Stepanakert Airport (Armenian: Ստեփանակերտի Օդանավակայան) is an airport in the town of Khojaly, 10 kilometers north-east of Stepanakert, the regional capital of the de facto self-proclaimed Republic of Artsakh (also known as Nagorno-Karabakh Republic/NKR), de jure inside Azerbaijan. The airport, in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region, has been under the control of the Republic since 1992. Flights ceased with the escalation of the First Nagorno-Karabakh War in 1990.

Usage

Technologies and Data Sources

This app is based on the Google Maps API, which on the one hand provides a powerful programming interface for web-based mapping applications, and on the other hand opens access to high quality satellite imagery for places all over the world.

The backend is realized in Python with the help of the excellent Flask micro framework.

The locations of airports have been imported from the public domain data provided by the aviation enthusiasts at OurAirports.com. The app displays randomly selected airports of the categories 'large_airport','medium_airport' and 'small_airport' for which runway coordinates are available.

Furthermore, the user interface incorporates icons from Font Awesome and fonts from Google Fonts.
