VTSC/NAW - Narathiwat Airport

Somewhere in Thailand

Narathiwat Airport (IATA: NAW, ICAO: VTSC) is an airport in Narathiwat Province, Thailand. Serving the Narathiwat Province, the airport is strategically important for the region's infrastructure both geographically and economically as it serves as both a joint domestic and Thai military outpost airport. Currently there are only direct flights from the Narathiwat Airport to Bangkok which operate on a daily and bi-daily basis, however recent planning by the Department of Airports suggests the terminal will undergo major upgrades which is resulting in the planning of additional routes to and from Narathiwat from both domestic and international airlines.

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.
