Dallas, TX — August 17, 2021 — Land id™ (formerly MapRight) is excited to announce the release of our new Airports Layer. With this feature, our users can view accurate airport locations instantly. 

The new layer covers all official, operational aerodromes located in the United States and US territories. To make it as intuitive as possible, airports on Land id™ are color-coded, distinguishing them by type: Aerodrome, Heliport, Seaport, Glider Port, Ultra Light, or Balloon Port.

“Airports are not only essential to travel, but they also play a significant role in the broader economic health of a community,” says managing partner at Land id™, Steve Roberson. “Airports are hubs for businesses and tourism, they facilitate trade, and they drastically cut down the time it takes to provide emergency health services. All in all, the knowledge and insights this new feature can provide for our subscribers will be instrumental.”

The dataset supporting the new layer comes from the National Transportation Atlas Database (NTAD) published by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS). The geospatial data, however, comes from the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) National Airspace System Resource Aeronautical Data Product. Both sources, the BTS and the FAA, are segments of the US Department of Transportation (USDOT).

How To Succeed At Ranch Marketing

Land IdHow To Succeed At Ranch Marketing

The importance of marketing is well understood in real estate. To successfully sell a property, you don’t just need a winning personality and a repertoire of connections, you need to highlight the land’s unique benefits. While this is equally true when it comes to selling small residential plots or larger properties such as ranches, ranch marketing requires a different approach. With a ranch, there’s a lot more to show; you have to take into account the soil health, recreational activities, leasing rights, structures, productivity features such as irrigation, and much, much more. That isn’t to say successfully marketing a ranch isn’t possible — quite the contrary is true — you’ll just need a different set of weapons in your arsenal.
