INF10.7 — Aeronautical Information Exchange - Aerodrome mapping service

SWIM comprises standards, infrastructure and governance enabling the management of information and its exchange between operational stakeholders via interoperable services.

This implementation objective is addressing the Aerodrome Mapping Service which provides on-request airport layout features and maps as a data service. The service aims to deliver Aerodrome digital maps to operational stakeholders. The service supports information filtering with spatial, temporal and logical operators. Digital Aerodrome Map can be used to present actual/real-time information about closure of runway, taxiway, work in progress on aerodrome movement area, temporary erected obstacles.

Airspace users are not mandated to implement this, but it is recommended that Airspace Users system consume and use the information provided by the Airport Mapping Information Service provided by AISP in daily operations.

System requirements

The Aerodrome Mapping information exchange shall be implemented by:
• Airports that are the primary data provider supporting the Aerodrome mapping service. AISPs are the primary provider of the service
• AUs that are the recommended primary consumers of the service and the information it provides

The provider of the Aerodrome Mapping Service ensures that systems implementing the service:
• May allow selecting aerodrome features and maps as GIS layers.
• May allow information filtering with spatial, temporal and logical operators.
• May output data in formats based on Open Geospatial Consortium standards (e.g. simple GML features, SHAPE files, GeoJSON)
• May be based on the AMXM to facilitate GIS integration. Using AMXM will satisfy the related EUROCAE WG-44 Industry standards in terms of data formatting, as referenced in the SDP Supporting Material.

NOTE: For a full description of the services as well as of the associated system requirements, see the Family 5, in the SESAR Deployment Programme edition 2022, Approved by the European Commission.

NOTE FOR MILITARY AUTHORITIES: It is the responsibility of each military authority to review this Objective IN ITS ENTIRETY and address each of the SLoAs that the military authority considers RELEVANT for itself. This has to be done on top and above of the review of "MIL" SLoAs which identify actions EXCLUSIVE to military authorities.
