Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages.

136 Airfield Apron/Ramp Marking Comparisons A P P E N D I X C This appendix provides a side-by-side comparison of many of the unique apron/ramp marking schemes that were identified as part of the synthesis effort. This appendix does not include all the apron/ramp markings contained in this report. It focuses instead on marking variations with a similar intent but different colorations/layouts.

Dashed Taxilane Centerlines for Widebody Aircraft at MIA Diamond Taxilane Centerlines for ADG VI Aircraft at SFO Different Colors of Taxiway Centerline Outlines at SEA Different Colors of Taxiway Centerline Outlines at DEN (One Side) Taxilane Centerline Marking Variations for Aircraft of Different Sizes The synthesis identified multiple variations in how airports designate taxilane centerlines for different sizes of aircraft. The variations are shown in the following seven photos. All aerial photos were provided by Google Earth. The photo at Denver National Airport (DEN) was provided by airport staff. See Case Examples #3 and #4 in Chapter 4 for additional information.

The synthesis identified multiple variations in terminal apron gate markings. Variations in the marking schemes and colors are shown in the following three photos. See Case Examples #1 and #2 in Chapter 4 for additional information. All aerial photos were provided by Google Earth. CVG Gate Markings – Terminal B CVG Gate Markings – Terminal A BUR Gate Markings Terminal Apron Gate Markings

Hardstand Markings The synthesis identified multiple variations in hardstand markings. Variations in the marking schemes and colors are shown in the following four photos. See Case Example #5 in Chapter 4 for additional information. All aerial photos were provided by Google Earth. SFO – Air Carrier Hardstand SFO – GA Hardstand SFO – Bi-Directional Air Carrier Hardstand CLT – Air Carrier Hardstand

CBP and Border Protection (CBP) Apron Markings The synthesis identified multiple variations in CBP apron markings. Variations in the marking schemes and colors are shown in the following two photos. See Case Example #9 in Chapter 4 for additional information. All aerial photos were provided by Google Earth. LEX – CBP Blue Box SAT – CBP Parking Locations

In the absence of comprehensive guidelines related to standards for surface apron and ramp markings, airports have worked with their specific stakeholder groups (such as airlines and ground crews) to develop unique apron and ramp marking practices that meet their operational needs. Consequently, variations are seen in apron and ramp markings at airports across the United States.

The TRB Airport Cooperative Research Program's ACRP Synthesis 122: Airfield Apron and Ramp Surface Markings documents airport apron and ramp marking variations at U.S. airports.
