Security Zone
Status: Proposed (under way)
Proposed by: brycenesbitt
Tagging: security_zone=*
Applies to: node, area
Definition: A named restricted area, such as those found in airports and marine terminals
Drafted on: 2015-06-11

The name of the zone should match the name used by the facility. Names should be consistent within a given facility, but need not otherwise use a common vocabulary. Possible names include:

The usual rules for access=* tags still apply. If the tagged item is accessible only to airport employees it should be tagged access=private or simply left off the map. If the feature is not behind a checkpoint of some sort, do not use this tag.
