This data must act as a tool for the municipality for case management, planning and reporting, ensuring good administration of outdoor recreation areas by providing important basic information for efforts to map and value outdoor recreation areas and acting as important basic information for work on municipal path and trail plans, ensuring good mapping data for rescue activities and callouts and acting as a basis for derived outdoor recreation products. When data is gathered in a national database, all users of the dataset will have the same starting point that can form a basis in other products. The dataset is suitable as a basis at all levels of planning and building work; in national plans, county, regional and municipal plans, building projects, RAV analyses and impact assessment. The geometry in particular is important to indicate where hiking routes and trails run. In addition, attributes such as special route type, route type and route importance can indicate more about the kind of route and/or trail registered.
