London public transport tagging scheme/TfL Barrier-Free

Jump to: navigation, search

These are the standard elements used to model the indoor parts of the stations. For the entrances and all structures on the surface please see the London public transport tagging scheme

For this part of the tagging scheme, the same rules apply for all the different modes of transport.

Nodes

Elevators

These are the elevator nodes. They represent how the elevator connects walkways at different levels. For the elevator as building part or landmark please look at the area class lift shaft below.

highway elevator
level semicolon separated numbers the level numbers of the connected levels
indoor yes only if the structure is entirely underground or inside a building

Ways

Connecting ways

Key Values Notes

highway footway
level number the level number assigned by the operator
tunnel yes only if the structure is underground
indoor yes only if the structure is underground or inside a building

Steps

highway steps
step_count number TfL uses this information for barrier-free access options
incline up or down

indoor yes only if the structure is underground or inside a building

Escalators

conveying forward, backward, or reversible
incline up or down
level semicolon separated numbers the level numbers of the connected levels

Areas

Platforms

Key Values Notes
TFL Rail roundel.svg Overground roundel.svg Underground.svg DLR roundel.svg Tramlink roundel.svg Buses roundel.svg
public_transport platform
railway platform
area yes
ref number the number of the track if and only if the platform has one platform edge
level number the level number assigned by the operator
subway yes only if the structure is underground
tunnel yes only if the structure is underground
indoor yes only if the structure is underground or inside a building

These structures shall be modeled by ways if they are simple polygons and by multipolygons if they have holes. In this case we recommend to map the platform edges explicitly as way with railway=platform_edge.

Walkable areas (e.g. halls)

Stations as well as underground stations often have halls of substantial width. These are modeled as areas with the following tags:

indoor corridor
area yes
level number the level number assigned by the operator
tunnel yes only if the structure is underground

These structures shall be modeled by ways if they are simple polygons and by multipolygons if they have holes.

The walkable areas inside buildings, esp. subway stations shall be connected to each other by footways to indicate which elements actually are connected. These areas and ways shall be connected to the rest of the city only through designated entrances.

Lift shafts

These structures represent the room occupied by the elevator or group of elevators in its entirety. The information what this elevator connects goes to the elevator node and not this shaft.

bulding:part elevator
level number the level number of all levels where the shaft occupies space
