These are runways in Minnesota that have been documented by field data collection. MSP is the exception, their three runways are shown based upon FAA data.

The displays airports listed by the type of airport: airport, heliport or seaplane base and the accepted users. Those facilities listed as public are open to the public and those listed as private require prior permission from the owner.
