The US OSM community and working groups have encountered issues distinguishing social and official trails in OSM and they have outlined a trail tagging schema to identify official trails. A pilot study with the state of Washington will investigate how OSM and trail datasets curated and published by government entities can complement each other for greater enrichment of OSM trails. The first phase involves analyzing the compatibility of OSM trails with these curated datasets, comparing GIS trail data from different sources. If highly compatible, a data pipeline will be created to enrich the GIS data with attributes from the curated data. This will result in a more comprehensive resource for outdoor enthusiasts to download and utilize, enhancing their experience.
