Airport Terminals and Buildings

Postby tarunmarella » Thu Jun 18, 2020 2:56 pm

Is there a website where we can download airport buildings and terminals? A site where we can download developed aprons?

Flightgear comes with a complete world scenery (a bit outdated at the moment), and most airport layouts. There are however huge differences in how developed each airport is. Have a look here for some custom scenery. Also maybe try osm2city, for scenery that generates buildings from OSM map data.

Generally, larger european airports should be highly developed. In which area are you looking for?

Cheers,
Daniel

First of all, thanks for the links you sent me. They were highly informative and helpful!
I was looking for the area around London, so that link pretty much covered what I was looking for.
All I need to do now is spend some time and try to implement either Project3000 or osm2city.
Which one of the two do you think is more developed??

osm2city is the one being done... IIUC, it is the base for the new WS3 that is being worked on...

"Why not?" said Gurder.
