Hello all,

I have been working on updating my Madison, WI sector file and maps for Approach control, and I have a really good VSTARS video map, while our home sector file is way too generic at ZAU. I know there has been discussion of VRC to Video but how about the other way around? Let me know if I missed a topic that already discusses this as well. Thanks alot.

Where did you obtain the source data for the vSTARS video map? Or was it (vSTARS Facility File) given to you?

Do you have .DAT files from the FAA for MSN?

Hey Andrew,

I got the MSN Vstars file from someone else. I dont have any DAT data from the FAA either...though I do know where I may be able to attain it. Any ideas on how to convert the file or no?

Sure, parse the data from the XML file, convert the coordinates to VRC format and paste into VRC SCT/SCT2 file.

Send me the file and I'll play around with it, see what I can come up with for ya.

Did you figure it out? I think you might be using the MSN file I made and I have all of the source data.
