Dutch cycle route planner

To OSM users in the Netherlands: I saw this link you may find useful:

I guess it uses mostly proprietary data, and the tracks added by volunteers do not appear to be based on GPS traces (see Handleiding Editor Fietsroute-Planner (Dutch)). I found another site [1], which has GPX tracks of cycleways but does not appear to have any naming information attached to it. --Freek 12:37, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
According to the licence on the GPS tracks and other interesting info (e.g. node networks) are not freely distributable and therefore of no use for OSM. --Lambertus 13:07, 4 May 2007 (BST)

Questions related specifically to mapping The Netherlands

Cycleways in residential areas

I just started mapping and have the following question: Do we create cycleways (with highway=cycleway tags) when a (residential or tertiary) way has a seperate cycleway? Mapping these cycleways is topologically correct but 'clutters' the map and sometimes interferes with adjacent ways as can be seen here. --Lambertus 10:01, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

  • After mentioning this question on the IRC it was suggested that it is best to map the cycleways as acurately as possible. Any strange/unwanted rendering behavior should be fixed in the renderer. --Lambertus 14:55, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

HetWild vs Het Wild

By accident, I came across which says "HetWild" - should that be "Het Wild"? --Colin Marquardt 00:41, 18 October 2007 (BST)

  • Yes, this is already noted on AND-NL:_Todo (this is due to a small bug in the import script, no spaces are inserted between prefix, name and suffix). --Freek 07:05, 18 October 2007 (BST)

Doesn't the Netherlands have loads of Dykes? How are they being tagged? Tag:man_made=dyke ? Xapi query fetch all of them:*[man_made=dyke] ...doesn't reveal very many. Just this one, so I'm wondering if there's another tag being used for that -- Harry Wood 16:32, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Please take a look here (i don't know, where the question is to ask best to reach netherlands mappers) -- Schusch 14:20, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
