Description:

Abstract: 

A geographic data set of runways in the United States and US territories containing information on the physical characteristics of the runways. The 8550 runways in the data set are supposed to include all of the runways associated with the 19793 airports in the companion airport data set.  This data is a re-issue of 1999 data.

 

            Purpose: 

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

 

Time_Period_of_Content:

            Currentness_Reference: This is 1999 data and reflects ground conditions and annual summaries for the year collected.

Data_Quality_Information:

 

Attribute_Accuracy:

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:  Data were obtained from the

     Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) National Flight

     Data Center (NFDC) 5010 landing facilities data

     (January 1999).

 

  Logical_Consistency_Report: All linear features in this data

      set are straight lines.  Two separate unique feature

      identifiers are included -- the landing facility location

      identifier (LOCID) and the Site Number (SITE_NO). 

      However, to uniquely identify a runway, the Site Number

      plus the Runway Identifier must be concatenated.

 

  Completeness_Report:  Landing facilities in this database

      consist of those identified in the NFDC 5010 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.

 

Positional_Accuracy:

  Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:

    Horizontal_Positiona_Accuracy_Report:  Horizontal positional accuracy is

        based on coordinate data provided

        in the NFDC 5010 database.  These coordinate data

        identify the approximate location of the Airport

        Reference Point (ARP) as reported by the landing

        facility on the NFDC 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.
