now a Question to the Specialist on Tuning Style-Files for better Routing.
Is it possible, to query curvy road to give more curvy roads a bonus an a less curvy road a malus?
My wish is a routable motorcycle map with preference on twisty & scenery roads.
What is this?
-2 highway=* and motorroad=yes
-1 highway=* and routing through big urban towns
+3 highway=unclassified or highway=road
Anyone here, who could help me?
Thanks a lot.
Just as a note: highway=road can be anything, from a path up to a motorway (the latter being slightly more unlikely :)).
Oh yes, for a Motorcyclist it’s funny to drive on “anything Road”. That’s why i want to prefer such “highways” in Garmin zûmo’s Routing.
I doubt it is very funny to drive on a foot- or cycleway or over a narrow rocky path. But as you can’t influence Garmin’s routing directly maybe you can just reverse the highway importance via the road_class or road_speed of the style file?
“road_class” is surely a good starting point. But you need to get a measure of curvyness. And I doubt that mkgmap or other tools can do that presently.
Wish there was a tool who could calculate the sinuosity, http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Routing#Sinuosity
How about inclines?
For my cyclemap I favour bike paths and unclassified roads by making the road_class higher and also the road_speed.
Thanks. With die road_speed i try to optimize. But with the road_class there is nothing possible, because we need the exclude-switch “highway” with normal function.
Motorcyclists drive on Highway to the twisty scenery roads and then set the switch “exclude highways” … and then: Fun.
Have a nice Day.
My though was to query tagged road-signs like this:
But i think, the signs are not tagged to the highway.
Have a nice Day.
