Was looking up something this evening and came across the airport map of KMDT- Harrisburg, PA on their website. The graphics go down to the number of urinals in the restrooms...

Any other airports using this incredible detail for the layout of their airport? It says it's powered by Google -seems like a pretty neat travel tool if at an unfamiliar airport, but the level of detail went far beyond my expectations.

Would be interested if any other airports are using this format. Props to KMDT for really making sure people are familiar with their airport!

Wow, I'm more impressed that they have the jetways so detailed! Not many maps even show the jetways, nevermind have them position accurately.

that is impressive.
Is there a way to spin the actual view so you can see it from different angles?
I am able to zoom in and out, and scroll around but not pivot.

Eitherway it is impressive IMO.

Well,
firstable, it's a small building

and secondly, does the despription of the equipment or the numbers of urinals  reflect the reality in that building or is it more decoration?

I'm going to assume that it's real, as I can think of a million different ways to decorate a map than numbering the urinals.

Maybe one day scenery for FS2004 or FSX to have virtual terminal inside. LOL

I haven't seen too many airport maps and this one is impressive. Come on, let's get some devoted A.netter in the area to do to a bathroom inspections and set the record straight on the accuracy of MDT's map!

The latest effort by the SAN folks is pretty nice. Here's a link:

One thing I like is that you can get either an aerial (satellite) view, or the architectural rendering. There are also little "360" icons where you get actual photos of the facilities inside.

The level of detail and quality of rendering makes me think it's a roughly isometric high res screen dump of a 3D computer model used during the building/interior's design or renewal. Nice to see mind.

I've spent a lot of time in the MDT terminal, and the map is quite accurate.

The bathrooms in the map are quite small compared to the real ones. They're arranged differently and have less stalls and urinals, as well. A lot of the areas are depicted smaller than they actually are.

The bookstore and fast food place left of security, is it really sealed off like that, or no?

In reality, is it before or after security?

It's outside security, just as you exit. Good stop for a dose of unhealthy before an overnight!

I happened to go through the airport a couple of times last year and agree with one of the comments on apparent size on the map. In person, the building seemed more spacious than the map implies. It's a nice terminal.

Thanks for the link... and the laugh.

With technology, I suppose we can only expect more and more of this. Many online maps now show the layout of stores, such as the location of departments, etc.

I just never expected to find something this detailed, at such a relatively small airport. Sounds like for the most part it is pretty accurate. Would love to see a layout like this for LAX, LHR, or DXB!

Why waste this effort on THAT Pennsylvania airport? Someone should do this for SCE or JST, just for a laugh. Probably could throw it together in an hour.

Google is getting in big on indoor mapping. They can use a rolling cart sporting LIDAR and roll through various indoor spaces. Google is seeking to do this for large public structures, like malls, train stations, ect.

Microsoft is doing this too. It is one of the many projects I am currently working on. Some of the data is collected by mobile GPS, but none of it is LIDAR. A large number of these venues that have been mapped by both Microsoft and Google are based on whatever that venue has for a directory on their website.

Want to map Westminster Mall in California? Go to the mall's website, download a PDF of the mall directory, overlay it on top of aerial imagery, and draw a map of the venue. Then repeat the process thousands of times for malls, airports, stadiums, zoos, and train stations around the world.

Guess they must be feeling the effects of the sequester the Women's bathroom wait time page is no longer on the MDT website.
