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 Airports database is a geographic point database of aircraft landing facilities in the United States and U.S. Territories. Attribute data is provided on the physical and operational characteristics of the landing facility, current usage including enplanements and aircraft operations, congestion levels and usage categories. There are 20490 airport landing facilities in this dataset. This geospatial data is derived from the FAA's National Airspace System Resource Aeronautical Data Product (Effective 18 Jaunary 2007).

Summary

The dataset provides users with information about airport locations and attributes and can be used 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 point records in this dataset are represented by a single coordinate pair and two unique feature identifiers -- the landing facility location identifier (LOCID) and the site number (SITE_NO) assigned by the FAA. 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


Data quality report - Quantitative attribute accuracy
Measure description
Airport attributes were obtained from the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) National Airspace System Resource Aeronautical Data and the Office of Airline Information (OAI) Enplanement Data. The FAA Data was published by the Aeronautical Information Services with an Effective Date of 18 January 2007. All records were assigned the accurate state name, state abbreviation and FIPS code.



Quantitative test results
Value unknown


Evaluation method
N/A





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. The records were loaded into a GIS and checked for any unusual or obviously erroneous locations.

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 separate files using the UNIX command grep. The airport table structure was built in Oracle. It followed the structure of the landing facility data described in the Apt_rf.txt file. A control file was built for the desired airport 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 airport point file.
