The line of demarcation between taxiway and ramp is normally a broken single or double yellow line. They have different marking from runways, and are always identified by letters, with numbers if necessary.
The hold short lines indicate the aircraft has just departed the runway and should not charst until after crossing the hold short line fully.
However these are only available by subscription. Runway markings are always white. Runways are always designated and normally marked by a one or two number label, loosely associated with their compass bearing. Again, as in the KATL case, you can see that the other runways are referred to as 26R and 26L, and the farthest south runway is Runway Lighting Briefly in the image above you can see runway edge identifier lights that are white, turning to yellow as the departure chrats of the runway gets closer.
Taxiway markings are always yellow. Black letters on a yellow background are directions to the taxiway represented by the letter. It denotes taxiways via replicas of the taxiway markings you would see looking out the cockpit window, yellow against a black background.
At the other end of taxiways are “Ramps” which are not really ramps at all, but different surfaces that denote where the taxiway ends and the terminal or gate area begins. In the second, the aircraft is on a taxiway approaching a runway intersection. By Tom Seeley Purpose: When more than three are present, the others are given numerical designators -close- to their geographical orientation. This designation doesn’t mean there is no movement, but that either the pilot or some other authority assumes responsibility, or both.
In this case, the solid lines of the hold short line are toward the aircraft, and it cannot proceed past this point unless a clearance to do so has been received. The portrayal of runway markings and orientation is also a faithful representation of the real-world airport.

Looking at the images above, the first shows the aircraft on Taxiway “Delta Two” denoted by the yellow numbers on a black field. Skip to main content. Briefly in the image above you can see runway edge identifier lights that are white, charrs to yellow as the departure end of the runway gets closer. The UK diagram shows these quite clearly, while the US diagram makes them a little more difficult to see.
You can see from these identifiers that one end of the runway is always the “reciprocal” of the other, or ? Taxiways and runways are represented only by their letter or numeric labels. These are often referred to as “non-movement” areas.
A partial example from the fold-out for KATL is reproduced below the full diagram. The centerline lighting, white until ‘ chafts, then alternating red and white, warning of the reduced length, and ultimately all red. You must join, but registration is free and the site is very thorough. On the other hand it should be noted that Jeppesen provides larger fold-out diagrams for many high-density airports as well as “low visibility taxi route” charts and these are much easier to read and interpret.
The Atlanta-Hartsfield diagram is representative of most U.
This diagram is smaller, more complex, and a bit more difficult to read. The solid and dashed black lines indicate a “hold short” location of a taxiway approaching a runway, where you must stop if the solid line is nearest you, or which you must cross if exiting a runway and the dashed lines are nearest you. Runways may also be used for taxiing aircraft and in some cases for parking aircraft. This segment will provide basic understanding of airport diagrams to enable pilots to navigate safely and correctly at various airfields.
Most have yellow centerline markings to facilitate remaining in the center of, and following the taxiway in reduced visibility. Taxiways are designated surfaces provided at airports to enable aircraft to reposition from the runway to their final position on the field, or vice versa.
The quality of diagrams varies throughout the world, with some providing a general overview of the airport and others more detailed. One significant difference is taxiway hold points: Black numbers on a yellow background indicate directions to the runway s represented by the numbers. In the upper right of the image you can see all blue taxiway lighting.
You can see that this diagram is quite detailed and colorized.
Upon completion, the iatl should have a clear understanding of the elements of an airport diagram and how to use it. These can be found in the various charting providers NOS, Jeppesen but are also largely available online. At major airports each airline may have its own “ramp control” and may have a tower-like facility to control movement on its ramp.
Look between runways 27L and 27R at taxiways Kilo and Lima However despite these sometime subtle differences, either diagram will facilitate on-airport navigation. Runways, Taxiways and Ramps: Pilots chagts movement at high-density airports should anticipate such instructions and be prepared to read them back, then follow them as instructed, especially during periods of heavy traffic. The signs in the images above are the universal signs used to denote directions to taxiways and runways.
A RUNWAY is differentiated from other surfaces on chharts airport by being the only surface an aircraft other than a helicopter either lands on or takes off from. Touchdown zone elevation, lighting, and notes are included just as in the UK diagram, but presented differently.
