Note

The longitudinal offset defines the distance along the centreline from the middle of the runway centreline towards the middle of the strip centreline. An offset in the direction defined from the threshold with the lower runway direction designation number towards the opposite runway threshold is indicated by a positive value. An offset in the opposite sense is indicated by a negative value. For Example: a runway oriented 09/27 has a strip that is extending 120 metres before the threshold of the runway direction 09 and only 100 metres before the threshold of the runway direction 27. The value of the longitudinal offset will be -10 metres.
