Supporting material for ICAO Aerodrome Mapping Data Sets
This section provides supporting material for the encoding of AMD features.
This includes the list of ED-99()/DO-272() AMDB features and how they map into the corresponding AIXM 5.1.1 AMD features.
The encoding of features in AIXM 5.1.1 is further documented per feature.
The correspondences between the AMDB features and the AIXM AMD 5.1.1. features provide guidance on how to translate the content of one model to another based on the structures of the models.
However, care must be taken to ensure that:
- the content is translated according to the specific business rules and data encoding requirements for the intended applications; and
- the result is operationally correct and that the data is coherent and consistent.
The quality of the result can be checked by validating the data and ensuring that it supports the intended applications.
An example of where care is needed is the translation of wingspan data (see https://ext.eurocontrol.int/aixm_confluence/display/ACGAMD/TaxiwayGuidanceLine+correspondence).
