An elevator (or lift) is used to travel vertically, providing passenger and freight access between pathways at different floor levels.

How to Map as a Node

Add a node node to the location of the elevator and tag it with highway=elevator.

How to Map as a Way

Inclined elevators are mapped as an open way way between both endpoints. In this case, the way itself is tagged with highway=elevator.

The endpoints can be tagged with their corresponding level=* and door=yes for indoor tagging.

An example how it can be mapped.

Tags to use in combination

  • access=yes/no/private/customers...
  • bicycle=yes/no
  • capacity:person=* – capacity (persons); please make sure to use capacity:person (singular) as key, because the other extensions of the key capacity are built like this, too. Some mappers do also use just capacity=* fort this.
  • contact:website=* – (such as for its current status)
  • fee=yes/no – does a fee have to be paid?
  • goods=yes/no/designated – a freight elevator? NOTE: For highway=* features, goods=* means legal access restriction for goods vehicles. Consider other tagging (e.g., handcart=*, handtruck=*) if the elevator is for goods carried by person, not by vehicle, to avoid confusion.
  • handrail=yes/no – is there a handrail?
  • indoor=* – within a building?
  • level=* – storey/floor; example: level=-1;0;1;2 – an elevator that goes all the way from the basement to the 2nd floor
