Entity and Attribute Overview:
The Bureau of Aeronautics manages spatial features and attribute data for the air operations areas at each public use airport within the State of Wisconsin. Airport References Points (ARP) - An airport reference point (ARP) is the center point of an airport, located at the geometric center of all the usable runways. Buffer rings for each airport have been developed by WisDOT and are based on requirements outlined in the Wisconsin Highway Department's Facilities Development Manual. This data is intended to provide general guidance and airport information for highway construction projects in and around Wisconsin airports, specifically to make contractors and consultants aware of these areas as well as providing contact information for both public and private-use airports.
