An AMDB is a Geographic Information System (GIS) database of an airport describing:

• the spatial layout of an airport;

• the geometry of features (e.g. runways, taxiways, buildings) described as points, lines and polygons;

• further information characterising the features and their functions which are stored as attributes (e.g. surface type, name/object identifier, runway slope).
