• When displaying airport information the runway length does not show correctly. Essentially the decimal is being used as a comma for the thousands separator which makes the 3,650 ft runway display as 3.650 ft. at airport KPLU. This also makes the meter conversion inaccurate. This affects all airport that I checked. Not just the example airport. I looked at the source data (from the link “click here to edit”) and the data from the source is correct.

    The 22nd General Conference on Weights and Measures declared in 2003 that "the symbol for the decimal marker shall be either the point on the line or the comma on the line".

    Different countries use different symbols as decimal separators

    You say: "This also makes the meter conversion inaccurate."
    As I can see, there is no inaccuracy for KPLU runway length.
    3650 ft = 1113 m , also 3,650 ft = 1,113 m or 3.650 ft = 1.113 m

    I don't think that someone could ever imagine of a runway length of three and a half feet!
