|Tools for this tag|
Some steps take up a significant areas - or mappers are interested in super-accurate mapping - so this tag was developed to precisely map this, in addition to highway=steps way tagged through their middle.
How to map
- If it's a simple steps area, just draw outline around it, and add tag area:highway=steps.
- If it's a more complicated one, draw an outline around it, draw all inner parts, then select all elements and make a multipolygon relation from it. Add tag area:highway=steps to multipolygon.
- Remember about joining area's edges to surrounding buildings, walls, etc.
Tagging mistakes to avoid
- Don't create an area:highway=steps area without also creating a linear highway=steps way along the centerline of the footway.
