Usage

There is no unique way for the roles in hiking route relations although they carry a high potential for the rendering of hiking trails. This was requsted by Sarah Hoffmann on the FOSSGIS conference.

Role name Explaination
main The main "normal" roletype for the main section of the hiking trails.
forward Section of the hiking trail that can only be hiked into the direction of the way.
backward Section of the hiking trail that can only be hiked against the direction of the way.
alternative Tags the members of an alternative path to main path.
excursion Can be used on parts of the trail that leads to a viewpoint, peak or other. The path has to be hiked back again or else it will be a alternative.
approach A path that is leading from a train station / bus station / parking to main hiking trail
