Introduction

I would like to propose this unified set of symbols covering and differentiating between differing types of aerodrome. I have avoided using things like the letter 'H' for the heliport in order to prevent potential confusion with hospital and stuck to silhouettes to keep the symbols as international as possible -- Batchoy 12:11, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

Comments

  • The class= tag used to be used for roads, and got phased-out as being too generic. How about using something aerodrome-specific for the tag name (e.g. aerodrome_type=..) instead? Ojw 21:07, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

  • I approve this proposal, as nobodies given a good reason not to. The symbols need tweaking I think though. Check discussion area) Ben. 04:43 23 Decemeber 2006
