  1. I'd be much more concerned if I was looking at evidence of improperly cut closing loops. I've seen none in this thread and heard of none in the sport.

  6. Unfortunately this is not an option. Over the years I've tried to get the data updated but no one a dz.com responds. Thanks for creating a map!
  7. Very cool. The DZs in Alberta are way out of date. What's the best way to send you updates? This page shows the 3 Alberta DZs today Alberta Sport Parachuting Association - Dropzones (aspa.ca) (full disclosure I'm the webmaster for ASPA.ca whose function is "The Alberta Sport Parachuting Association is a non-profit organization that promotes sport skydiving in Alberta") These are from the KMZ file and are incorrect
  8. Unfortunately the dropzone info is way out of date on here. If you do go about scraping the info and creating something new, it would be great to have a way for users to provide feedback for updates.
