osmc:symbol tag provides a way to describe in a machine-readable way
route symbols in simple geometric shapes like they are found in some
European countries (and especially in Germany). The hiking map only
supports a subset of what is described on the Wiki page. In order to
be rendered on the map, the tag must have the following format:
waycolor must be there but is ignored for this map.
foreground may not
be empty, a second foreground is not supported.
be omitted. There is a
list of foreground and background symbols rendered in this map
Note: the older version of the map accepted the
foreground part to
be empty. This is no longer supported because the
should only be used to describe geometric shapes. Without the foreground
shape, the symbol describes a simple reference of the way and, for the
sake of clarity will be rendered as such. Local exceptions may be possible.
