Two Questions About MakeRunways Data


Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

I'm looking at the output files from MakeRwys.exe.

In the RC5.CSV there is a Threshold Offset value. Please can you explain what this is?

Also for the Taxiways file T5.CSV the description of the lines is:

ICAO,TaxiwayName,MinimumWidthMetres,PointList ...

In a typical line I can see some single numbers highlighted below. I can't work out what they might be.

KBUR,,15.24,34.195736,-118.359337,5,15.24,34.196102,-118.359322,1,0.00

There also seems to be more than one width and the last number is always 0. Could you please explain a bit more about the data in this file?

Thanks,

Paul

It's the offset (i.e. distance) of the threshold from the end of the runway. It's a parameter in the scenery files, often zero but not always.

The pointlist format is defined in the Text document included in the ZIP with makerunways, just below where you got the first description of the format from. The taxi type numbers are listed in a table below that.

The CSV files are to Radar Contact specifications, for the forthcoming version 5 of that program.

Regards

Pete
