-====== Why isn't Kurviger using this road/ferry ====== +Thanks for visiting ​this page, the content has been moved [[web:faq:incorrect_routes|here]].
- +
-Unfortunatelythere are issues with some roads or ferries. Kurviger uses the [[http://​www.openstreetmap.org/​|OpenStreetMap]] (OSM) road data and relies on the tags of the roads in OSM. If there are no restrictions tagged to a road, the road will be used by Kurviger. If motorcycles are allowed on a given ferry, then the ferry should be routable. We also see issues with barriers from time to time.  +
- +
-You might also want to check your advanced routing options. If you ticked "avoid ferries",​ "avoid motorways",​ or "avoid toll roads",​ these avoidances are quite strong and Kurviger will make big detours to avoid them.  +
- +
-===== Ferries ===== +
- +
-Explicitly tagging allowance for motorcycles on ferries is often not done in OSM, therefore some ferries are not used. There are issues with streets that are forbidden for motorcyclists for some conditions. These roads are often tagged incorrect and therefore these roads produce errors.  +
- +
-Unfortunately,​ I cannot check and correct every road, so Kurviger and OSM is always happy if the community improves the data. If you find a road or ferry that is not routed correctly in Kurviger you can just go to OpenStreetMap and correct it. Only change values if you know the street and that the given tags are wrong!  +
-Kurviger uses a ferry if the tags are either ''​motorcycle=yes''​ or ''​motor_vehicle=yes''​. If you want you can also enter the [[https://​wiki.openstreetmap.org/​wiki/​Key:​duration|duration]]. The duration makes it more likely to that the ferry is actually used.  +
- +
-===== Barriers ===== +
- +
-Kurviger can access a barrier, like a ''​gate''​ or a ''​lift_gate''​ if you add ''​access=yes'',​ if the ''​access''​ tag is missing, Kurviger will not route through this gate. +
- +
-There are several tutorials on OSM available online, for example, [[http://​learnosm.org/​en/​beginner/​|Introduction to OSM]]. Your changes should appear after some days on Kurviger.  +
- +
-Thanks in advance for supporting the community and open data! +
