Finished Result

Continuing from my previous post, I have submitted 8 new changesets (#63876977 #63877356 #63885737 #63885836 #63947501 #63947694 #63965928 #63976086) to add the aircraft parking lanes in klia2 (Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Terminal 2).

Additional Notes

  • Someone has suggested in the previous post to refine the aeroways (e.g. taxiways) in the airport and adding metadata to them (such as taxiway width), which I would be happy to do so. However (as OSM does not allow paths encoded by Bézier curves), I need to both improve and simplify the appearance of the curves to save space on the map database.
  • Someone added some footpaths inside the airport terminal which connects to AirAsia’s RedQ (headquarters building), but these paths are currently disconnected from the Gateway@klia2 (the nearby shopping plaza) and the gates.

Footpaths

  • I am also considering to add airport gate “bridges” to KLIA, which has been mapped in Singapore’s Changi Airport. Meanwhile, I am planning to extend the Citarum River (West Java, Indonesia) and add details to Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport and KLIA Terminal 1 before continuing on improving klia2.
