The door=* tag allows us to describe the type of door being mapped. The door=* tag must be used in conjunction with the entrance=* tag. These tags are relevant for wheelchair and indoor routing.


The door=* tag must be placed on the node node which represents the door. Several values allow for distinguishing door types.
