An area representation of highway=cycleway.

Background

As all cycleways are areas in real world, there was special tag for cycleways areas (outlines) needed, besides of highway=cycleway way way tagged through their middle.

How to map

Correct tagging

Optional tags:

  • surface=* (What is the cycleway made of? E.g. concrete, asphalt)

Tagging mistakes to avoid

Example tagging

Case Area tags Mapping examples
Znak C-13.svg

area Polygon

Znak C-13.svg

relation Multipolygon

area:highway=cycleway

+ type=multipolygon

Correct tagging of cycleway multipolygon depends on character of place, you can:

  • draw a multipolygon on a larger landcover area (eg. leisure=park) or
  • add proper landcover tag to every inner element (eg. traffic_calming=island, see example photo) or
  • complete empty inner parts with proper landcover areas (eg. building=yes)

Bicycle crossing

highway=cycleway

+ cycleway=crossing

Draw an area around streets intersection, treating stop lines and crossings as its edges and tag it with:

area:highway=* (class of highway, eg. area:highway=primary)

+ junction=yes

If it's a single crossing being far away from streets intersection, draw it just as a linear way crossing street area without junction=yes tag.

Non-segregated "foot & bicycle" crossing

highway=path

+ path=crossing
+ foot=designated
+ bicycle=designated
+ segregated=no

Draw an area around streets intersection, treating stop lines and crossings as its edges and tag it with:

area:highway=* (class of highway, eg. area:highway=primary)

+ junction=yes

If it's a single crossing being far away from streets intersection, draw it just as a linear way crossing street area without junction=yes tag.

Segregated "foot & bicycle" crossing

Method 1 (one linear way):

highway=path
+ path=crossing
+ foot=designated
+ bicycle=designated
+ segregated=yes

Draw an area around streets intersection, treating stop lines and crossings as its edges and tag it with:

area:highway=* (class of highway, eg. area:highway=primary)

+ junction=yes

If it's a single crossing being far away from streets intersection, draw it just as a linear way crossing street area without junction=yes tag.


Segregated path crossing diagram.jpg Segregated crossing (bicycle - path).jpg
Method 2 (two linear ways):
  • Through foot part:

highway=footway
+ footway=crossing

  • Through bicycle part:

highway=cycleway
+ cycleway=crossing

Segregated "foot & bicycle" crossing with traffic calming island

Method 1 (one linear way):
  • Street area:

Draw an area around streets intersection, treating stop lines and crossings as its edges and tag it with:

area:highway=* (class of highway, eg. area:highway=primary)

+ junction=yes

If it's a single crossing being far away from streets intersection, draw it just as a linear way crossing street area without junction=yes tag.

  • Foot part of the island:

area:highway=footway

  • Bicycle part of the island:

area:highway=cycleway

  • Side parts of the island:

landuse=grass or leisure=garden or traffic_calming=island

Segregated "foot & bicycle" path

Method 1 (one linear way):

highway=path
+ foot=designated
+ bicycle=designated
+ segregated=yes

(path way should be joined through a mutal part of the footway/ cycleway areas, see example screenshot)

  • Foot part:

area:highway=footway

  • Bicycle part:

area:highway=cycleway

(both areas should be joined to each other if there is no physical barrier between them, see example screenshot)

Method 2 (two linear ways):
  • Through foot part:

  • Through bicycle part:

highway=cycleway
