    Is there a source that would provide the lat/lon/alt of Sectional landmarks, such as towers?

    How about this?

    https://www.faa.gov/air_traffic/flight_info/aeronav/digital_products/dof/

    The .dat files in the ZIP files you can download are just ASCII text. There are ID numbers, nearest city, longitude and latitude in degrees, minutes, and seconds with 2 decimal places, a type (tower, windmill, etc.), AGL height, MSL height, and some more information.

    Well obviously I can pull approximate coordinates off of Skyvector or iFlightPlanner websites, but I'm talking about officially surveyed coordinates.
