How to map

ElementWay.png

Add a way way along the length of the steps with the tag highway=steps on it.

Indicate which direction the steps go up or down by using the tag incline=up — when the direction of the way points upwards — or the tag incline=down, respectively. By convention, the direction of the way should preferably point uphill, but the key incline=* should always be added to the way (see the talk page for more details).

In the past, the tag direction=up/down was used instead of the tag incline=up/down, but this was depreciated since the key direction=* is used for several other purposes.

Tags to use in combination

  • step_count=* can be added to indicate the number of steps.
  • handrail=* can be used to specify where the handrail.
  • tactile_paving=yes/(no)/incorrect if there is a paving on both ends of the steps that can be found with a blind person's stick.
  • tactile_writing=yes/no indicates whether there is tactile writing available at the handrail(s) of the steps.
    • Note: If the handrail(s) is/are mapped separately with barrier=handrail, the key should be added on to this feature.
    • Note: If possible, the type of tactile writing which is available should always be specified, for example with tactile_writing:braille:lg=yes, see tactile_writing=* for details.
  • surface=* indicates the surface.
  • ramp=* indicates whether a ramp is available.
  • level=* the floor levels connected or passed through by the stairs (e.g. at stations)
    • level=0;1 between the ground floor and the 1st floor
  • width=* width in meters
  • name=* add if the steps have a special name

Escalator

highway=steps + conveying=yes/forward/backward/reversible

You can also specify the direction of the escalator: incline=up/down. See conveying=* for details.
