Data storage

This page collects a series of general data and information with each call by a person using it or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server’s log files. The browser types and versions used, the operating system used by the accessing system, the Internet page from which an accessing system accesses this page (so-called referrer), the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system to this page, the date and time of an access to the Internet page, an Internet protocol address (IP address), the Internet service provider of the accessing system and other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on information technology systems may be recorded.

Stored data in our log files will remain untouched and will not be viewed for any purpose. No data will be shared with third parties or inspected in any way.


Airportmap uses different services to process data and visualise it properly. For the map service, the OpenStreetMap project and CARTO provide tile data. Because these tiles are retrieved directly from the servers, corresponding data is also recorded there and linked to the user’s IP address. Further information at and For providing airport images, direct requests to the Wikimedia servers are made. Information about data storage can be found here.

In case of using Geolocation API, Airportmap will ask for the user’s permission and will only do so if explicitly requested by the user. For this, users must give their explicit permit in their browser or on their smartphone, which can also be revoked at any time. Possibly, this position will be saved as a cookie, see below. Further information about the Geolocation API can be found at MDN web docs.

Any liability for incorrect, erroneous or incomplete information is excluded. Airportmap was created using automated methods and data was not checked manually due to the size of the databases. In particular, Airportmap is not intended for pilots to navigate in real aviation and does not serve as a specific weather report or information service on significant weather conditions. The use of Airportmap is expressly intended for general information purposes only and is intended to provide users with a general overview of airports worldwide.
