Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi, in OSM of my hometown I found the abbriviations ÜL and K. Seam to be part of a local street which is also part of an official biketour of Oberösterreich (R4 or R12 means Radweg Nr. 4 or 12). As Ü is the socalled 'Umlaut u' this should be a German abbriviation I do not understand besides some others. So you know what this mean or do you know the source of the map? Erich

Always try to provide a permalink to the area in question.

I did find two bicycle routes. One called Über drüber Landpartie which has the ref ÜL and one called Kultur-Radweg which has the ref K. These references just serve as identifiers and are mostly locally unique. But you will only see them on the map with the OpenCycleMap (in German Radfahrerkarte) layer activated. The standard layer doesn't show bicycle routes.

Thanks a lot! You are right, the bike routes are created by the tourist board of the village. So what I learned now is to search by ref at openstreetmap.org when no legend is connected to the map by the app. Thank you. Erich
