What is the Aeronautical Solution? (Aeronautical Solution)

This topic applies to ArcGIS for Desktop Advanced only.

The ArcGIS for Aviation: Charting is part of a complete system for managing data, products, workflows, and quality. It is an extension to ArcGIS that tightly integrates with ArcGIS for Desktop; ArcGIS for Server; and other extensions such as ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension for Desktop, ArcGIS Spatial Analyst extension, ArcGIS 3D Analyst extension, and ArcGIS Workflow Manager extension for Desktop. The Aviation Charting is bundled with complementary components that include Esri Production Mapping tools, ArcGIS 10.1 Data Reviewer for Desktop extension, and Task Assistant Manager. Together, these components provide the aviation industry with a comprehensive solution to solve challenges and inefficiencies for aeronautical data, product, workflow, and quality management. The Aviation Charting provides a resolution to the challenges that the aviation industry faces, such as the demand for more products, operating budget cut-backs, dynamic lists of standards, and numerous changes to information.

The Aviation Charting focuses on four main sections: data, product, workflow, and quality management. The primary objective of the Aviation Charting is to efficiently manage aeronautical information, products, and integrated workflows to generate navigational products compliant with standards.

The Esri Mapping and Charting solutions include industry-specific, standards-based templates, rules, and tools. Through configuration, the tools and processes can be adapted to meet maturing business needs, and therefore an API is not included for customization.

Managing data

With the Aviation Charting, you can

Managing products

With the Aviation Charting, you can

Aeronautical products you can create include International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)-compliant charts, standard instrument departure charts, instrument approach charts, enroute charts, and visual flight rule charts (visual approach charts or sectionals).

Managing workflows

Workflow management is crucial to managing the flow of information and keeping track of the status of jobs, data updates, and chart production. Workflows manage all components to perform and monitor work efficiently by standardizing processes, centralizing knowledge, and organizing tasks and people.

You can

Managing quality

With the Aviation Charting, you can verify data integrity with native spatial or attribute and topological data validation within a GIS environment (Data Reviewer) before it is committed to the database.
