An Instrument Landing System (ILS) is a system that works by sending radio waves downrange from the runway end, with aircraft that intercept it using the radio waves to guide them onto the runway.

The system has the two transmitters Localizer and Glide slope.

They are marked with localizer=yes or glideslope=yes.

How to map

Set a node node where the transmitter is and add airmark=beacon + beacon:type=ILS
