How to map

To map a pedestrian crossing, place a node Node within the way representing the road, and set this highway=crossing tag on the node (not on the way). It's a good idea to further classify the crossing with the tag crossing=* which more accurately describes specific types of pedestrian crossings. More combination tags are described on the Key:crossing page.

footway=crossing and cycleway=crossing are sometimes used on ways which lead from a sidewalk to the crossing node (The node which has this highway=crossing tag)

Similar tags

railway=crossing used where a footway, railway=level_crossing where a road crosses a railway.
