Obstacle identification surface (OIS)

Easily create and manage OIS in International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) or Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) compliant airport database. Plan scenarios and perform vertical analyses between surfaces and obstacles (including lidar data) with tools to create curved approaches and light signal clearance surfaces and generate OIS intersection and CNS. Build data-driven Type-A Charts with Obstacle and Terrain Profiles.

Signs and markings

Perform comprehensive collection, visualization, and management of airfield signs and markings in 2D and 3D using an intuitive and interactive user interface. Convert airport sign labels to feature-linked annotation for more precise placement of features and publish these as web services for stakeholder engagement.

Airport database

Use out-of-the-box schemata to create an aerodrome mapping database compliant with FAA and ICAO standards. Import and export FAA's 18B compliant data using data exchange tools.

Quickly identify obstacles that are penetrating the OIS surfaces. Create airport height restriction plans using the OIS Intersect tool to generate the most restrictive set of obstacle surfaces. Calculate obstacle distances against critical airport features with the Analyze Airport Features tool.
