WAAT routing system

Instruction manual
WAAT provides a database including all airports to easily display airport positions and flight routes.

How does it work?

To add an airport:

  • go to the list of airports and add your airport (alphabetized by city name!)
  • choose a three alphabetic character WAAT-airport code which is not used so far
  • instead of inserting the coordinates of the airport position directly, they have to be stored separately to use them everywhere else
{{ #ifeq:{{{1}}} | your WAAT-airport code | coordinates of the airport }}
  • in the table just insert
{{WAAT-coord | your WAAT-airport code | the zoom level }}
to display the coordinates (clickable link)

To show an airport in the multimaps extension:

| marker = {{WAAT-marker | WAAT-airport code | headline (optional) | text (optional) | file name for marker (optional) }}

Loading map...

  • enjoy!

To show a flight path in the multimaps extension:

| line = {{WAAT-line | first WAAT-airport code/second WAAT-airport code | headline (optional) | text (optional) | type = airplane type (optional) | col = HTML color codes without # (optional) | opa = opacity (optional) | wght = line width (optional) }}

Loading map...

  • the template automatically measures the length and calculates flight times
  • enjoy!

There are some more options in the templates available which are not documented so far. If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me via e-mail or send a message.


How can I get my airport and/or airline into the WAAT routing system, so I can make a zoomable route map?
And how do WAAT codes work anyway? It seems like airports have a three-digit WAAT code and airlines a two-digit WAAT code, but this is not how I find it presented here.
And what about ANACA codes, do they have a technical function in some wiki templates as well?

Invent an unused WAAT code for your Airport and add it here: Template:WAAT-airport coords. Then you can use it in a map. --Toadwart (talk) 16:06, 15 November 2017 (CET)
