, so it should be easier to find the right information point on a map.
This tag can be also used for information boards at a educational trail. The route and the boards/maps should then be parts of a relation.

For signs that show the direction of a route without giving any information about a destination or the specific route (markers between guideposts) the usage of route_marker is recommended. (Combine with bicycle=yes if bicycle route as in the example).
