How to map

Inline skating routes are mapped in relations relation of type type=route.

The following characteristics could be included:


Most of the time, elements will be added with an empty role. For recreational route relations, a basic functional role set has been approved, see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Recreational_route_relation_roles The approved roles are: main, alternative, approach, excursion, and connection. When no role is set, main is assumed. The roles are applicable to way members and relation members. Note that in relations containing ways with the directional roles backward and forward, the functional roles should not be used. As yet, there is no approved way to assign multiple roles to one element. In such cases, you can create a child relation for the variant and add it as a member with the appropriate role.

Junction network

A junction network consists of numbered junctions of which the numbers are signposted on the routes in between. For more explanation about this method of mapping, see Cycle_routes#Tagging_Cycle_Route_Networks.

The junction number is tagged using the tag rin_ref=* and network:type=node_network on a node node. This junction is mapped at the actual intersection where the routes meet, not on a signpost next to the road.

The routes in between the junctions are mapped as relations relation of type type=route. All ways in the route are added to the relation, preferably from the lower to the higher junction number. The following tags could be included:

All junctions and route relations in a network can be added to a network relation. This is a relation relation of type type=network.
