I gave up on the airport maps
11:30:07 AM
I did upload the map I was working on, Miami International Airport, to Commons, but I decided, due to the reasons listed below, that future maps won't be done unless the FAA changes things:
  1. It turns out the PNG map was out of date.  But it took some time to find the new version on the FAA's site.  The FAA doesn't make replacements easy to find.
  2. Each official map is a PDF that expires after one month.  So I would be redoing each map every month.
  3. The official PDF was poorly done.  Each text character turned out to be a path rather than editable text.  This meant that I had to retype each character.
Between the three, I decided it just wasn't worth it.  Sorry.  I will update the map if someone finds errors, but otherwise, I am dropping FAA airport maps until further notice.  You can see the map I did here.
