PMDG 748 airport Map

I would assume that it's scanning your scenery.cfg file and by that finding the AFCAD files for each airport you have present in your scenery library. 

Similar to what AivlaSoft EFB does, when updating it's scenery catalog.

This is true for FSX; however, P3D recommends developers use methods that do not use the scenery.cfg file.  Everytime P3D launches it scans the add-ons present in various xml or cfg files and creates an addon library and it is this library that the EFB is using to find the AF (afcad) files, which then it must scan to filter runway length, get the takeoff and landing distance data and elevation for performance calculations.

Thanks for the corrections.
Very insightful.
