[Talk-GB] Public Rights of Way in Oxfordshire and Hampshire

Quick response.

It appears that the tool only accepts as mapped rights of way mapped with
some local identifier, rather than those with a designation tag. Hampshire
is one of the better mapped places in England and Wales.  have no problem
with us eventually adding identifiers for PRoW, but surely at this stage we
really should be focussing on finding and mapping paths which are not on
OSM at all, and/or getting designation tags on those already mapped but
without them.

I personally do not find a tool which focuses on identifiers useful for
this task.
