Description
Abstract
Bernardin-Lochmueller and Associates (BLA) created an Indiana subset of the
NTAD airports dataset described below.  Dataset includes airports,
heliports, seaplane bases, and stolports that are publicly owned, or
privately owned but open to the public, or owned by the U.S.
military. The following landing facilities have been excluded: 
private landing facilities not open to the public, glider ports
and ultra light landing facilities, as well as landing facilities
that do not have a current LOCID assigned to them. All facilities are
within the Great Lakes (AGL) FAA Region. Effective date of the data is
January 25, 2001.

National Transportation Atlas Database metadata states –

The Public-Use Airports database is a geographic point database of aircraft landing facilities
in the United States and U.S. Territories.  Attribute data is provided on the physical and
operational characteristics of the landing facility, current usage including enplanements and
aircraft operations, congestion levels and usage categories.”

Purpose
This dataset was compiled to provide locations and attributes for
airports. It is intended for a variety of uses by the public recognizing
that the horizontal accuracy does not support high precision applications.

Supplementary Information
This dataset, as well as many others, was compiled
for mapping and download as part of the Web site "A GIS Atlas for
Indiana," funded by the Indiana Department of Transportation.  Many
publicly available datasets were created, edited, and compiled for
inclusion in the Statewide Database Website where users can download data
or map online using ESRI ArcIMS. Many public data sources, not created in
conjunction with the statewide project,  were obtained by website
download, contacting originators, and creating spatial files from tabular
data.  A range of layer editing was used, specific to each layer, from
full creation, to data cleaning, to only reformatting metadata.  The level
of editing done by BLA or the Indiana Geological Survey (IGS) is fully
disclosed in the process steps of this metadata; credit for the
information is retained by the originator.
