I map everything as long as it’s waymarked. If a variant is waymarked and named, it belongs to the route. It is the hierarchy I am not sure how to tag exactly. I see type=route in th Netherlands and type=superroute in Germany for the same type of hierarchy, and both seem to display fine on waymarkedtrails. What is a type=superroute needed for then?
