yet more on highway=footway

Posted by Dion Dock on 5 August 2009 in English (English)

From an email:

I've typically been trying to mark paved paths has highway=footway, unpaved walking paths as highway=path and signed bike lanes as highway=cycleway. If I'm feeling extra energetic, I'll also tag with bicycle=yes/no, and so on. My inspiration is the pictures on the OSM wiki, http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Features#Highway, particularly http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dpath and http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dfootway.

Any others in Oregon agree with me?

This guy may be from California, but he totally agrees nonetheless.

Sorry, not to knock the other 49 states. :) I'm under the impression that the various regions tend to do things similarly based on what the local map looks like. It seems pretty difficult to get the entire state/country/world to agree on the same standards. Maybe that's another diary entry.
