Notes on the map and the table

The route of the Ronde van Nederland is based on Openstreetmap.org data. The route is obtained from waymarkedtrail.org.
The most recent version of the route can be seen on Waymarkedtrails and Openstreetmap. The Ronde van Nederland route was downloaded from Waymarkedtrails on March 26, 2019.
Ronde van Nederland
waymarkedtrails.org openstreetmap.org
Heights have been added to Waymarkedtrails tracks using the website gpsvisualizer.com.

The exact locations of Cities, Towns, Villages and Hamlets are based on the locations that Openstreetmap or Google Maps gives. Usually this is somewhere in the center.

The distances in the table and on the map are an approximation!! This is because the actual routes from the Ronde van Nederland to the POI are not included.
The distance from a Point Of Interest (POI) to the Ronde van Nederland is the shortest distance to the Ronde van Nederland in a direct line.

The distances between two POIs (point 1 and point 2) are calculated as follows
Total distance = Distance point 1 to nearest point on the Ronde van Nederland + Distance point 2 to nearest point on the Ronde van Nederland + Distance between the two nearest points on the Ronde van Nederland

If points 1 and 2 are close to the Ronde van Nederland, the calculated distance is usually a good approximation.
If one of the two points is situated further from Ronde van Nederland, the actual distance may differ (significantly) from the calculated distance.

It is recommended to check the route from a starting point to the Ronde van Nederland and from the Ronde van Nederland to the end of a stage! This may e.g. by zooming in on the map and checking for a path or road from the starting point to the Ronde van Nederland and from the Ronde van Nederland to the end point.

The track of the Ronde van Nederland is from different sources and may include errors. Also, the recorded POIs may include errors! It is recommended to check the track and points before walking the path!
