Status: de facto

A runway is a defined rectangular area on a land aerodrome (aeroway=aerodrome) prepared for the landing and take-off of airplanes.

For helicopter landing pads, use aeroway=helipad.

For rocket landing pads, use aeroway=landingpad.

How to Map

Draw a single way along the centreline (middle) of the runway, from one threshold to the other, and add the aeroway=runway to it. Information on the width of a runway should be added using the width=* tag. Runway widths are standardized, typical values are 60m, 45m, 30m, 23m or 18m. Only use other values in special cases.

At one time, drawing the area of a runway and tagging with aeroway=runway was a somewhat common practice, but this has fallen out of favor. If you wish to map the area a runway takes up (or encounter this), the area can be retagged with the combination area:aeroway=runway (similar to area:highway=*).

Tags to use in combination

  • ref=* - the runway designator (for example "02/20" or "09L/27R"). List the smallest designator first (i.e. "04/22", not "22/04"). The two designators of a runway will always differ by 18 (180 degrees) and can have one letter appended (L, C or R). Only use other values in special cases.
  • length=* - can be used to hold the physical length of the runway surface, including blast-pad, displaced threshold, etc. This is generally more than the length actually available for takeoff and landing. Use meters, or specify units. ('100' for a hundred meters, or '200 ft' for 200 feet.
  • ele=* - should be used for the average elevation of the runway
  • surface=* - to be used to identify the physical makeup of the surface of the runway. Example: "paved" or "grass".
  • name=* - If the runway has a distinct name. Should not be a copy of ref. Examples: "Polderbaan" and "Aalsmeerbaan" at Amsterdam airport.

Additional information

Additional information can be specified using these keys:

Tag Description
Date source:date=* - If imported/updated from the FAA 56-day NASR database, this tag will contain the date the database became valid.
Incline Use the incline=[+|-]d.d% tag for the % incline of the runway. The direction of the way is from approach to departure. The incline is the elevation at the departure threshold minus the elevation at the approach threshold, divided by the distance between them.
Incline spec incline:spec=[+|-]d.d%: the % incline of the runway, as specified in the FAA airport diagram. According to the legend diagram, this is measured to the midpoint of the runway (instead of the far threshold) if the runway is >= 8000ft, and is only specified if the absolute value is >= 0.3%. Note that this tag is used only if the incline is in the same direction as the runway. Otherwise, the reverse_incline tag is used (see reverse_incline:spec=* below).
Landing Facility Site Number The FAA's Landing Facility Site Number for the airport with which the runway associated should be tagged with FAA:LFSN=*. There is generally no reason to edit this value - it is used to refer back to the associated aeroway=aerodrome node or way and the FAA database for synchronization of imports. Example: "01818.*A" is the LFSN for LAX.
Reverse incline reverse_incline:spec=[+|-]d.d%: the % incline of the runway as specified in the FAA airport diagram, in the reverse direction of the OSM way. See incline:spec=* above.
Source source=* - Source(s) of information present in tags, semi-colon-delimited if necessary. "FAA" indicates at least some information from one or more FAA databases or imports. Often combined with an imagery tag to indicate the imagery with which the boundary was drawn.
Source_ref source_ref=* - Key to source documents. Example: when source=FAA, you may see source_ref=nnnnnAD, which indicates the document number of the FAA Airport Diagram, which are at http://aeronav.faa.gov/d-tpp/vvvv/''nnnnn''AD.PDF where vvvv is the version number (incremented every 56 days).
Width Use the width=* tag to identify the width of the runway.
Lit Add lit=* to indicate whether the runway is lit. If lit=yes is used, edge-lights are assumed to be present. Add lit:centre=yes to indicate the presence of centreline lights.

Lifecycle

Main article: Lifecycle_prefix
stage tagging notes
construction aeroway=construction
construction=runway
A runway under construction.
In operation aeroway=runway An operational runway
disused disused:aeroway=runway A runway not in use, which could be brought back into operation.
abandoned abandoned:aeroway=runway Where the runway fallen into serious disrepair and which could only be put back into operation with expensive effort.
No longer present on the ground Remove from OSM or tag no:aeroway=runway Where the runway is not evident on the ground it should be removed from OSM. If there is a danger of it being re-entered from old information then no:aeroway=runway signifies that it is no loner there.
