For many countries the use of these 'official' aerodrome ground layouts
is _explicitly_ restricted to performance of real-life flights, no
matter if you get these charts for free or have to buy them from
Jeppesen or your local authorities. Even the comparatively permissive
Danish AIP (I've never flown outside Europe) has a copyright which
reads:

Copyright

Take care ....
