Hello, apologies for the burst of questions. Last one.
When mapping routes with all vehicle prohibitions (including bicycles), I have often added bicycle=dismount as suggested by http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Road_signs_in_the_United_Kingdom#Vehicular_type_restrictions . I've also used it where a very short footway (without restrictive barriers) allows a significant shortcut for cyclists. However, I've noticed that bicycle=dismount means gets rendered as a cycleway on cycle.travel . Am I better off just tagging bicycle=no and trusting that cycle routers such as cycle.travel will be clever enough to direct cyclists to walk their bikes along pedestrian paths where there is a significant time saving?
Does the 'find photo' link just search for nearby photos uploaded on geograph.org.uk? If I wished to add new photos of cycle routes, is the best method to add them to Geograph? How often does cycle.travel check for new photos?
Hi, I'm fairly new to using this site, though it comes highly recommended. Apologies for asking three separate questions in one day. No more I promise!
Roughly how often are the maps/routing updated to account for change in the OSM data?
