Obtaining corner coordinates of runway

Postby shouvik1984 » Wed May 06, 2020 11:00 am

Hi All,

Is there a way to get the 4 corner coordinates of the runways through a SimConnect API. I searched in Simulation Variables but could not find anything in particular.

The NavDB files also contain only the runway lat lon only of the center of the runway (both from length and width). It would be extremely helpful to get the details that are used in rendering of the runway through the Simconnect APIs
Best Regards

The only way to do what you want requires looking directly in the BGL files, and some maths.
