Exporting AIXM data using geoprocessing

This topic applies to ArcInfo only.

The Export AIS to AIXM tool supports the most robust AIXM 4.5 data available and is based on the rules and relationships set by the AICM/AIXM 4.5 standards. The Export AIS to AIXM tool allows you to create an AIXM 4.5 XML message from your geodatabase. This gives you the ability to manage and share your aeronautical data by using the Aeronautical Solution.
