Aeronautical Sectional Charts of the United States Forkboy2 8/7/05 9:52 PM
This collection of SuperOverlays contains all of the Aeronautical Sectional and Terminal Area Charts for the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. These are based on high resolution digital versions of these maps produced by the National Aeronautical Charting Office. The maps in this collection are not current and must not be used for real-world navigation. They are for educational and simulation use only. I have just finished re-compiling these maps and they should now be the same quality as the original images.

Also included are 3D Airspace Polygons created by Lloyd Bailey. Again, these are not current.

UPDATE 11/2007 - Recompiled for higher quality images and movd to faster server

UPDATE 7/28 - Recompiled using more recent map versions, and higher image quality. Also, changed so that it's now a single large mosaic

Also....there is now a . Google Earth Plugin version than can be run from web browser.

Ok, done switching all of them over to the new index system. Just re-download the kmz file attached to the original post. Should be much easier to navigate than the old index system.

Hi, Matt!

I just found you here via your post on Rana's site :-)

'Scuse the newbie, but what does one do with a KMZ file?

Hi Jeff, if you have Google Earth (free download) installed just double click on KMZ file and it will automatically import itself into Google Earth.

I may have found a problem with the Canadian Toronto region maps. specifically C23 is missing. When you click on its file it opens up C22. And when you open C22 it opens up C21 region.

Any chance you could fix that?

I downloaded your file, but when I click on any of the individual sectional charts, no map overlay comes up. When am I doing wrong here?

Matt, not sure if Im the only one having the trouble but I downloaded the file and cant get a single map to load. I have tried several times with several of the placemarks and none seem to want to work. I have a cable connection so that shouldnt be the problem.

Just wanted to give you a heads up, because if this works, it would be great.

Perhaps I'm doing something wrong, but I can't get any of them to load either. I'm click on the "Load Map" blue link that pops up after you click on one of the "thumbtacks", but nothing happens... no red-bordered "loading" box or anything.

Can you do this for nautical charts next? :

Okay, that's what I get for not looking at the second page before I post.

The direct link to the Tulsa-area chart worked fine, got the red loading box for a few seconds, then the chart loaded. Direct link to the .jpg file worked also. Still, though, when I click on "Load Map", I get nada.

Thanks, I'll try and figure out what they did differently.

Just wondering if those interested in this great set of overlays, have seen the 3D Airspace?

Put them together.


Flight Instructors, Students, Pilots, and anyone else interested in aviation...

If you're having problems accessing the Sectionals, re download the KMZ attached to the first post in this thread. Moved the files to a different location and made them a little smaller to help with performance.

Re: Aeronautical Sectional Charts of the United St Forkboy2 10/16/05 12:02 AM
Sorry everyone.....my post yesterday that said it was now working was wrong....it wasn't working.

Good news is that NOW, it should be working again. Other good news is that I made a few improvements.

Just redownload the KMZ file from the topmost post in this thread.

Hello all:
This Aeronautical Sectional stuff seem to be useless. Can it be deleted from this database?

Sorry, try them now. I updated these a long time ago and forgot to update the link here at the BBS. Should work now.

I just wanted to say thanks for doing all these.
It's definitely a nice addition to the regular map
Re: Aeronautical Sectional Charts of the United St Forkboy2 7/24/08 8:42 AM
These have been recompiled to make one huge mosaic.

Also....there is now a . Google Earth Plugin version than can be run from web browser.

Finally finished update of these charts.


* The Sectional Charts have been merged into one huge mosaic so you no longer have to load them individually. The legend information in the border of the maps have been included separately.
* The map data has been brought up to date (although it is not again obsolete). This data and maps is NOT CURRENT and MUST NOT be used for real world navigation. For educational and simulation use only.
* The maps are now provided in a higher quality. The image quality of these maps is VERY close to that of the source data.
* Flyway maps have been added for 19 major cities.
* Additional Terminal Area Maps have been included. These now include TACs that were previously located in the border areas of the Sectionals.
* A Google Earth Plugin version of this collection is now available. This allows you to view these maps in a web browser instead of using Google Earth.

Thanks to Neil Neilson for providing the updated maps to me. He created a version of the Sectionals and TACs for WorldWind. You can visit Neil’s Website HERE .

If you’d like to help me out, I’m looking for a place to host the tiles for this map collection (about 20,000 of them). My webhost limits the number of files I can have on my server and this collection uses a big chunk of my quota. Bandwidth requirements are not significant. Let me know if interested. Willing to work out deal for banner or something.

Has the host changed for these files? Its no longer working, but think its due to Chartgeek going down?

Anyone able to update?
