Description

Downloaded 10/22/07 from http://www.bts.gov/publications/national_transportation_atlas_database/2007/. Queryed out ND via attributes and reprojected in ArcMap. Brian Bieber - NDDOT The Airport Runways database is a geographic dataset of runways in the United States and US territories containing information on the physical characteristics of the runways. The 5585 runways in the dataset are runways associated with the 20362 airports in the companion airport data set. This geospatial data is derived from the FAA's National Airspace System Resource Aeronautical Data Product (Effective 18 January 2007).

Summary

This data provides users with information about the runway locations and attributes for national and regional analysis applications.

Credits

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) develops and maintains the textual data from which this geospatial layer was derived.

Data Quality 

Scope of quality information
Resource level  dataset




Data quality report - Conceptual consistency
Measure description
All linear features in this data set are straight lines. RWY_ID is the unique identifier for each record in the dataset. There may be more than one runway (RWY_ID) located at a single airport. Airports can be individually identified by the landing facility location identifier (LOCID) or by the site number (SITE_NO) attribute. RITA/BTS quality checks were to cross reference the place dataset with the state dataset, to determine that the spatial data and attribute data were accurate





Data quality report - Completeness omission
Measure description
Landing facilities in this database consist of those identified in the NFDC 5527 database to be either publicly owned, or privately owned but open to the public, or owned by the U.S. military. The following landing facilities have been excluded: private landing facilities not open to the public, glider ports and ultra light landing facilities, as well as landing facilities that do not have a current LOCID assigned to them.





Data quality report - Quantitative attribute accuracy
Measure description
Data were obtained from the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) National Airspace System Resource Aeronautical Data. This product was published by the Aeronautical Information Services with an Effective Date of 18 January 2007.



Quantitative test results
Value unknown




Data quality report - Absolute external positional accuracy
Measure description
Horizontal positional accuracy is based on coordinate data provided in the FAA National Airspace System Resource Aeronautical Dataset (Effective 18 January 2007). These coordinate data identify the approximate location of the Airport Reference Point (ARP) as reported by the landing facility on the NFDC (National Flight Data Center) 5010 form. According to NFDC guidelines, the location of the ARP should be reported to a horizontal accuracy of one arc second of latitude and longitude. However, the accuracy of these reported coordinates are not verified by FAA.



Quantitative test results
Value unknown




Lineage 

Process step
When the process occurred 2007-01-02
Description
The creation of this geospatial data layer was completed by RITA/BTS in February 2007. This Shapefile was derived from textual data on the FAA National Airspace System Resource Aeronautical Data CDROM, effective 18 January 2007. The Apt.txt file was converted into three files using the UNIX command grep. The runway table structure was built in Oracle that followed the structure of the facility runway data described in the Apt_rf.txt file. A control file was built for the desired runway data structure and SQL Loader was used to load the data into the database. The degrees, minutes, and seconds' columns were converted into decimal degrees and ESRI products were used to create the runway linear dataset.
