This tag network:type=node_network is used on recreational route relations, node network relations and junction nodes to indicate they are part of a node network. A node network is a recreational route network consisting of numbered junctions connected by node-to-node routes. Node networks for cycling and hiking are common in The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. In some other countries they are emerging. Node networks for horse riding, paddling (canoe) are being developed.
In the case of node networks the key network=* is used to describe the scale and mode of transport, e.g. network=rcn describes a regional cycling network. Therefore network:type=* should be used to distingish these networks from other routes.
|network:type||node_network||A network consisting of numbered junction nodes connected by node-to-node routes.|
Other values for the key network:type may be added when other recreational network systems arise.
