Electronic Display of Aeronautical Information (Charts)
|Publication Date:||1 November 2004|
The objective of this ARP is to provide a set of user-centered design guidelines for the implementation of data driven electronic aeronautical charts, which dynamically create charts from a database of individual elements. The data driven chart is intended to provide information required to navigate, but it is not intended to supplant the aircraft's primary navigation display. These guidelines seek to provide a balance between standardization of equipment with similar intended functions and individual manufacturer innovation.
This ARP provides guidelines for the display of an electronic
chart that can replace existing paper. This document addresses what
information is required, when it is required, and how it should be
displayed and controlled. This document does not include all the
detailed specifications required to generate an electronic
aeronautical chart. This document primarily addresses the human
factors aspects of electronic chart display, and does not address
the software, hardware or system integrity/availabili
During the transition to data driven charts, the guidelines of this document should be applied to interim electronic chart products that may be pre-composed, such as vector or raster based electronic charts.
This document is designed primarily for IFR Aeronautical Charts. There is a limited discussion of its applicability to VFR charts.
