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 on buildings. These tags are relevant for wheelchair and indoor routing. Simple Indoor Tagging doesn't document any further details for doors except the door=* tag (and level=*), but since entrance=* indicates building entrances and exits, interior doors should use indoor=door instead of entrance=*.


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