David blogged about an issue with Google maps and their use of a mercator projection (a problem if you want to use Google maps in aviation). His post, which was very interesting, also pointed me to a new website he has created: http://www.ourairports.com/.
This is a very cool website for many reasons:
- You can plot where you have been in the world (via aircraft) and get a KML file of it quickly and easily
- You can get search on any airport and get aviation info, accident history, photos and many other facts!
- You can read comments from other members who have visited these airports
Thanks for creating such a useful service/site, David! I plan to use it for all of my trip planning and tracking! Also, if you are interested, you can see all the airports I've been to here:
