Looking at my local airport the mapping could be improved beyond what is visable on imagery (some can be imagery based though such as the 3rd runway), is using Civil Aviation Authority documentation for the airport a valid source of information?

As airports are (generally) difficult to survey for obvious reasons, can Lat/Lon co-ords from the CAA documents be used to map the ends of the runways accuratly, move the aeroway=areodrome node to the ARP point, etc?

Thank Andy useful page. My question should probably be re-worded to be: Are CAA AIP documents a valid source of information? Obviously we want the most accurate map and the only way to get that is be on the ground then imagery but as the AIP's have published Lat/Lon would this be allowed? Or should i take this to the licensing working group?
