Basically you have 2 types of runways, precision and non-precision. Non-precision is basically a runway that is used for visual approaches and can be very basic with just the runway numbers on it. Precision runways are used for instrument approaches and must have a few features such as the touchdown zone(the parallel lines at the first part of the runway), an aiming point(the two thick white lines), threshold and runway distance numbers.

Let's see if the FAA allows hot linking:
Quoting RyDawg82 (Reply 4):
Your precision approaches will provide a glideslope of some sort
In studying for the IFR exam, I see numerous references to nonpresicion approaches with vertical guidance--is this just when the localizer isn't aligned with the runway or something, or is their special equipment?
