Aviation sectionals are as detailed and in some cases more so than your topological maps. Take a look at the detail, for example the double tepees, which indicate cluster obstacles like a clump of buildings. Take a look at the radials, NOTAMs (Notices To Airmen references).

If you click on the picture you can expand it. Good to go for aviation and land nav. I’m going to go out and check the light signature one of these nights and I’ll update this post with my findings.
