Following months of negotiating , planning data merges and beta tests, Navigraph announce a new FMS Data set. The data is available for download from the Navigraph website .
The current dataset contains 13,034 airports (20%), 33,685 runways (16%), 24,254 IAPs (55%) (Instrument Approach Procedures), 21,597 STARs (Standard Terminal Arrival Routes) (6%), 31,686 SIDs (Standard Instrument Departures) (5%), parsed into more than 48 different addon formats. The percentages denote the increase compared the previous coverage.
FMS Data is a general purpose dataset used for in a wide array of applications ranging from flight planning systems in the operations office to various navigational and performance systems onboard. Subsequently the data contains a massive amount of information to determine not only location of airports and waypoints, but also surface type and slope of runways, the layout of airport gates, navaid frequencies, holding patterns, obstacles close to defined routes, and much more.
New Charts Client and New Data Revision
Navigraph Charts 4.0 builds on the chart viewer client with an integrated video player and download manager formerly known as nDAC. Navigraph Charts offers 33,349 charts distributed over 1,866 airports all over the world. The charts are updated four times a year and are supplied by Navtech.
Along with the new Charts 4.0 release we also publish a new batch of chart data (batch #30), to replace batch #29 which was released in October 2012.
The revised Navigraph Charts 4.0 incorporates many of the functions which were requested by users through the previous forum. Some examples are:
- Pan and Zoom memory: The viewer remembers how the chart was last displayed.
- Tiled printing: Large enroute charts can now be printed on several sheets of paper.
- Online Backup and Recovery: Previously purchased charts can be downloaded again for free.
- Batch printing: Send an entire airport, or a subset of charts, to the printer.
- Airport deletion: Old airports, which are no longer needed, can be deleted.
