Review of Africa Highway Tags

Posted by Palolo on 26 April 2017 in English (English).

In Ethiopia most of the population lives in rural areas outside of towns and villages. The existing OSM road tagging is inadequate to adequately document the functional use of a road.

The Africa Highway tags are a good start but do not have a tag that is appropriate for rural residential roads.

At the State of the Map Africa 2017 http://sotmafrica.org/ we will be discussing the tagging for roads in an Africa context. #SOTMAfrica
