RE: tourist drives

I just noticed today that Google Maps has tourist route shields, eg:

In this example, however, only the initial shield is displayed (possibly
reflecting a paucity of road signage). In other locations, such as:


have far more shields displayed.

I have also been in touch with Nathan of Southern Downs regional council in
QLD who has given me 5 routes (1, 11, 12, 14, 21) so I'll put those in OSM.

I asked him if he knew of any other council reps who could give me data,
but I think it's going to be a matter of me contacting them myself. I also
got a CD of PDFs from Mike Keenan (spelling?) at QLD Main Roads which show
routes for many (most?) regional council areas of QLD. These maps have
tourist routes marked but they are at a very small scale so digitising will
cause errors... possibly.
