Temporary wiki. Please read before changing: thanks! usAir created this wiki to hold the entire contents of the Airline Route Mapper data file. I've just edited it to remove that data, so should explain why: I appreciate usAir's initiative, but don't think the wiki in that form was a step forward.

1.) The data file is IMO too large to post in this location. Some (if not all) browsers load the entire wiki each time the thread is accessed. That had the effect of killing my browser for two to three minutes, then slowing my computer dramatically (and my setup, while not especially good, isn't the world's worst: DSL connection, latest Firefox version, 8GB RAM).

2.) The data initially posted were old ("from the last version of the airline route mapper", according to usAir's post on March 9 2015) and easily accessible (download Link: http://arm.64hosts.com/AirlineRouteMapper.zip), so nothing is lost by removing them from the wiki.

someone has just come out with another web-based route-map tool, discussion here:
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/trave...route-map.html

It is web based and I prefer the app I can run locally, but it is nevertheless an interesting alternative.

It seems like the solution would be to do some code development to enhance OpenFlights to crowdsource data, and dump their own routes.dat to GitHub on a regular basis. The inserts could also be facilitated by some automation/processing on the airlineroute.net RSS feed. Also, someone might also scrape info.flightmapper.net, but it's exact timetables are often wrong (routes are not) and it would probably violate its terms. Seems like it's a fair amount of work, but not intractable, and openflights seems like the right project to build upon. I'm very unimpressed by all these other slow, clunky web tools and don't think anything will come close to AirlineRouteMapper for speed.

Route Correction

This is an awesome tool but I noticed a slight error on one of the routes.

United no longer provides service between ERI and CLE. It has been replaced by ERI to ORD. Is there any way to get that corrected?

My apologies if this is not the proper place to report this but I haven't seen any other forms of feedback.

Thanks,
Mike

I don't think this tool has been updated since 2014 so it's quite out of date and has a lot of incorrect data. You can manually update your copy if you want by editing the files but I would suggest looking for something different to use.

OK thanks. The reason I asked is I actually use OpenFlights.org and their FAQ references Airline Route Mapper for their data and any corrections should be directed to them. I guess we are out of luck.
