network=iwn specifies the hiking route as an international route.

How to map?

Walking routes are mapped in a relation of type type=route.

The following characteristics should be included on the relation:

  • type=route - mandatory
  • route=hiking - mandatory
  • network=iwn - mandatory
  • ref=* - reference of the route (e.g. E1)
  • name=* - official name of the route (e.g. Frankenweg)
  • description=* - what is special about this route
  • operator=* - the route is operated by this authority/company etc. e.g. Alpenverein
  • distance=* - the distance covered by this route, if known. For information of users and automatic evaluation e.g. of completeness. Given including a unit and with a dot for decimals. (e.g. 12.5 km)
  • symbol=* - describes the symbol that is used to mark the way along the route, e.g., Red cross on white ground for the "Frankenweg" in Franconia, Germany.
  • osmc:symbol=* - coded description of the route marker symbol
  • wiki:symbol=* - reference to a route marker symbol uploaded to the OSM wiki

For other useful combination tags see route=hiking.

Divide routes into sections

Common practice is to create routes with no more than about 300 elements. But this is often the case with long routes. The routes are divided, e.g. at political borders and summarizes the individual sections in a superroute.

The superroute has the same characteristics as the routes regarding route=*, ref=*, network=*, name=*
