  • network:type=node_network - when the route is part of a node network
  • 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.
