ref

Checkpoints of a hiking route might be numbered. In this case checkpoint:ref=* is useful. --Biff (talk) 05:47, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

role in a hiking relation

I think that it may be useful to set the role of the node or area of a checkpoint to "checkpoint" when adding it to a hiking relation (type=route; route=hiking). --Biff (talk) 05:52, 20 April 2015 (UTC)


checkpoint as member of a relation instead of attribute

Sometimes the same node can be a checkpoint for two or more different courses, for example in Spain "Camino de Santiago" crosses "Camino del Cid" in Burgos. The current implementation cannot manage that situation. I suggest convert checkpoint in a kind of relation with the current attributes at the relation level, and the checkpoint nodes being members of the relation (type=course). Main benefitsː common attributes as course, type and url are created only once; all the checkpoints for a course are handled together, so the editing work is easier; each node can be a checkpoint for several courses. --Robertogeb (talk) 23:11, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

I have created an example relation to illustrate my proposalː https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/8305323 . The four first members also contains the tags as in the current definition of checkpoint. To add a new member in the relation is at least four times faster than to include the tags in each node. --Robertogeb (talk) 23:47, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
