The A380 is a category 6 aircraft, and I know the parameters for that are 80m x 80m. What are the other gate category sizes?

For the gate you also have to take length into account.
At ARN we have a 65m wide gate (gate 69) which has a limit of 61 m length
so it cannot take a B777, unless the tower close the taxyway behind it, which they usually do as the taxyway goes nowhere.

Awsome. Thanks for the info.

Wingtip clearances are done in one of two ways. A straight 25-Feet or the taxilane dimension method which is Wingspan * .1 + 10. At long linear locations I've seen them use the taxiway method which is the Wingspan * .2 +10.
