Coordinates

Recommended Posts

Is there a more precise way to get coordinates in FSX for things like VORs than estimating by their position on the map grid (since their coordinates do not show when clicking on them in the map)?

There are probably several ways to do it:If there is a transmitter object at the location, just slew to it and read the coordinates; I don't KNOW if all VORs have an associated object that would lend themselves to this simple solution but I would expect most of them would.An alternative is to decompile the defining bgl and read the coordinates from the xml code.A third option, if it reasonably represents a real-world VOR, get the data from one of the many real-world aviation sites.I guess it depends on how much accuracy you want and how much effort you want to put into it...Loyd
