Exporting gate Lat/Long

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Does anyone know of a program that will extract an airport's gate ID and Lat/Long for all gates at all airports in FS02? ThanksTerry

That's a staggering amount of information. It wouldn't be too hard to come up with something that could pull this out of an AFCAD file for an individual airport. It's all coded in the "Positions" data in the AFCAD .txt file. From a quick glance, the Longitude and Latitude are the first 2 entries, relative to the airport reference point. Gate numbers are coded in the hexidecimal word at the end of the line. The other numbers are radius and heading for each parking space.How are you planning to use this? If you are just interested in having the data for occasional reference, then figuring out how to extract it from AFCAD should be sufficient. If you're trying to come up with an automated tool for something (like jetway scenery, maybe?) then you would need to go a step further and pull the stuff out of the scenery files directly.
