Originally named Orchard Field Airport, the airfield that served as a manufacturing plant for C-54 military transports during World War II. O’Hare International Airport is now one of the busiest airports in America. In 1949, the airport was renamed to O’Hare International Airport to honor Edward O'Hare, the Navy’s first flying ace during World War II. The original code ORD (Orchard Field) remains to this day and was created from the first two letters of ‘Orchard’ and D comes from the last letter in ‘field’.
The complex array of runways, taxi pathways, gates and terminals is fascinating to explore in our beautiful map. The unique and complex airport diagram was created from accurate GIS and satellite data in 2020.
When flying into and out of ORD, passengers can get a bird’s eye view of Lake Michigan, Navy Pier, and the majestic skyscrapers in the Loop (like the Willis Tower, Trump Tower, and John Hancock Center). One can marvel at the wide span of homes, businesses, railroad, and road networks spanning out from the center of Chicago’s downtown area, the Loop.
Our O’Hare Airport Runway Diagram Wall Art features accurate GIS mapping technology, unique artist effects, terminals, and impressive details that are fun to explore. This airport map will delight you and your walls with happy memories of your travels and adventures.
About The Map: At GeoJango, we are experts in GIS and developing accurate maps. We use satellite imagery and GIS modeling techniques to accurately model the layout and composition of each airport. We take great care in modeling the airport runways, infrastructure, terminals, and surrounding landscape. We capture accurate runway orientations, lengths, and landscape features to scale - however the maps are not intended for navigation purposes. For a unique touch, we combine professional GIS, cartography, 3D illustration, and artistry to highlight the features of each airport. The result: impressive illustrations of each airport that is fun to explore and beautiful to display!
