- a place where helicopters can land.
Often a large circle with a large H painted on it visible from the air. It might be part of an aerodrome or heliport but can also be found in grounds of hospitals, on top of major hotel buildings, business/political headquartes and similar locations.
The tag should only be used for infrastructure that is purpose-built and/or regularly used for this purpose. See the differentiation section for emergency landing sites.
How to Map
Add a node at the center of the helipad and add the aeroway=helipad tag, or create an outline of the helipad with the same tag.
