Finally some guidance on Airport. Thanks a bunch. I think this needs to get posted as soon as agreed upon.

I didn't notice anything I would change/add other than what was already mentioned.

Each airport should be drawn as a single area place, covering all airport-managed property and including any open space, parking lots, runways, taxiways, terminal buildings, control towers, orairport tenants, and other structures. This will ensure visibility on the map.


[EDIT: Added parking lots for good measure.]


This sounds pretty good to me

I told Sean to create duplicate place for now so that he can get all the Google Links accounted for.
Both Place Points = IAH Car Rental Center
but each one has up to 4 Google Links with it.

The only other idea I would have is to add the Car Rental names that are linked to the end of the place name. Not really a fan of it
example would be
Place Point #1 = IAH Car Rental Center - National / Payless / Avis / Hertz
Place Point #2 = IAH Car Rental Center - Budget / Firefly


But I agree, we do need to have guidance on this since most (if not all) unified rental facilities will have more the 4 rental companies

Correct, I was just pointing out that there would be multiple PP. They would actually be identical except the Google Links

So my understanding is that if a car rental facility has 4 or less companies then one PP with all links. If there are more than 4 companies then individual PP with rental agency - Airport name Car Rental. This is due to limitations of Google linking.

Sounds good to me

I like that table, looks a little easier to follow

I would think "Hertz rental - MSY" and "Hertz car return - MSY"

The Hertz rental is where you go to rent and the car return to return.

I may be wrong but I think ultimately Sketch was wanting Avis to start the name and not DEN.

I don't see why making them an AP should be an issue. I agree that if it has an FAA identifier then it should be mapped as an area. The only difference between the smaller ones mentioned and larger airports would be how mapped. I think the smaller ones should be just the "airport" itself, basically the airstrip itself.

Sean


I agree if the hangars are separated from the houses like you example. I know I have seen one example in Texas (can't recall where right now) that the hangars are located in the backyard of each house. I don't think those should be included in the AP, just the airstrip.
