Taxiways and runways are represented only by their letter or numeric labels. When more than three are present, the others are given numerical designators -close- to their geographical orientation.
It is important to note that in many cases, ATC responsibility ends with the transition from taxiway to ramp. The EGCC diagram has numerous “shadow boxes” with important information such as touchdown zone elevation TDZ and localizer frequencies, for example.
The centerline lighting, white until ‘ remaining, then alternating red and white, warning of the reduced length, and ultimately all red. This diagram is smaller, more complex, and a bit more difficult to read. The hold short lines indicate the aircraft has just departed the runway and should not stop until after crossing the hold short line fully.
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. 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.
Again, as in the KATL case, you can see that the other runways cjarts referred to as 26R and 26L, and the farthest south runway is The quality of diagrams varies throughout the world, with some providing a general overview of the airport and others more detailed. Runway markings are always white.

Touchdown zone elevation, lighting, and notes are included just as in the UK diagram, but presented differently. 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 may also be used for taxiing aircraft and in some cases for parking aircraft. 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. Briefly in the image above you can see runway edge identifier lights that are white, turning to yellow as the departure end of the runway gets closer.
By Tom Seeley Purpose: The portrayal of runway markings and orientation is also a faithful representation of the real-world airport.
At major airports each airline may have its own “ramp control” and may have a tower-like facility to control movement on its ramp. 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. Most have yellow centerline markings to facilitate remaining in the center of, and following the taxiway in reduced visibility.
A RUNWAY is differentiated from other surfaces on the airport by being the only surface an aircraft other than a helicopter either lands on or takes off from.
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. Upon completion, the pilot should have a clear understanding of the elements of an airport diagram and how to use it.
This designation doesn’t mean there is no movement, but that either the pilot or some other authority assumes responsibility, or both.
Runway Lighting Briefly in the image above you can see runway edge identifier lights that are white, turning to yellow as the departure end of the runway jatl closer. The UK diagram shows these quite clearly, while the US diagram makes them a little more difficult to see. Chaets of these diagrams, regardless of how colorful or easy to read, provide basic information for navigating around an airport, and supplemental information which is either critical or informational.
These are often referred to as “non-movement” areas.

It is approaching an intersection with Taxiway Delta. Runways are always designated and normally marked by a one or two number label, loosely associated with their compass bearing. The Atlanta-Hartsfield diagram is representative of most U. Runways, Taxiways and Ramps: However these are only available by subscription. These can be found in the various charting providers NOS, Jeppesen but are also largely available online. You can see from these identifiers that one end of the runway is always the “reciprocal” of the other, or ?
You must join, but registration is free and the site is very thorough. They have different marking from runways, and are always identified by letters, with numbers if necessary.
Taxiways are designated surfaces provided at airports to enable aircraft to reposition from the runway cjarts their final position on the field, or vice versa. Black numbers on a yellow background indicate directions to the runway s represented by the numbers. One significant difference is taxiway hold points: Taxiway markings are always yellow.
