Today's updates

Added some religious places in and around San Claudio. Also added two recycling poi's.

Removed a double entry for Llampaya as place.

Copied my first gps trace into OSM with some helpful pointers from the community. Thanks for that!

I struggle sometimes to adequately classify highways. Many seem to struggle in the area that I am looking at because many are "unclassified". Added Ag├╝era.

I also need to find out if you can map various classifications over the same highway. Eg. I would like to somehow map the El Camino Primitivo a Santiago at some point.

Be aware that 'unclassified' does not mean, no one has classified the road yet, this is what highway=road is for. Unlcassified is actually an actual classification, being the lowest level of road in a country. A lot of people get confused about this since the naming scheme is somewhat ambiguous. Check the wiki page for highway=unclassified for more details on this.

Thanks. I did look at the writeup on the wiki, but after reading it a second time, it is clearer to me now.
