How to map

Draw a ways and add the aeroway=taxiway to it. Additional information can be specified using these keys:

Tag Description
Reference Use the ref= tag for the name of the taxiway.
Surface The surface= tag can be used to identify the physical makeup of the surface of the taxiway. Example: "paved" or "grass".

Use the aeroway=holding_position at holding positions on the taxiway.


Stage Tagging Notes
Proposed aeroway=proposed
A proposed taxiway which is very likely to be constructed. This tag should not be used for pure aspiration. Alternatively use proposed:aeroway=taxiway
Construction aeroway=construction
A taxiway under construction. Alternatively use construction:aeroway=taxiway
In operation aeroway=taxiway An operational taxiway
Disused aeroway=taxiway
A taxiway not in use, which could be brought back into operation. Alternatively use disused:aeroway=taxiway
Abandoned abandoned:aeroway=taxiway When it is unusable or has been reused. Alternatively use abandoned:aeroway=taxiway. For example abandoned:aeroway=taxiway + highway=cycleway
