FSXmap shows all airports in Microsoft Fligth Simulator X (FSX) including data about runways. You can click on an airport to bring up
its runway map and additional data. Hovering the mouse over an airport displays the most important information. The airports are
shown with three different symbols:
These means in order: Large (international) airport, regional airport and small airport/airfield. Depending on the level of zoom, you may
not see all airports, they are displayed in order of size so that the largest airports are always the one shown. You can see in the blue
window at the top right corner how many airports in total there are within the map area, and how many of them that are currently shown.
To measure distances, click on the measuring tool at the bottom right corner. Then click on the map to define the initial point, and add
legs by clicking again. If you click on an airport during measurement, it is the airports position that is used in the measurement.
To search for airports, click the Find Airports button in the top right corner. Here you can search for airports in a certain country, state
or city, and sort them for the one closest to current map center. You can set various conditions in the search, such as runway length,
ILS and runway surface. If you click "Filter Map", only airports matching the current search are shown on the map.
If you click on an airport on the map, or in the search results, you bring up the runway map where each valid approach is indicated with
its number and color coding that tells ILS status and if the approach has VASI lights or not. The various symbols may look like this:
Blue frame indicates VASI, red frame no VASI. Green color is ILS with glideslope, yellow color is ILS without glideslope and gray color
means no ILS. If you hover the mouse over the symbol, you will bring up information about all details of the approach and runway.
You can sign in to FSXmap using your regular Google account via the button "Sign in with Google". Signing in allows you to set
preferences such as measurement units, and home position and zoom. You can also give comments to airports, and the airports are
then shown with a small symbol indicating a comment, like this:
The comments can be multiple lines and are also shown when you hover the mouse over the comment symbol. In the search window,
you can also set a condition to only search for airports that you have given a comment.
The system currently contains 24222 airports, 29489 runways and 58948 approaches.
