What is the Aeronautical Solution?

This topic applies to ArcInfo only.

The Aeronautical Solution is part of a complete system for managing data, products, workflows, and quality. It is an extension to ArcGIS that tightly integrates with ArcGIS Desktop; ArcGIS Server; and other extensions such as Data Interoperability, Spatial Analyst, 3D Analyst, and Workflow Manager. The Aeronautical Solution is bundled with complementary components that include Production Mapping tools, Data Reviewer, and Task Assistant Manager. Together, these components provide the aviation industry with a comprehensive solution to solve challenges and inefficiencies for aeronautical data, product, workflow, and quality management. The Aeronautical Solution provides a resolution to the challenges that the aviation industry faces, such as the demand for more products, operating budget cut-backs, dynamic lists of standards, and numerous changes to information.

The Aeronautical Solution focuses on four main sections: data, product, workflow, and quality management. The primary objective of the Aeronautical Solution is to efficiently manage aeronautical information, products, and integrated workflows to generate navigational products compliant with standards.

Managing data

With the Aeronautical Solution, you can

Managing products

With the Aeronautical Solution, you can

Aeronautical products you can create include International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)-compliant charts, standard instrument departure charts, instrument approach charts, enroute charts, and visual flight rule charts (visual approach charts or sectionals).

Managing workflows

Workflow management is crucial to managing the flow of information and keeping track of the status of jobs, data updates, and chart production. Workflows manage all components to perform and monitor work efficiently by standardizing processes, centralizing knowledge, and organizing tasks and people.

You can

Managing quality

With the Aeronautical Solution, you can verify data integrity with native spatial or attribute and topological data validation within a GIS environment (Data Reviewer) before it is committed to the database.
