Status: in use


There are two main uses of the key:

  1. Used on hiking route relations in addition to network=lwn to provide the name of the network by setting lwn=name of network.
  2. Used on nodes and ways of hiking routes or features along (e.g. information=guidepost) to state that it is part of a local hiking network by setting lwn=yes.

This page documents the actual use but is neither a rule nor a proposal how you need to use the key.
