This map is A2 size (594mm x 420mm).
Each LED represents a METAR from an airport around Australia.
There are 4 map styles to choose from:
Terrain and Bathymetry
Airspace and Major roads
Terrain Only: Terrain data is shown in the same colour scheme as the Australian VNC hypsometric tint with a shadow border around the landmasses.
Terrain and Bathymetry: This style is the same as the Terrain Only style but adds Bathymetric data to show underwater ocean depths.
Simple Airspace: Keep it simple with just the airspace of the region.
Airspace and Major roads: Add a little detail to the Simple Airspace design with the major roads of the region. For those IFR folks (I Follow Roads)
You can add a 3D look to the terrain styles too
If you want something in between I’m always happy to make a custom map for you as well.
SRTM data is at a resolution of 1 arcsec which equates to around 30m per pixel and GEBCO is at a resolution of 15 arcsec which is about 450m per pixel.
An LED light legend is also included by default but can be removed if requested.

As each METAR map of Australia is custom made to order, there are many options available including colour scheme changes. Just ask and I will endeavour to make whatever you want happen.
