applies to the difficulty classification of its mountain hiking trails:

I would consider it safe to apply a similar approach to long ways with
different surface and/or smoothness conditions on different parts on a
provisional basis. You could add e fixme for later mappers.

BTW thai is one aspect of mapping where taking Mapillary photos really
