A RC Field google map...

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hello to all member of Rc Club, I'm looking to make a google map of all RC Airfield in Canada and USA, so if you can give me by PM or Email the GPS data and Club name of your field I should try to do something with that....

The list of the club I received her data will be shown in this topic, so, one data for each Rc Field should be sent.

Thank you!

GPS coordinates

Hi JVFan,

When we register our fields with MAAC, they require GPS coordinates or ERS (Emergency Response Service) posted on side of road for the location of the field.

You may want to check with them and see if they will share the information with you, or perhaps you can put something together for the MAAC web site.

The following is the KWFD (Kitchenr Waterloo Flying Dutchmen) coordinates:

Flying Field:
ERS (Emergency Response Service) = 1090
Latitude: 43º 31'42.57" N
Longitude: 80º 34'29.47" W

KW Float Fly - Floradale Dam:
ERS (Emergency Response Service) = 7224
Latitude: 43º 37'19.25" N
Longitude: 80º 33'51.67" W

You can find the locations using the above with Microsoft Streets and Trips or Google Earth.

Hope this helps.

Here is a Google Earth link to the Halifax RCC site:

I guess not as the file type is not allowed.

OK, we'll zip it then. Hmm, I guess that way most anything will go if the size allows.
