Working towards the next version of the SWIM Supporting Material
Handbook supporting the EUROCONTROL Specification for SWIM Service Description - Ed 1.0 (Edition date: 01/12/2017, Reference nr: EUROCONTROL-SPEC-168)
Role of the handbook
The Specification for SWIM Service Description sets out a number of requirements to be met by a service description. It provides some basic examples to illustrate the requirements. However, the specification does not give much detail on how to best implement the requirements.
This handbook helps service description authors to better implement the requirements.
The handbook promotes the production of better service descriptions. It will lead to greater harmonisation in the implementation of the specification.
