My research tells me ‘unclassified’ means classified as ‘unclassified‘,
which is a class of road in the public road system.
I respectfully disagree.
That is only the case where a country has a class of roads they label or
call "Unclassified". In Alaska and Thailand, where I do the bulk of my
mapping, an unclassified highway is just that, it is a highway having no
classification. I consider it higher in the hierarchy than a residential
and lower than a tertiary, although some opinions may differ. Whether paved
or unpaved makes no difference. As long as it connects towns or hamlets in
a reasonable manner, then it is an unclassified highway.
