A holding position (or holding point) is a location behind which aircraft (or vehicle) must stop in order to be safely clear of an intersecting runway or taxiway. They're usually found on taxiways near where they enter or cross a runway, but could also be found near the intersection of two taxiways or where two runways cross (in this case they may be known as a LAHSO point - Land And Hold Short Of)
Holding positions are not currently rendered on Mapnik. They're marked on the ground by a series of solid and dashed lines across the taxiway. The combination of lines indicates what type of holding point it is.
How to Map
Place a node at the location of the holding point on the way.
