Does anyone know of a database that details the GPS locations of beacons within Brisbane; or a data-set that tells me air routes and associated en-route beacons, way points etc.?

I'd like to be able to plot a course on a map (Google, Bing, etc) from A to B given an air route or flight plan. SkyVector looks very similar to what I'm trying to achieve.

    $\begingroup$ have you checked out apps like [foreflight](foreflight.com) or Flight Plan they may have what you are looking for $\endgroup$ – Dave Jun 7 '19 at 4:38
  • $\begingroup$ SkyVector already gives you GPS coordinates for every waypoint on your route in the PDF (click on "Nav Log"). Do you need anything additional? $\endgroup$ – Bianfable Jun 7 '19 at 6:52

  • $\begingroup$ I'm capturing ads-b messages once I receive an identification message I call the flightaware ap to retrieve the flight data. Within this satanic is the filed flight plan. Is need a database that holds the GPS coordinates of the relevant navigation beacons and presumably the way points of the airway the aircraft is one. $\endgroup$ – ronMilne Jun 7 '19 at 10:43
  • $\begingroup$ I'm trying to plot these points on my a map so I can track the aircraft. Ultimately the aircraft position to the filed flight plan will feed a machine learning model to accommodate ATC changes to the plan. Hope that makes sense. $\endgroup$ – ronMilne Jun 7 '19 at 10:46
