How to map
- Create a closed way around the extent of the spaceport area (often co-incident with a barrier of some kind).
- For complex boundaries create a relation:multipolygon and add the tags to the relation.
- If the area of the spaceport is not clear, use a node at the center.
A spaceport area may contain one or more lauch pads, landing pads, hangars and other features which should be mapped separately:
|Launch pad for rockets or other spacecraft. Also see military=launchpad and man_made=launch_pad||aeroway=launchpad|
|Landing pad for rockets or other spacecraft - rarely used||aeroway=landingpad|
|Hangar for aircraft or spacecraft||aeroway=hangar|
|Runway for landing of some types of spacecraft, not necessarily at a spaceport, see list of Space Shuttle landing sites. There are also hybrid spaceports.||aeroway=runway|
For remains of no longer active spaceports, or those under construction, see Lifecycle_prefix, for example: construction:aeroway=spaceport
