I have a given table in postgreSQL with OSM data which is used for routing purposes in Java with PGRouting. There exist two columns which I don't understand. They belong to osm2po. They are labeled with "flags" and "clazz". I know, that flags describe the kind of road. It means, whether it is driveable by car, bike,... The problem now is, that I do not understand the meanings of the values in the column clazz. I just know that they also describe the road type. Can anybody explain, what the values like 12, 15, 31,... mean? Does a documentation exist where the meaning of the values is written down?
The file osm2po.config, which can be obtained from the downloads tab on the osm2po page, contains a table with four column, defined as:
1) concurrent order
2) class (1-127)
3) default speed in kmh
4) allowed transportation type (optional) - since v4.5.30
And here are some sample rows, which I think explain where the 12, 51, etc, you are seeing comes from (in the second column).
wtr.tag.highway.motorway = 1, 11, 120, car wtr.tag.highway.motorway_link = 1, 12, 30, car wtr.tag.highway.service = 1, 51, 5, car|bike wtr.tag.highway.living_street = 1, 63, 7, car|bike|foot
It does say that the class can be in the range 1-127, and there are only 23 different values in that config table, so I trust that covers all the ones you are seeing?
Following comment from OP, here are the the official osm highway docs
As for the flags, I just wrote up a little explanation here. I wish I would have figured the flags out a while ago! Very useful, and a clever encoding.
From the osm2po.config file:
road type clazz motorway 11 motorway_link 12 trunk 13 trunk_link 14 primary 15 primary_link 16 secondary 21 secondary_link 22 tertiary 31 tertiary_link 32 residential 41 road 42 unclassified 43
