This is a list of suggestions for how to enter and tag pedestrian related data into OSM. The different tags are already documented on their own pages.

Sidewalks

There are two main ways to map the sidewalks : on the street itself or as a separate way.

Context On the street As separate way
Pedestrian sidewalk.svg
Way A.png
Way A : highway=* + sidewalk=both
Way A B Cdown.png

Way A : highway=*

Way B : highway=footway + footway=sidewalk

Way C : highway=footway + footway=sidewalk

Pedestrian sidewalk right.svg
Way A.png
Way A : highway=* + sidewalk=right
Way A B.png

Way A : highway=*

Way B : highway=footway + footway=sidewalk

Pedestrian sidewalk left.svg
Way A.png
Way A : highway=* + sidewalk=left
Way A Bdown.png

Way A : highway=*

Way B : highway=footway + footway=sidewalk

Pedestrian no sidewalk.svg
Way A.png
Way A : highway=* + foot=no

Pedestrian ways independent from a street

Depending on the nature of the pedestrian way :

highway=* Comment
pedestrian Pedestrian roads in shopping and residential areas
footway For designated footpaths
path Non-specific footpaths
cycleway For designated cycleways
bridleway For horses
steps Steps

Detailed description : Key:highway

Crossings

A crossing between a pedestrian way and a highway can be represented as a point (highway=crossing) and as a line (footway=crossing).

Access restrictions

Default access restrictions are already documented for the pedestrians on each highway type. However, it is sometimes necessary to add another access restriction : the tags below allow to do it for the pedestrians.

foot=* Comment
yes Pedestrians are allowed
designated Way specially designated for pedestrian use
permissive Pedestrians have no legal right but the owner allow them on this way
no Pedestrians are not allowed

All values : Key:access.
