    Hi @andersen.jason,

    This is an interesting idea. We don't have plans for anything like this at the moment, but I'll create an internal request for this to keep track.

    Thanks for sharing.

    +1. Maybe replicate some of the features openstreetmap uses including tagging?

    MOD EDIT: We're seeing requests for a "tag" feature on more than just waypoints. I've edited this post to accommodate that. This is a feature request for adding tags to your saved data for searching and sorting.

    Wouldn't adding #whatever #tags #youdlike in the waypoint/track/route NOTES field and allowing saved items search (on the web app) to search inside that field do the trick ?

    Just search for #firewoodNearby or #groupCamping etc. and they would all pop up....

    Please, please, please. I want to be able to tag and find routes and tracks by distance, elevation gain, geographical area, scenery/terrain (e.g., waterfall, viewpoint, forest, open desert, etc)

    Tags seem like an almost essential feature. And it seems like it would be easy to implement and backwards compatible. Please, Gaia, add a tagging feature!!!

    A little late on my response here, @ExGaiaAdmirer, but the web search functionality for saved items seems to be limited to the titles of said items (be they routes, waypoints, etc.). In other words, any notes added to a waypoint or route is not included in the search parameters.

    But I'm mostly here to say how much I would LOVE a tagging system. I really enjoy hiking barefoot when the weather is amenable, but certain trails are just not conducive to it. A simple tag system would make it easy to search through my favorite routes on a sunny day to find the right place to kick my shoes off.
