Hiking trail relations mapping status

This tag is an extension of a tag osmc:symbol=* (for map OSMC Reit- und Wanderkarte(de) and OSMC Garmin map generator(de)). Its purpose is just to indicate the current status of hiking trail relations mapping (if known).

Syntax of the tag is: osmc:status=Status

Status can be:

  • new - Relation was just created with a few elements. It should ve checked to find out if it was not created with some partial sections elsewhere.
  • incomplete - Relation is probably incomplete and should / must be supplemented. Nobody is working on it at the moment.
  • in work by User - Relation is being mapped by User at this moment. You should not work on this relation to avoid conflicts and inconsistencies.
  • complete - Relation is complete and it should be edited just for minor changes in the future.
  • approved by User (Date) - Relation was (on given date) verified by User. Please do not edit such relations, only if the route is changed by its operator.


This tag is not used for rendering and serves just for information exchange while editing routes. However, additional notes should also be entered in the note=*.
