Using Google Maps for Airspace Awareness
The Kansas Department of Transportation has released an Airspace Awareness Tool that uses Google Maps and the Google Earth plugin to display useful information for pilots.
Pilots can use the map to view the location of aviation obstructions, such as wind turbines and towers, in Kansas. The tool includes a number of other useful layers that can be overlaid on the map, such as military training routes and special use airspace. It also includes a selection of handy tools for drawing and measuring on the map.
