Merci pour cette proposition ! Je carthographie le réseau pédestre depuis
plusieurs années et je suis convaicu de l'intérêt d'avoir ces données dans
OpenStreetMap !

Dans ma région j'ai carthographié les chemins pédestres d'une autre façon
encore. Comme je sais que les chemins sont entretenus par les communes,
j'ai créé une relation par commune. Cette relation regroupe tous les
chemins de cette commune, ceci afin de ne pas avoir trop de relations, ou
des chemins qui sont dans plusieurs relations.

Par exemple pour la commune d'Orsières :

Ou celle de Sembrancher :

J'espère que ce commentaire pourra vous être utile !

Meilleures salutations

Thank you for this proposal! I have been mapping the hiking network for
several years and I am convinced of the interest of having this data in

In my region I have mapped the hiking trails in another way. As I know that
the paths are maintained by the municipalities, I created a relationship
per municipality. This relation regroups all the paths of this
municipality, in order to have a reduced number of relations, or paths in
several relations.

For example for Orsières:

Or for Sembrancher:

Hope this comment can be useful to you!

Best regards
