UK - Openlayers Layers

Hi and a Happy New Year to you all,

I’ve been trying out QGIS to produce some layers for my OSM dump1090 installation. I’ve got on quite well, and although I need to improve the accuracy of the layers (GeoJSON), I am happy to offer them to anyone who might be interested (drop me a PM with your email address, if so)

I have split them into Civilian and Military, thus:



as you can see, the layers can be turned off and on, otherwise the map is very busy:

This looks great - must have taken ages!

It did! and will continue to do so :slight_smile: but it’s the sort of thing I like to learn/explore


This look brilliant - I was looking for something just like this for UK airspace a few weeks ago. I would love a copy of the layers as they currently are.

I might be able to help further them if that would help any. I used to do a lot of IFR flight and I know a few free online resources where navaids, waypoints and airways can be found. Let me know if that would be of any use :slight_smile: Although to be fair, it looks like you’re most of the way there already!

PM me your email and they’re on the way. Would welcome your links too, in case they provide better info’


latest version with runways and extra zones:
