In Response To: Airport symbol/ID on map overlay (Marc Brodbeck)
unfortunately, the same code is used to plot the national and regional plan-view RUC plots, so plotting even the major pacing airports could clutter up the national maps too much, we feel. If others want to weigh in on this, feel free to post your opinion on this forum, or email me or other members of the RUC team. (We are sometimes swayed by public opinion.)
As a possible alternative you may be interested in the RUC viewer at http://ruc.fsl.noaa.gov/view/. This is really for detailed study of RUC output rather than a quick look (it takes about 20 seconds to load a field), but you can add airports as an overlay, and you can see the name of each airport when you move the cursor over it.
Sorry we can't offer a quick positive response to your request.
