Facility File Locations


Recommended Posts

Any chance someone can point me to the raw facility file locations? I understand we're no longer using the sector format (thankfully), but is there a location these facilities are stored?

 

I know I can import/export the GZ files through vSTARS, but as I manage most of my ARTCC's data through a database, I was thinking of exporting the data in the proper format right from the database. As it stands now, I'm going to have to develop each facility through vSTARS, but if I can dump the data out of the database properly, I could just release them straight from there.

 

I've been able to find the directory for vidmaps, and so on, but are the facilities stored in an accessible, unzipped location (that you don't mind sharing)?

Thanks!

Center locations, radar site locations (and their [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ociated elev, range, etc), airport locations, frequencies and so on.

 

EDIT:

To be more specific, in order to work with VRC and GVCCS a little more efficiently, I created a database. In there, I have some queries that will pull together various data sets for import into the files, and a very rudimentary DAT->SCT p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]r. What I'm wanting to accomplish by looking at the Facility XML is have the database dump the data out in the proper formatting. That way, I can tell it *for ROA, I want the RDVS to have one override, one ICom, and one monitor for West, East, Alternate, Local, and LYH Local* and it'll just dump it out so I don't have to set each facility up by opening the program and manually copying the data over.

Luckily, I've learned my lesson long ago about not keeping backups (and backups of backups) when I was managing our Sector files. Oops...

 

Thanks again!
