Starting point?

Fine, but how can we tag the starting/ending point of a roundtrip, often close to the tourist office of the village/resort? --Cordialement, [[Utilisateur:gerdami gerdami]] <sup>&#91;[[Discussion Utilisateur:gerdami|blabla]]&#93;</sup> 16:57, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Well think about something and document it. Not all roundtrip routes acutally have a single starting point. Keep it in my. There could be minor and major points. All those of course should be tagged on the node and not on the relation...--Extremecarver 20:52, 13 March 2012 (UTC)
If the roundtrip route is described with a relation, why not including the start/end node into the relation and assign a role "start" or something similar to the node? HeikoE 09:54, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
I've started giving the guidepost or information board at the beginning the role "start" and the peak/checkpoint etc. at the end the role "goal", I also think the role "link" could be used for alternative start ways. For data users it is probably easier if the start and goal roles are given to the first and last way on the route. Guttorm Flatabø 15:05, 13 August 2012 (BST)
Page Tag:route=fitness_trail suggests the use of roles start, end, start_stop for fitness trails. First way and start node would be useful for oneway roundtrips. See also this talk Talk:Walking_Routes#Roundtrip_walking_routes--Cordialement, gerdami 12:46, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
Only it isn't "end", but "stop", I've pointed out that "stop" is not a good name and suggested "end". I suggest we suggest start and end roles for at least hiking, cycle routes and other route types that could be suitable right now.--Guttorm Flatabø (talk) 10:06, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

mixed type

What's about mixed types of such tracks? Sometime hiking trails have a short way to the "round" and sometimes it'll contain more than one round (e.g. like an eight). how to map such things? --Cycling zno (talk) 14:24, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Well they are not really a roundtrip (you can enter/exit anywhere and do the tour, and arrive again at the startpoint. I would tag the roundtrip=no. --Extremecarver (talk) 12:39, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
