My question is about the ‘waypoints’ we can switch on in the flightaware.com/live/flight/… display (overlays in upper right corner of the map ). Those ‘waypoints’ show up as a numerous black dots on the dashed blue route indicated for the flight. In addition, we can also look up the Route … (Decode) for the same flight, showing waypoints, NAVAIDs, Reporting Points, etc.
QUESTION: The number of ‘waypoints’ shown in the /live/flight/… display map is always much larger than the total number of points in the Route…(Decode).
Why is this?
What exactly are those ‘waypoints’ that show up as black dots on the dashed blue route indicated for the flight ib the map?
