TMC/TMC Import Germany/Segments
Tagging-schema for TMC:Segment
Segments are important parts of TMC:Roads in TMC-Locationscodes. They 'are chained and can thus not only have their own location-code but absolutely require also the location-code of the next and the previous segment in this chain (unless they are the first/last of the chain).
This chaining must be kept in the import as it is referenced in TMC-messages that specify locations using a Point, a direction (forward/reverse) and a number of steps. The given location may be the LocationCode of a Point to traverse the linked list of Points, a Segment to traverse the linked list of Segments. Roads and Areas have no such linking.
