GR footpaths

Cooperation with Grote Routepaden

We have explicit permission to use the reference GPX files provided by GroteroutePaden.be on their website for all GR routes in Flanders [1]. Of course, this data should not be blindly trusted, and differences between OSM and the official data should always be examined before changing the relation. To make this process easier, a series of Umap's is being set up to make comparison easily and to allow for making on-topic notes that can be discussed with the people at Grote Routepaden.
